"Ltd. Edition 180g vinyl LP. Newly discovered recording, never previously available. In January 1971 legendary Minneapolis psychedelic band the C A Quintet, creators of one of the most sought-after and celebrated underground albums of the '60s, Trip Thru Hell, decided to call it a day and play one final swan-song at Lake Pepin High School. Three tracks from this gig were hastily issued by the band in the early '80s in response to a bootleg of the Trip Thru Hell LP that had then recently surfaced. Whilst many thought then that this was the last that would ever be heard of the band again, earlier this year two surprising events happened -- 1, the original master-tape of the gig was discovered. 2, it was found to contain material far stronger than that on the old live album and also to include previously unheard original material. The band perform storming versions of '60s classics like 'Born To Be Wild' and 'Badge' alongside originals '4am In New York City' and the closing number 'China Clipper' -- the final song ever performed by the C A Quintet. This will be a limited edition one-off custom pressing featuring new liner notes specially written for this edition by band founder and leader Ken Erwin who also supervised the remastering of these recordings."
