"Calling Number 228"

Lineage: LP> Sony PS-LX250H> Sony STR-DE895 >Harman/Kardon CDR26 > EAC> SHN
Label: Man of Leisure Music (MoLM)

Disc One:

1. Atom Heart Mother
2. Tuning
3. Set the Controls For the Heart Of The Sun
4. One of These Days
5. Careful with that Axe, Eugene

Disc Two:

1. Echoes
2. A Saucerful of Secrets (encore)

This is one of the must-have dates from the 1972 tour. The band puts in great performances of their older, post-Syd and pre-DSotM classics.
In fact, I really don't recall any other 1972 dates when Eclipse was not performed. It seems the band played a single set, with Saucerful of Secrets as
the sole encore.

Sadly, there is a poorly edited cut towards the end of CWtAE. This is either due to a tape flip or was done to fit the music
on the album side.
