Mighty Baby are one of the
best-loved bands to have emerged from Britain's late 1960s underground.
and this is the fullest live record of them in existence. Taped as they
opened for Quintessence at Malvern's Winter Gardens on Saturday February
20th 1971, the set finds the quintet poised between the driving
psychedelia of their 1969 debut and the more contemplative sound of
their second and final album, A Jug Of Love. It's rounded off by two
tracks recorded at Glastonbury in June of the same year, and comes
complete with a booklet featuring rare images and notes from band
members Ian Whiteman and Mike Evans, making it an essential artefact for
the Babe's many admirers.
