AllMusic Review by

It's titled Live in Berlin, but according to a small note in the booklet, "this album was recorded at various European concerts including Berlin in late 1995." It's a reunion version of the band, and one that's missing key member Georg Kajanus from the lineup. So it's really an extraneous souvenir for diehards, even if the sound quality is good and the performances reasonably spirited and accomplished. Their big mid-'70s British hits "Girls Girls Girls" and "A Glass of Champagne" are here, of course (as is their much smaller hit "One Drink Too Many"), with some less expected things like "Mack the Knife," a "La Bamba Medley," and a "Ghostbusters Medley" thrown in. The tone of much of the material reflects frivolous romps of the jet set through drink and casual affairs, though it's hardly going to make anyone forget Bryan Ferry.
