Fillmore East, New York, USA

My tape cuts right into very start of AD. Upper voice is very out of
tune during first verse, lower voice can't really be heard. Midway
through loud section after second verse, bass and keyboards seem to cut
out. They return after 20-30 seconds, a bit before the quiet part that
follows; guitar and drums keep going the whole time. REALLY loud
feedback at the start of the "Lime and limpid green" coda. Applause,
whistling at end.
Roger: Thank you.
Probable tape cut.
Roger: We...really have just got to find out why all the
equipment on this side of the stage keeps stopping...it's a bit boring.
Pause -- probably another tape cut -- then scattered applause,
probably after an introduction to GitC/CWTAE. A bit of scuffling about
with the mic at the start of GitC. In CWTAE, it sounds like the PA cuts
out again, because at the end of Roger's first scream the bass,
keyboards and vocals cut out, then they come back and he does a second
short scream, then after a few seconds the guitar solo begins, then it
sounds like the PA cuts out again, as DG's scat vocals disappear,
leaving again only guitar and drums, until 20-30 seconds later
keyboards, then bass return. Then a minute or two later it happens
AGAIN! This time it sounds like Nick stops, actually, and it's just
guitar playing for quite a while. Within a minute or so the other three
instruments straggle back in and they finish the song. Applause at end.
Roger: Thank you.
Tape cuts into guitar solo in middle G minor section of AHM without
horns. The 'In the Flesh' book has two shows for that day, but only has
a setlist for the late show, listing AHM with horns as the encore. If
ITF is correct, then perhaps this could be the early show. I'm pretty
sure about the date and venue regardless, because it jives perfectly
with Roger Waters's comments about power failures a couple weeks later
at Pepperland 17oct70.
Applause at end of AHM, tape cuts.
Brief pause, then gong intro to StCftHotS starts. Small edit during
the beginning, after gong -- it jumps to right before the first verse,
during which the taper fumbles with the mic. Tape fades out and in,
cutting out a few seconds, at the song's climax. Applause right after
that. Odd 'shuck' noises in taper's mic after "making the shape" line.
Applause at end.
Roger?: Thank you.
Tuning, indecipherable whispering near taper, then another tape cut.
1-2 second pause, then FOS kicks in, a very early version. Weird
dropout after first line "...sky is falling". Gilmour sings "distant
bells...smells so sweet" line too early, then sings it again in
right place. Rog hits big wrong note at second chorus. There's no second
jam section -- Dm, Dm, E7#9, A7#9 for musicians -- as in later
performances, but rather the song goes back into the intro. On the
last verse, DG sings something like "New mown grass smells [oh no,
mistake], last sunlight disappears." It's probably not "Oh no,
mistake", but it's something like that. At end, applause, immediate tape
