Youngstown 1972

The exact date of this show is now known of this recording in support of Cactus.  This audience recording isn't very strong but it is better than the Columbia show and has essentially the same set list.

We find it strange that with a set under an hour in length that Heep spent one third of that time improvising.  Three albums were already released at this point so as many as four more songs could have been included during the time allotment.   Maybe it was the time period and what was customary for bands at this point, but still it appears they could have taken more advantage of what was given.
