2 non-album tracks 1 Unrecorded songs 1 Gary Brooker solo songs
1 Non-original song Nice gig in a nice venue; very full but perhaps not quite to the 1,100 capacity. Standing audience included Jens Hofman (Ledreborg supremo) and one fan who had come all the way from Argentina: Patricio Duran, pictured sitting patiently waiting next to the merchandise. Photographer Thomas Raa Olsen suggested the caption below:

Hey Bartender, pour me a drink

and not a small one;> cause Iím sitting here to think

Need to reflect what I have done

Anyway Ė  in Denmark, Iím not the only one!
