|From the back cover: "By the turn of the 70's Fleetwood Mac were on a roll, having established themselves as headliners in the United States via repeated touring. In Feb '70 they tapes three consecutive nights at the Boston Tea Party with the view to rush-releasing a live album: the band played out of their skins and the LP would doubtless have been a killer. But within just weeks the mercurial Peter Green - their founder, leader & frontman - had sensationally announced his decision to quit, and the project was shelved. Some of the material eventually crept out on a couple of mid-80's albums, Jumping At Shadows and a double-LP Roots - The Original Fleetwood Mac Live in Concert. However, these were poorly-compiled affairs, with patchy sound quality, a problem which worsened steadily with subsequent reissue packages. Following the recent discovery of the original 8-track master tapes they have all now been remixed & remastered. A further nine previously unissued performances were also found, and the material has been extensively re-compiled to take into consideration the original set sequencings. This, the second edition in a 3-CD set which finally brings these devastating performances to life, includes a previously-unheard jam which features Joe Walsh, at that time the guitarist with The James Gang, who opened for Fleetwood Mac no these memorable gigs."|
