Recorded January 4, 1970 at Fairfield Hall, Croydon, England, this was the first show performed by the short lived 1970 quintet version of the band and is taken from the same concert as “Facelift” on Third.

Noisette features the rest of the concert, & showcases a band in transition from their earlier psychedelic/ progressive sound towards the jazz rock sound of Third & Fourth. It features the quintet performing versions of material from their 1st two albums as well as material not available on their studio albums.

Mastered directly off of the 50 year old 15ips master tapes, this release boasts superb live sound for the time period, & includes rare, unseen photos and liner notes by Aymeric Leroy.
