"This live recording of a series of concerts covers Jack's career from the beginnings right up to the present. Wonderfully recorded in Cologne Germany in 1993, you get the songs as they were recorded on the albums(horns, etc), not just stripped down live versions. And what a cast of performers! Ginger Baker, Gary Moore, Pete Brown,Bernie Worell, Dick Heckstall Smith, and others who have played with Jack over the years. The Graham Bond years are represented by 2 songs,"neighbor neighbor" and "first time I met the blues". Lots of Cream tunes too, and the sparks really fly when Jack, Ginger and Gary Moore tear through the Cream tunes. There are even a couple of tunes from Jack's second solo album, "things we like". Don't know when these tunes have been done in concert before. Over all, a thoroughly enjoyable set that shows that he is still a force in live rock music. I understand there is a film version of this around too. Highly recommended."

"This is a wonderful culmination of Jack's musical life shared with his friends. The first CD is a mix of some Jazz and Blues tracks. The first couple are smaller groups, better songs, and more interesting. By the time the big groups get in and play together, it gets kind of cheesy.The second disc starts with some of Jack's standards, with a wonderful mix of artists. My personal favorite are the tracks with Ginger Baker and Gary Moore blasting through some old Cream tunes. They're awesome, and really were much better than the subsequent BBM project produced.If you're a long time Jack Bruce fan, this is really a terrific album that is both interesting and fun. The sound quality is great, and some of the tracks are just amazing."
Cities of the Heart - Jack Bruce

"If you have but one album of this mans work, this is the one. His voice is strong and bright -
His playing is every bit as good, if not better, as his halcyon days in Cream.
Surrounded by a band of equally talented musicians this CD is Brilliant through and through."
