Circulated as the silver disc bootleg titled Magic Night.  One of the most talked about shows in the history of Uriah Heep, before a reported 100,000 in attendance the show cuts short (listen to the Love Machine sound file) after Lee was hit in the groin by an orange tossed on stage.  When asked who was doing all the yelling at the end Lee responded, "That was Mick, I was bent over going ohhhhhh!"  Mick as well backed up the story and each remembered the show well.
