On the 1973 live album LAST, the final official release before Agitation Free's 1999 reunion, the group builds upon the psychedelic jams that characterized its two previous recordings, giving increased priority to slow-building electronic textures and soundscapes. Opening cut "Soundpool," the first of the album's three recordings, marries electronic orchestration with a extended guitar jam. "Laila II," originally from 1973 album 2ND, is teased to epic length. Sidelong closer "Looping" is given over to hypnotic modulations, ending the first phase of Agitation Free's career less with a bang than a whisper, or a drone.
