Aera - Live. 1980 Germany

Aera's Live album, recorded in 5 different locations, starts off with a bang as Roman Bunka goes riffing mad. After this auspicious beginning, the band settles into its familiar funky jazz rock groove and mostly blows by without notice. Final track is a long improvised version of a Roman Bunka composition that was later released on Embryo's Reise as 'Lost Scooters', and is exceptionally better on that album than found here. A decent album, but never lives up to its initial promise.
