About this release

Voiceprint – VP345CD(UK)

Recorded on 31st January 1970 in Het Turfschip, Breda, Netherlands

Re-released as double-vinyl album "Live At Het Turfschip, Netherlands, 31 January 1970" in 2012 by Vinyl Lovers – 901240 (alternate cover)

Recorded live in Breda, Netherlands in January of 1970, this double LP represents the only existing recording of a very rare and short-lived quintet version of the band. Sax/ flute player Lyn Dobson was the fifth member here, left over from the band’s days as a septet. Just three months later Dobson would move on, leaving the classic Ratledge-Dean-Hopper-Wyatt line-up in place. Dobson’s contributions to a 22-minute long version of Hopper’s “Facelift” as well as “Backwards” are of particular interest here, as is a tentative version of “Out-Bloody-Rageous”, which was still a work in progress at this stage.
