|Live album by Strawbs|
|Recorded||11 July 1970|
|Genre||Art rock, folk rock, progressive rock|
The band line-up had changed dramatically from that of the previous album, Dragonfly. Only founder-members Dave Cousins and Tony Hooper remained, double bass player Ron Chesterman and cellist Claire Deniz being replaced by rhythm section John Ford and Richard Hudson. Rick Wakeman also became a full-time member. Thus the band changed from being a folk quartet to a rock quintet.
The concert was instrumental in bringing Rick Wakeman's virtuosity to the attention of the music media, who prophesied super-stardom for the keyboard player.
Although this album was recorded live, none of the tracks on the original vinyl pressing were released on any studio album except for "Where is This Dream of Your Youth", originally released as a track on Strawbs.
