High Time [no label, 1CD]

Live in Rome, Italy, May 6, 1968; London, May 12, 1969. Vinyl rip.

This was just uploaded on the Dime site so a big thank you to Doinker for sharing the lossless tracks.

This is what Doinker said:

Continuing my never-to-be-quenched thirst for vinyl, here’s a great offering from the European anti-CD label Sodium Haze Records. Pressed in perhaps batches of 50-100 pieces (correct me if I’m wrong there), your chances of snagging one are very limited… you’d better not blink or it will go away.

Side One features three tunes from the “Rome Goes Pop! program(me): Astronomie Domine, Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun, and Interstellar Overdrive. The first two tracks are sourced from a VPRO-FM radio rebroadcast on 1988-04-29. The third track is an audio rip from the television broadcast on ARD TV (West Germany) from 1968-05-18. The quality is simply stunning.

Side Two is pre-FM sourced from the program(me) John Peel’s Night Ride: Granchester Meadows (Daybreak), Cymbaline (Nightmare), Green Is The Colour (The Beginning/Beset By Creatures Of The Deep), and The Narrow Way [with vocals]. For those of you unfamiliar with the extra titles, these tracks were performed on the road during 1969 as part of a concept piece “The Man and The Journey”. The versions presented here are notable for their differences from the normal concert routine.

Thanks also to chadom for the artwork. (Until someone offers higher quality artwork, this is what is currently available).
