This is a complete audience recording with great quality.
The performance suffers from a lot of equipment problems for the band. Bill's bass drum pedal brakes and the constant monitor problems plague the group (lots of feedback). It really feels like there was no soundcheck for this show. It seems that nobody in the audience understands a thing Marc says to them as well.
As you'll see by the times for the songs, much jamming takes place. Check out the additional lyrics at the end of Baby Strange.

As far as the recording goes, this sounds really good as far as the average sound on most audience recordings of a 1972 vintage. I think a little noise reduction might have applied to this title (you can hear an occasional high pitched whistling in spots) but I can't say for sure since there is very little side affects. This is the only T. Rex audience recording I've ever heard as well as the only one from 1972 that I know of. One also exists of the Tokyo show in 1973 released on the bootleg cd "T.K.Y. Blues". If someone has this please post it.

Thanks for reading.
