Live At Pohoda – London Electricity Big Band (Hospital Records)

This is not ordinary album, but something worth mentioning here. Some of the greatests hits from London Electricity played by live band. We saw this performance on Let It Roll festival, this recording is from Slovakia’s Pohoda Festival. Album is great, but you need to experience this live!
