More information: Barclay James Harvest’s first live album was designed to draw a line under one stage in the band’s history, being in effect, a live “best of” album. Approval had to be given by EMI to include songs like “Mockingbird”, and this was written into the deal arranged between EMI and Polydor when BJH switched labels. Unfortunately, the Mellotron went haywire, ruining an otherwise excellent performance, so the Mellotron parts, and a few extra vocal harmonies, were re-recorded and dubbed later.

From listening to an original recording of the London show, it is possible to say with some degree of certainty that the majority of songs are from the London show, with the Liverpool recordings being 'Negative Earth', 'She Said' and, possibly, 'Paper Wings'. The album became BJH’s first UK chart entry, reaching number 40.
