A PSYCHEDELIC NIGHT
Dec 22, 1970 (City Hall - Sheffield, England) 2cdr
Recording - Audience/Good
Label - Triangle Records PYCD 038/39
Comment - Some clicks. This is (probably) the only known recording of 'Alan's Psychedelic Breakfast'. 'Atom heart Mother' is with orchestra (and a long version, too) and is encored without the orchestra. 'A Saucerful Of Secrets' is interupted just before 'Celestial Voices' due to a powerouttage, but resumes a bit later on.

ROTTERDAM '71
Apr 3, 1971 (Oude Ahoy Hallen - Rotterdam, Holland) 2cdr
Recording - Audience/Very Good
Label - tape to cd transfer
Comment - At times there's a bit of what sounds like FM-radio disturbance (or a not grounded microphone).
Don't know where this came from or what it is. It's notable but not really disturbing either.
This is the complete show from this date. The running order of the songs are a bit changed though. Embryo was the encore.

LIVE IN ROME, PALEUR '71
Jun 20, 1971 (Paleur - Rome, Italy) 2cdr
Recording - Audience/Very Good
Label - A2155 Aulica
Comment - It sounds a bit like it's been recorded from a distance and it also does contain some hiss.
This (complete) show however is very good with all very loooong songs.
A very good performance of 'echoes' with alternative lyrics and an also very nice 'Atom Heart Mother'.
On 'Set The Controls...' there's a bit of 'print through' in the right channel
(obviously they used an 'old' tape and the previous recording wasn't entirely erased). .
Last performance of 'Astronomy Domine' until it's ressurection in 1994

Recording - Audience/Very Good/Excellent
Label - LP to cd transfer
Comment - Some lp clicks. Audience recording from a free open air show (Amstel Rock Festival).
Embryo has childrens sound and Echoes-like wailing.
Cymbaline is without the footsteps sequence but has some woman breathing instead.
There's also a bit of pictish ranting.
