TAKRL says: “Our cover says it’s from Winterland. It’s from Earl Warren Showground’s in Santa Barbara. Tape from Magic Patchbay, edited by same. First B.F. issue.”

A reviewer wrote: “This boot has reasonable fidelity, and a mediocre mix, about what you would expect from someone recording from the audience with decent seats. Included are great live versions of their standards, featuring Clapton’s inimitable guitar and Winwood on Fender Rhodes. The version of “Crossroads” is radically different than Cream’s version, and the set also includes their non-LP cover of “Means to an End”. All in all, not bad for a boot. Grades: 1 A-, 2 B+’s, 2 B’s, and a B-.”

The following seems to be the same recording: Title: Noblesse Oblige (Blind Fate).
Label: Mid Valley Records. Catalog#: Mid Valley 289.

Venue/date: Santa Barbara Ca 8/16/1969 .
Recording: Sourced directly from the master tape and then nicely tweaked by Mid Valley, this is the ultimate expression of this recording and essential listening for any true fan. As usual, the packaging presented with the release is as exceptional as the audio quality, and a joy to behold. Recommended.
