Amougies Pop & Jazz Festival, Belgium

Transcribed by Phil Salathe

Tape cuts in at the end of tuning.

Roger: [The] next two things we're gonna do, we're gonna do together, and one of them is...a song off the soundtrack of a film called More, and it's called Green is the Colour --

Crowd applauds.

Roger: ...and the other thing is an instrumental we did some time ago, and it's called Careful With That Axe, Eugene.

Roger: (Off mike) Okay.

GitC starts right up; Dave sings "Envy is the bond" in his normal voice, rather than his usual falsetto.

In the intro to CWTA,E, someone near taper or on stage says "Aha!". Rog says four "carefuls" before, and two after, saying "Careful with that axe, Eugene", and then lets out longer-than-usual screams which are so loud that they drown out everything else. The song ends to enthusiastic applause, and the tape fades.
