2CD Stamping Ground Włochy

2 CD "Stamping Ground Festival"
          Aulica, A 2102/1/2, 1990, Italy

The First release of unofficial recordings of the Stamping Ground Festival, Karlingen, Rotterdam, Netherlands, which was held on June, 26.06-28.1970. All later releases a (Armando, Akarma,  Gonzo) are based on this audio recordings. On the album cover the day of the Festival is incorrect (June, 29-30.)

East of Eden' songs : "
The Sun of East" (R.Caines-G.Nicholson)
                                "Irish Theme(Trad.)

East of Eden didn't play at this Festival, because the drummer suddenly fell ill.
"The Sun of East", in fact "No time" and "To Mrs V", and "Irish Theme", in fact "Traditional" or "Love you part-2, are songs taken from DLP "The Palms".

CD and MC were integral part of  "Il Dizionario del Rock-miti di ierie edi oggi". Each volumne of the dicionary contains a magazine with CD or MC.  The notice of this publ;ication in the site Bootlegs is a bit problematic, because Armando Curcio E. has been on the market for many years .      Armando Curcio Editore

The Record contains live recordings. On the album cover is wrong band's line-up: Arbus , Caines, Nicholson, Dufont, York. The correct band's line-up: Arbus, Allen, Jack, Roche.
Date and place of the gig is unknown. In my opinion, recordings from this LP are an abridged version of the recordings from DLP "The Palms" (1971)

The Records contains live recordings. On the album cover is no information regerding the date, venue and band's line-up. There are two concepts of the place and date of the gig:
1./Audimax, Hamburg. Germany, year:  1971  or 2./Norwich, England year: 1971.
In my opinion the band's line-up: D.
Arbus, J.Allen, D.Jack,  J.Roche.
The correct titles of the songs played by the band:
Nymphenburger, Ramadhan, Here comes the day, No time, To Mr V, Crazy Daisy, Nymphenburger, 
Jig a Jig, Jig a Jig reprise or Traditional.

It was first released in form of MP3/CDr/Net in 2008.
Music stuff is identical in both CDRs.

 The First two CDRs
* / ** consists of the two parts:

- the first CDR called  "
East of Eden Radio 1 in Concert" contains the following tracks::

Waterways", 2."Moth", 3."In the snow for a blow", 4."Xhorkham".
  In fact, the tracks are: 1."
Waterways", 2."Moth", 3."No time/To Mrs V"
  4. "

 The recordings are probably from the second half of 1970 (probably - Top Gear BBC1 /John Peel recorded on 11.08.1970 and radio broadcast on 12.09.1970 and rebroadcast on 21.11.1970) 
or in the first half of 1971. The band's line-up D.Arbus, D.Jack, J.Allen and A.Sneddon or J.Roche
