Today sees the release of a special live performance by Fotheringay that was recorded at Grugahalle in Essen, Germany, on 23rd October 1970. Fotheringay performed as part of a large indoor festival that included many notable bands such as Supertramp, T. Rex, and Kraftwerk to name a few. The concert tapes have been elaborately re-mastered by Fotheringay guitarist Jerry Donahue who got the most out of the vintage recording. This performance was recorded semi-professionally by the festival host, and stands out as one of the best live performances ever captured of this short-lived but amazing band.

,,Fans kommen jedoch in den Genuss einer gut aufspielenden Combo, die in erster Linie Songs der beiden Studio-Alben bringt: die von Denny geschriebenen wunderschönen Balladen “The Sea” und “Nothing More”, die rockig arrangierten Folktraditionals “Gypsy Davey” und “Eppie Moray” sowie ungewöhnliche Coverversionen von Dylan (“Too Much Of Nothing”), Gordon Lightfoot (“The Way I Feel”) und Chuck Berrys (!) “Memphis, Tennessee”."
