This is a historic show for many reasons. The first is that this is the last gig of the 1971 tour, this date was a replacement date for the concert that was originally schedeuled on October 30th at the Music Hall in Cincinnati. A couple more reasons (and these are the good ones) are that this performance marks the last time the band ever performs 2 songs which had been staples of their setlist for quite some time, one song being The Embryo and the other one being Cymbaline.
The Embryo contained here is the longest version to have ever been recorded, lasting about 26 minutes... incredible!!! The band is quite hot this night too and therefore all the songs are performed very well in my opinion.
This is the 1st recorder for this date and unfortunately it is not complete, missing some of Echoes and all of the encore, Blues. This is, however, the better sounding of the 2 recorders for this date a deserves a very nice EX rating. It's something special when you get all these goodies in one RoIO, please enjoy responsibly!
