Brixton Ace, London, England
Other acts performing at this event were Brillant and Urban Shakedown, formerly Basement 5.
The second part of this concert including Alice, Valentine, Anaconda, Body Electric, 1969 and Sister Ray was recorded from
or Carmina Burana.
A complete audience recording of the gig does exist as well and was traded on bootleg cassettes back in the days,
but is hard to find. This recording does also offer a very good sound quality but gives a different impression of the sound
as it - naturally - includes the noise from on stage, from around the venue and from the audience.
bootlegs would, however, undoubtedly reveal that their actual origin is in fact this mixing desk take.
A well-known Edritch quote from the gig (before 1969) audible in the above mentioned recordings is :
- "This is the last time we play this song. .... ever ....".
Note that the header of the second advert on the right side mentions that "All shows are being recorded for CH4".
This would have been wonderful, but to-day no such video recording has ever surfaced, nor is any information available
about such footage. Thanks for the lovely picture (and the info), though, to HL Forum member Dan.
Also special thanks to the contributor of the announcement poster of flyer on the left.
