Berlin, Germany 1973

One of the more strange recordings of the band ever to surface.   This was recorded on the last of  three dates in a row the band had to play as a four piece unit due to the absence of Mick Box.   Originally the tape was circulated with the wrong date of February 21st but we have been informed that was incorrect.  

We wonder if Circle Of Hands wasn't played, not recorded or omitted from the recording all together.  Tears In My Eyes ends normally and Look At Yourself starts right up with the clapping but it seems to go into the song way too fast.  No in-between song chatter or anything.  Other then leaving out Circle Of Hands, this recording is right in line with the normal Live 73 set list and song order.   Also the Rock N' Roll Medley is incomplete as well, plus it seems either this is the point when the band speeded up the renditions of the this part (which we know was the case with other official releases) or the tape speed is incorrect.  A search for other sources may help answer these questions, but it appears to be a short set to us.
