3 stars Originally released on VHS only in 1989, this is a real treat.

In fact this one is superior to the Live in Moscow-album. You can hear Heep run through mostly hardrocksongs of the 80's and their new album Raging Silence. Of course there are some older songs like Look at Yourself, Wizard and July Morning, but mostly this is a hardrocking affair.

Bernie Shaw is not at his best, mostly he is screaming his way through the songs. But he is still young and I guess the band plays really loud (most band around 1989 played way too loud).

The energy of Mick Box, Trevor Bolder and Lee Kerslake is apparent. Finally they have a real band again. This line-up will prove to be the longest line-up of Heep, relentlessly touring throughout the 90's and 00's and occasionally releasing an album.

The soundquality is alright, but as said; the band plays loud, so there's not much dynamic, just a hardrocking band playing hard rock. But at they do it really well. Except that Bernie Shaw sometimes is just screaming instead of singing. But it doesn't really matter to me,

This album is not really important for progrock-fanatics, it's just plain hardrock, but Heep-fans worldwide would really enjoy this one, especially because it's much better than Live in Moscow.

Now all I want is a full live-album with Pete Goalby on vocals.
