About the Album

This 2-CD album began as a bootleg on the Highland label in 2001. In 2002 it was officially released by Glass House Recordings (number 108CD) with the cover shown.

All of Disc 1, and tracks 1-2 of Disc 2, were recorded Live at Music Hall, White Plains NY, October 3, 1975. The remainder of Disc 2 was recorded live at Community Theatre, Berkeley, CA, October 28, 1975.

One fan reports, "Tone quality is very bad. The sound of whole CD is monophonic sound with slightly high frequency. It [sounds] recorded far from source of the band in a concert." Another fan reports "the sound quality is not bad."
