(The Crack In The Cosmic Egg) Another two and a half years on,
and now sans keyboards, but with one Rainer Hansen on winds, it was all
change again. LIVE "Trockeneis Zum Frühstück" (that's "Dry Ice
For Breakfast" incidentally) had the band at the breakfast table on the
front cover, with frothing mugs, and to the rear are a number of well-known
LP covers that were no doubt amongst their key influences, i.e. Miles Davis'
BITCHES BREW, Soft Machine THIRD and Mahavishnu Orchestra's BIRDS OF FIRE amongst
them. LIVE saw an instrumental return to the jazzy edge of their debut, but
also felt a little more like later Kollektiv or many other jazz-rock band of
the era, but still with that unique Alcatraz "fire".
