Sleeve Notes

The sleeve notes to this album are in German, below is a portion of a very loose translation.

image "This LP is the 'only' live recording of the 'classic' Sands Family." This refers to the original, "groundbreaking" line up, with the gifted Eugene Sands. These recordings were made during a three-day period in mid-1974, in Germany. The first two days were recorded in the studio and released as The First & Second Day (Autogram-FLLP 501 LP). The "third day" was a live recording at the "legendary" Ührigens German folk club, recorded by one of the first mobile studios in Germany at Harsewinkelgasse 19-20 in Münster.

Sadly, Eugene "Dino" Sands was killed in an automobile accident on autobahn near Bremen, Germany on November 10, 1975, at the age of 21.
