The above timings are song timings, not CD track timings.
Some years ago i received a box of master reels to transfer, all recorded in the S.F. area
in 1969 and 1970, and including a variety of artists. I think most of these are in
circulation, how widely i don't know. They were all recorded by the same taper, and these
were the original reels.
This is a clear recording, but the vocals are low in the mix, so they are hard to
hear when the instruments get loud. There is a cut at about 5:03 into "Around the
Plynth" where the tape flip occurs.
I don't have a firm date for this. The Faces played the Fillmore West on 07-10 May 1970
and again on 28 October. I think their first LP as "The Faces" came out in March, and
Stewart's solo LP came out in June (September in the UK). All of the songs in this show
are from those two LPs except for "Maybe I'm Amazed". That song had appeared in April on
a McCartney LP, and The Faces covered it on their second LP in March 1971.
There appears to be firm documentation for the two shows on 28 October, and the setlists
don't match this tape. But it's conceivable that they had these songs under their belts
by the May shows. One useful webpage on Ron Wood gives a setlist from one of the May shows:
That doesn't match this tape, but it contains the same two songs from Stewart's solo LP
and "Amazed" as well. So it would seem that this tape is one of the other three shows
from the 07-10 May 1970 run.
It's interesting to note that before the last song, Stewart introduces "It's All Over
Now" as a song "off my new album." It seems strange that he would say this of an LP
not yet released, but the release in the US was only a month away so maybe not so strange.
