Comments: This is indeed from the French radio broadcast of St. Ouen 12/01/72. It's an improvement on my tape copy, but still obviously a few generations out, with noticeable hiss. The last couple minutes of "Childhood's End" has painful pitch problems, but overall the disc is very enjoyable and stands up to repeated listens.

Performance-wise, high points are a tight and lively OOTD and a very solid CWTAE. The latter starts out pretty standard, but the post-scream wind-down has some exceptionally flavorful interplay from Dave and Rick.

Childhood's End may be the first live performance of the song, and it's easily the best of the half-dozen I've heard.
