"Just briefly:... I'm a huge Auger fan, but I'm not much on cheezy electronic sounds. This album would have been much much nicer if he'd been able to access a B3 for this gig, rather than alternating a rhodes and a Korg Poly800 - ouch! Well, I guess it was state of the art at the time, and B3's are hard to line up - you don't bring your own when you fly in for a quick gig in Germany. The Korg BX3 was a poor substitute, the 8-bit digital synths of 1985 were not really up to the quality demands of professional gigging. On the other hand, if your ears aren't tuned for rich analogue sound, the playing is technically unimpeachable, as you would expect. Just disappointing for a B3 junkie. I find I can't listen to it, except in brief doses, whereas I have just about every B3 outing of his career back to back on an MP3 cd I can listen to all day (cobbled from cd's I own - I believe in supporting artists I like, especially as my tastes are far off mainstream)."
