Comments: This is a very clean recording. If you are looking for a good version of the 1st show on April 29, 1970 this is the one to look for. It is far better than any other I have heard. Less audience noise plus the interaction that Roger has with the audience is left intact. Roger is very communicable with the crowd during this show. - ERIC O.

Very plain white packaging, says that it is Vol 1. Gets a little bass distortion from time to time. Before Atom Heart Mother, DG says "when we're in England, we're making a new album, at the moment, and this thing we're going to play is going to be one side of it." Instruments are tuned, then "Also we're taking a break when we finish this, it seems to have gone very quickly this evening, maybe we've been playing really fast. Anyway we are, don't go away when we leave the stage we are coing back, it won't be very long. Ready?" Then AHM begins with airplane engine noises.

Some years ago, "Oil Well" company bought out "Swingin' Pig Records". Then, several "new" RoIOs appeared, under the "Oil Well" label, but some of them were in fact digital copies of old "Swingin' Pig" RoIOs. Some examples: "Echoes" is a reissue of "One Of These Days", "Green Is The Color" is a reissue of "Amsterdam 69", "Black Wizard" and "White Witch" are a reissue of "Live In Montreux".

This one is the perfect copy of "Live At Winterland", disc one! The timings are exacly the same. Even the date on the sleeve (21 Oct 1970) is the same wrong date as on the "Live At Winterland" RoIO!

So, this is the April 29, 1970 show at San Francisco's Fillmore West. This is *not* the afternoon show at KQED TV studios that happened the same day (that TV show was performed without audience). - MARC-OLIVIER
