"Their Cologne concert from 2/16/1972 in great sound quality. With their first line-up they are playing songs so far unknown on record. With booklet of 32 pages." "On 02/26/1972, Gila played a gig in Cologne that was broadcast line the in 'Nachtmusik' WDR radio show. Since the WDR had only acquired the broadcasting rights whereas the publishing rights are owned by the artists, nothing stood in the way of this CD release. Thanks to the latest technology the recording, which does not entirely satisfy the demands of today's listeners, has been most carefully dehissed and remastered but not changed. Happily, all tracks are as yet unknown. Their sound is reminiscent of the first Gila LP and they are its equal in every way." From Crack In The Cosmic Egg: "Gila quickly established themselves as the foremost exponents of psychedelic space-rock. By 1971, they recorded one of the finest cosmic classic of Pink Floyd inspired space-rock. Superbly conceived, [their debut LP] featured an amazingly innovative music that took hints from all the classic Pink Floyd innovations, and went further, blending in ethnic textures with the complex multi-guitars of Conny Veit, and superb percussive fired space drives. Naturally, it's regarded as one of the finest Krautrock albums. Gila were an extraordinary band, at the peak of the Krautrock ladder, and it's a shame that this original incarnation only made the one album. Gila had a vast repertoire, and concerts would include jams in excess of 20 minutes, covering a range from weirder Guru Guru realms to the most ethereal Agitation Free kind of trips."
