Tape starts with Ricks Turkish Delight organ noodling, which leads
into Astronomy Domine.
Roger: This is from our last LP, Ummagumma, and it's called CWTAE.
(Nice version of Axe--no Green is the Color--with some extended and
repeated screaming near the end. Then comes Cymbaline.
Polite applause follows.
Roger: Thank you.
Roger: This is a new song, it's about an Embryo.
Then Roger is silent, as if he's waiting for the audience to applaud
or cheer... the audience doesn't. After The Embryo....
Roger: This is an instrumental one. It's the first of a few we
made, and it's called Interstellar Overdrive.
There's either a tape cut here, or the audience is very quiet while
the band waits to start.
Roger: Thank you, this is another song. It's called Set The
Control For The Heart of the Sun.
Polite applause follows, and off we go , an evil version of STCFTHOTS
follows, where Roger whispers the "the heart of the sun'' repeated
phrase with a venomous voice .. Ahhhhhhhhhhh .. song ends and we get to
the highlight of the tape.
Roger: Are you ready Rick? Richard? ... Richard? ... (urgent
whisper) Richard? Are you ready???
Rick hits a few notes on his organ, but doesn't answer.
Roger: Are you ready? Rick? ... Rick? Richard!?
Rick hits a couple of notes on the piano.
Roger: Richard .. are you ready?
Rick hits the organ.
Roars of laughter from the audience, followed by loud applause drum
roll from Nick Mason some more laughter.
Roger: (in Basil Fawlty voice) OK.
And the band launches into a rawking version of TUP (a.k.a. AHM.)
Roger: (in Basil Fawlty voice) OK .
And the band launches into a rawking version of TUP--The Untitled
Piece-- aka as TAP and AHM.
Roger: Thank you... good night.
After that the Blues encore is played, but unfortunately the tape
cuts before the song is finished.
