36287 Breitenback- Live at Hoi Huhnstadt
(Herzbergverlag v-hb-018)

From Aural Innovations #39 (May 2008)

This is a brand new double CD that features some excellent performances from the Berg Herzburg Festival between 2005 and 2007. The bands featured are: Areknames, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, Pavlov’s Dog , Kraan, Sahara, Quantum Fantay, Chris Farlowe, Pete Brown featuring the Hamburg Blues Band, Van der Graaf Generator, Colosseum and Bernd Witthüse. Often the band performs quite long and jammed out tracks. Areknames open the CD with a great jamming prog rock track called a new song. The only filler is the 4½ minute Colosseum drum solo for which I see no point. The quality of the sound and the music is very high. These mostly 70’s band still can really play and are having fun. Good stuff and a good value (102 minutes of music). Oh yeah... the Arkenames and Quanum Fantay sets have been released on this label as well.
