"Just don't try to curse us, just dig it!"
01. 8 Mad Grim Nits
02. Snakes & Ladders
03. High Beech (introduced as "Limeys"?)
05. For Mad Men Only
Total Time ::: 38:57
::: Quality... Nowhere near hi-fi but a relatively clear distant low gen recording in what sounds like a large hall with no audience interference (maybe due to monstrous volume!). By the 3rd song the vocals sound like they were overloading in the PA somewhat. Check samples to see if you can handle the vibe or to get psyched for its ear-bleeding potential.
::: Warts: Scarcely any once I repaired all dropouts & fixed some volume fluctuations. Quality is what it is but it's a fairly smooth sailing ship once it leaves port.
::: NOT the same as the common Essen 1970 show from the boot with Savoy Brown & Fotheringay.
::: In April 1971, May Blitz & Patto supported the Faces on a brief German tour thru Dusseldorf (14th), Hamburg (15th), Frankfurt (16th) & Munich (17th). Here's their entire Munich set.
