In addition  to the complete audience recording for this show, Empress Valley  released the classic vinyl LP No Quarter. The original tapes  perished in a fire, along with a lot of the vinyl copies, when the  garage lock-up where they were stored burnt down. However Empress  Valley have tracked down the original acetates, taken from the master  tapes, and released them on 2CDs. This contains the first half of the  show, as far as Bron-yr-Aur Stomp. The CDs are housed in a matt card  gatefold slipcase, and the original Red Devil label vinyl cover is  used on the front. The sound quality is near excellent stereo, and the  snaps, crackles and pops inherent on an acetate have been digitally  removed. In the booklet it is revealed that Empress Valley had  originally planned to release this night only as a 6CD set, the four  audience CDs plus the acetate on 2CDs. It would have been better to  have released it seperately rather than include it in this box set.  However it is a very important addition to the Earls Court catalogue
Liner  Notes from the Cover:  In the late Seventies The Master  Tapes Made The Original Vinyl Were destroyed By Fire At The Warehouse  With All Stock. Fortunately, The Original Acetate For The Vinyl Did  Survive! This Is Why The Master Tape Never Exists Today. We Thank You  Very Much For The Great Discovery! Recording Equipments: Sony 152SD  Taperecorder & Two Sony Microphones
