About The Album

A bootleg on the Highland label, number HL 216#GG2. This was rereleased officially in 2001 on the Glass House Recordings label (UK). It was recorded live at "Hempstead, New York, 7/3/1976" at the Calderone Concert Hall, not far from the Ultrasonic Recording Studios were Ultrasonic 75 was recorded.

A fan reports that "this was a radio broadcast by WLIR-FM. The show took place on the Eve of the US Bicentennial celebration, and I was fortunate enought to have been in attendance that night. Derek gave a few humorous intros that referenced the American Revolution, the Boston Tea Party, etc."

Reportedly the sound quality is "rather good, but sometimes electric noises are heard."
