This is an instrumental edit of most of the big electric jam sequence of a great show that only exists as an audience recording.
The uncut sequence is 56 minutes. This 39-minute version edits out a drum solo and all the vocals from “Good Lovin’,” “Alligator,” “Not Fade Away,” and “Caution.” The only vocals that remain are on “Goin’ Down the Road.”
All the band’s original segues between songs remain, except for a fake edit to get from the “NFA” reprise to “Caution.”
If you have enjoyed Save Your Face’s adventures into song-free improvisation from other eras, here’s a new one to try – Fall 1970 Dead out in the wide open spaces for 40 minutes straight.
And if you are put off by the audience sonics of this era, you may find that the removal of vocals makes them work better.
39-minute mp3 file zipped up here. Instrumental unless otherwise noted.
