It is not
very common to review a soundboard recording that hasn t come out in the
underground market not even in professional cdr form, but here we have one from
Alvin lee with
tour opened in Italy on the
26th of October in Torino and this recording presents the concert
that happened in Firenze. A recording of the
concert was available and actually released on Live in Firenze by Sly Dog
Records from Canada
on a single disc lacking the last number: it was called soundboard but it was
actually the same as Playing Blues and Boogie (Breakdown 485 A/B) which had an
excellent audience recording on. The line up was Alvin Lee with Mick Taylor on
guitar alongside Calvin Fuzzy Samuels on bass and Tom Compton on drums.
actually 5 versions of this show, version 1 & 2 audience recording both
running about 4,55% slower, version three that was ain incomplete soundboard
version, presenting the tracks in wrong order and missing Choo Choo Mama and
not Writing You A Letter as stated on cover, almost the same as version 5 which
was Live in Firenze and version 4, the complete soundboard which is this. The
transitions between tracks here has been reworked, deleting the little gap
present at the beginning of Going Home at 5.05 and the end of Disc Two was
upgraded by adding a fade in/out.
