Good "live" recording of some of their early to middle 70's stuff. Live in London is a bit better but if you were into this band way back when, I think you will appreciate this. Of course a wee buzz helps as it does with all Amon Duul 2 recordings.

This is the complete BBC recordings by Amon Düül II. Most of it was already available in the 1992 BBC Live in Concert album.

Mostly recorded at the Golders Green Hippodrone, London in 1973 Manana is an excellent companion to their 1973 Live In London album. Unlike Live In London, Manana concentrates largely on their post 1972 material with the exception of two tracks ("Kanaan","Dem Guten, Schonen, Wahren") from their 1969 debut Phallus Dei. Most of the performances here are tight and energetic, although not as well played as the performances on Live In London. This recording also features many of the same tracks performed live in the studio for the John Peel Show in 1973 as bonus along with two rather poor remixes of previously available material which Amon Duul II seems to be dumping on all their disks as bonus tracks.

 Recorded live in concert at the Hippodrome, Golders Green, London, UK on May 10, 1973.
