East of Eden from Bristol in England played elaborate progressive rock with saxophone, violin, and flute. Their only hit, 'Jig-a-jig', ist not typical for their music. The band can look back on a history of eleven long-players, not counted the many compilations. On Tuesday, 22nd October 1970, the group performed in the Gruga hall at the third Essen Pop & Blues Festival. The event was recorded semi-professionally by the promoters. The recordings were mastered now in a first-class sound studio with great effort and care. The sound, however, is naturally not as good as that of the studio LPs. The 32-page booklet contains a long band history in German and English, a detailed discography, numerous cover repros as well as a personal retrospective report by Dave Arbus. A must for collectors. It is the first legitimate release of an East of Eden live recording.
Dave Arbus (electric violin, flute, saxophone, trumpet), Ron Caines (alto saxophone), Geoff Nicholson (guitar, vocals), Steve York (bass guitar), Dave Dufort (percussion), Jeff Allen (drums), Geoff Britton (drums), Joe O'Donnell (violin), Jim Roche (guitar), David Jack (bass)
