I was there, and this release is a nice surprise. The rare beauty of the live lied in its almost unexpected climaxes which would came out of "free jazz" moments, where both Kelvin Sholar and Mike Banks were building their ways into the structures set by Carl Craig and his laptop. But I would have loved to see the full live released and I can't prevent myself from feeling a bit disappointed, for while "At Les" gives a good idea of the whole gig, it's too damn short for the people who were there, and not long enough to inspire as much emotion to those who were not there as it did in live.

Here are beautiful, live recordings of two classic techno tracks! On the A side, Twilight, I can't really get into this live version of this track. Wendell Harrison is going grazy on the clarinet, here. I prefer the original which is more a laidback, jazzy techno track. Some solos on the keys would have fit better to this track, I think. On the B side, At Les, probably one of my favorite Carl Craig tracks. Drum programming is just really original here. I have never heard anything like this before; warm melodys and strings. Legendary Mike banks on the keys here. It's a great recording; timeless; classic!
