  • Fleetwood Mac Boeblingen, Sporthalle March 26, 1970 Lineage: master tapes>cassette (speed corrected, tracks sequence corrected)>CD-R>EAC>FLAC>DIMe>DIME>You! Sound quality: 3-4 out of 6/vg+ The recording has been assembled from two different tapes that were done by different tapers. The first's tape contained the largest bulk of the show but obviously ran out and did't capture the last number (a medley of "Twist & Shout and The Beatles' "Come Together"); the second taper's recording is a bit inferior (and only partial, IIRC), but does come with Mac's last number, so we added this portion. I personally knew the first taper and you can even hear him yell "Hinsetzen!" (="sit down!") during "Albatross". Wolfgang Vault's recent "release of The Mac's complete April 24, 1970 London Roundhouse show in excellent quality made me think for a while an upload of this show may be somewhat obsolete. However, we get to hear a very interersting set with the not-so-often played "Fighting For Madge" and the aforementioned Beatles cover. Aside of that the band and Peter were simply on the top of their game on their last tour. Interestingly, you don't hear any inferior playing from Greeny's end at this point which one might have expected. Most of you may have heard of Green's often-quoted "Munich incident" that seems to have affected his personality for good. This in fact had just happened on this very tour after a show at the Cirkus Krone building in Munich on March 23, 1970. Green was somewhat "kidnapped" by members of a then well-known commune named "Highfish"; Green obviously was easily caught because one of them was known model and rock celebrity groupie Uschi Obermaier who sure looked just gorgeous, back then. He was taken to the commune's home, a castle outside Munich and given some obviously too heavy LSD that caused a trip that he would never entirely recover from. As said above, Peter's "crash" luckly didn't affect this show here - nor the remaining ones on the tour as recordings of the April 1, Stockholm and the April 24, Roundhouse shows clearly reveal - it rather seems the drug caused more of a long-term effect on him. I'd like to thank my long time and good friend Hans-Guenther for providing the off-the-master tapes, for his speed and track sequence correction (on circulating cassette copies tracks were switched to fit on the tape sides), polishing the recording, and finally for the cover; the front depicts the actual tour poster, BTW. This show has never been circulated in this best possible condition. Enjoy - and Mac ahoy! Th:-)mas
