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 12-page deluxe insert in LP size contains a long band history in German and English, a detailed discography, numerous cover and label repros, a gig list, many informations about the festival as well as a personal retrospective report by Dave Arbus. Comes in deluxe gatefold cover. A must for collectors. It is the first legitimate release of an East of Eden live recording.

Also available: ESSEN 1970 (CD).
