Excerpt from the booklet:
Those who listen to this music for the first time may find it hard to believe that it is the spontaneous recording of a concert, an unmanipulated live process. This record enables us to share the fundamental experience of two musicians at a particular moment in time and state of consciousness. It is a document of their immediate creative ideas which are just as valid now as they were at the time of playing.
 
Both WERNER LÜDI, born in Poschiavo, in the South of Switzerland in 1936, and PETER BRÖTZMANN from Remscheid, who was born in 1941, are founders of what was, in the sixties, to become the last rebellion of an avant-garde striving to escape from the dead-end routine of the theme-solo-theme. (...)
 
The music played by this duo gives me hope fort he future. It is, as it were, the ultimate proof of just how stupid the present mania for aping youth is. (...) In their musical dialogue, BRÖTZMANN and LÜDI create an art which incorporates familiarity, knowledge and experience (and I do not just mean self-knowledge). Both of them, each in his own way, have retained the passion which set the signals at that time. (...) In addition, this recording combines great intensity with an astonishing awareness of form. Form which has been neither calculated nor copied, not even borrowed from their own reserves. (...)
This music portrays anger, opposition, persistance. It consists of a mass of single combats, conflicts and personal victories. That too. BRÖTZMANN/LÜDI do not forget their roots. Their music is, however, often very gently, yes, even tender. - A music of contrasts (…) and a performance of brothers.
