- VERY fine, crisp, lovely stereo AUD. Check samples for validation, illumination & enlightenment. 
- WARNING: Prepare to be astounded, astonished, flabbergasted, dazzled & thunderstruck! 
- Warts: Most dullspots, dropouts & volume fluctuations were fixed, but surely missed some.
- Includes the entire "The Miraculous Hump Returns From The Moon" album played live. 
-Other act on the bill, both 1st & 2nd sets - "Stuart Little Band" from Stockton, CA. (Anyone have live tapes by them?).
- "Wham Bam, I'm A Smoky Ham" is an unissued Sopwith Camel song ('an astrological number').
