Brian Auger and the Trinity-11-7-68
Julie Driscoll w/Brian Auger & the Trinity, featuring Don Ellis
Berliner Jazztage, Philharmonie
November 7 1968,FM
Maybe the November 28th was the date of the FM broadcast?
Hey friends, this wasn´t made from a creased Master audience tape, but from a Cassette copy of a Master FM recording, somebody taped late 1968!
In my opinion a true artefact of the Beat/Jazz/1968 scene here, especially in Berlin............!
A controversal show when it was even performed as you might recognize when listening to it... Half the audience was begging for more, the other half was booing after Julie´s songs!
Don´t expext too much "Beat" stuff here, since the first part of the show is very "jazzy"!
After Julie appeared, she did a version of "Season of the Witch" emerging like a dream out of all this jamming before and later closed the show with a groundbreaking "When I was a Young Girl", a real proof of her great voice and personality!
I added a nice version of "Wheels of Fire", as a possible encore from another show, probably recorded the same day/days... (Nothing definitely known!)

Total Time: 49:14
Lineup: Brian Auger: Keyboards, Julie Driscoll: vocals, Clive Thacker: drums, David Ambrose: bass, Don Ellis - e-tp (2)
This is a very nice show with no other flaws as noted above!
Enjoy this great piece of histoy!
