“A previously unreleased classic…Webster audibly relishes the group…a fascinating document.”

John Fordham

The Guardian

“In a matter of moments, late 1960s Soho springs to life – but there’s more than nostalgia here…”

Mike Hobart

Financial Times

“The recording quality is pretty good, catching Webster’s asides onstage but reducing audience noise…Ben is in strong, alert form.”

Jack Massarick


“Webster is on marvelously mellifluous form…Tracey is a highly compatible accompanist…music with a complex mixture of emotions…tenderness, elation, anger, sorrow.”

Martin Gayford
