Notes:
------
This recording comes from a 40 years old master tape and has never been circulated before.
It must have a few glitches from times to times, but it's a miracle that it was not
completely gone after all this time. In particular the song Cymbaline has some gaps,
but luckily I've been able to play it completly after many attemps since the deck
was often stopping the tape during that part. Sadly the very end of The Amazing Pudding
is cut because of another concert that was overtaped.

Big thanks to Gérard for digging out his tapes collection, and coming home with some of them,
and of course for taping this show at the time!

A soundboard recording also exists, as the show was recorded for French radio Europe 1's
Musicorama program. Many recodings based on various FM broadcasts are in circulation, however
this is the first time a complete audience tape surfaces and gives us the complete and correct
running order of all the songs.

Pink Floyd also played the same venue the day after, 24 January, but no recording of this
second performance is to be known. The taper did not attend the second show since he attended
(and recorded) The Nice at L'Olympia, Paris, that night. Sadly the very beginning of The Nice
recording was taped over the very end of 'The Amazing Pudding'.
Some parts between the songs may also be missing, since the recorder was stopped to save the tape.

Because of a low recording level, the original recordings had a terrible amount of hiss.
I reduced a big part of it, but there's still a quite noticable hiss on the final recording.
The right channel has also a lower volume than the left channel. I did some ajustement, but
I did not increased too much the right channel since it was increasing its hiss as well.
