Recorded live at Saint Paul de Vence, France, 3/5 August 1970.

Silk-screened gatefold cover with glued in insert. Glossy black and gold screen print on silver coated white cardboard. Caused by the inaccuracy of the silkscreen printing method there are different degrees of how the golden paint covers the silver background. On the inner side it has pasted on silk screen printed inserts of red paper with golden print and blue paper with silver print.
