Volume 1, released as FC 016 ca. 1982
Source: Back cover states “Recorded live at Winterland 10/12/79” but this is way off. The real source is the 5 September 1971 KSAN FM broadcast from the Pacific High Studios in San Francisco, a selection of tracks from this was first released in 1974 by Ken on his TMOQ-2 (Belfast Cowboy TMOQ 73035) and Highway Hi-Fi (Van The Man HHCER 109) bootleg labels. That post can be found by clicking here.
It is obvious that the Flying Horses producers were a bit ‘in the dark’ regarding the actual song titles, as several were just made up. I have corrected them as much as possible.
Side 1: Into The Mystic (6:50)/ Que Sera Sera – Hound Dog (3:15) / Just Like A Woman (9:00)
