Whatever the case, this blows the Four Symbols label's copy away that I have. The Four Symbols copy, seemingly called "The Playhouse" due to the wrong date, city, and venue on the artwork, is a lot more dull and missing the high end frequencies in its sound. It doesn't sound too good when compared to this Eddie Edwards remastered source. And he likely used at least somewhere in the project parts of whichever source the Four Symbols label is using Since the sources are not being mentioned or easily found by me right now, I cannot truly do too much comparing without a much more in depth (and time consuming) comparison. This remaster by Edwards sounds the best out of what I've heard no matter what the sources are!

There is a very low resolution ticket image from the concert in the folder with the artwork. It seems the recording, or at least the Four Symbols copy and another one or two like it, thought this was the Glasgow, Scottland show from 1972-12-03. Their artwork throws many people off since it is wrong (including myself in the past). In fact, at this time there is no recording of the first night's 1972-12-03 Glasgow show known to exist. I uploaded the 1972-12-04 Glasgow show from the second night on 12/4. But this Eddie Edwards project has correct information and artwork for the 1972-12-08 date and can be relied on for accuracy. You might remember this in case you come across a show listed at the Glasgow first night show that doesn't seem to exist and is a mistake.
I hope you enjoy the show...
