As far as cover design is concerned, the Cologne bluesers once again give us a weak picture, because the photo seems rather silly. Musically, however, they have clearly developed further. The first production suffered from a lack of presence and a sterile recording. But now the club conveys energy and joy of playing, not to forget interesting and varied songs. Compared to its predecessor, the basic sound is also much more earthy and dirty. Thrilling shuffle ("Hanging By A Thread"), groovy blues rock with great vocals ("Money Honey"), a slow blues with slightly jazzy overtones ("Charade Of The Lost And Found") and the harmonica feature "Ride This Train" prove the hard and passionate work the band did during the recording. Way to go, respect.
