May Blitz have been compared to Led Zeppelin, the early Black Sabbath, or the early Uriah Heep. The only difference being that May Blitz never had their great breakthrough. Their history ended after only two LPs which, however, are today in high demand. On Tuesday, 22nd October 1970, the group performed in the Gruga hall at the third Essen Pop & Blues Festival. The event was recorded semi-professionally. The recordings could be purchased from the promoters and were mastered in a studio with great effort and care. The sound, however, is naturally not as good as that of the two studio LPs. The 32-page booklet contains a long band history in German and English, photographs, a detailed discography, numerous cover and label repros as well as a personal retrospective report by guitarist and singer James Black. A must for collectors. It is the first legitimate release of a May Blitz live recording and is released both as CD and as LP.

May Blitz wurden mit Led Zeppelin, den frühen Black Sabbath oder den frühen Uriah Heep verglichen. Der Unterschied war nur, daß May Blitz nie den Durchbruch schafften. Schluß war schon nach zwei LPs, die heute sehr gesucht sind. Am Donnerstag, dem 22.10.1970, trat die Gruppe beim 3. Essener Pop & Blues-Festival in der Gruga-Halle auf. Die Veranstaltung wurde halbprofessionell mitgeschnitten. Die Bänder konnten von den Veranstaltern erworben werden und wurden aufwenig im Studio nachbearbeitet. Trotzdem reicht der Klang natürlich nicht an die beiden Studio-LPs heran. Das Booklet enthält auf 32 Seiten neben einer langen Bandstory in deutsch und englisch, Photos, einer ausführlichen Diskographie sowie zahlreichen Cover- und Label-Repros auch einen persönlichen Rückblick von Gitarrist und Sänger James Black. Ein Muß für Sammler. Die erste rechtmäßige Live-Veröffentlichung von May Blitz. Erscheint gleichzeitig als CD und als LP.
