Manchester College of Commerce 2nd May 1969

56 minutes, stereo soundboard recordings.

The album's title [Ummagumma] supposedly comes from a Cambridge slang word for sex, commonly used by one of Pink Floyd's friends and occasional roadie, Iain ‛‛Imo’’ Moore who would joke ‘Am I gunna have sex tonight?!’
However, some band members have since stated that the word was ‛‛totally made up and means nothing at all’’.
In footage of the band rehearsing for a Royal Albert Hall appearance in 1969, one of the band members can be heard, off camera, quietly chanting the word ‛‛ummagumma’’.

CD label features a full, blank (except this release's title "Mothers Secrets") replica of the Harvest logo, but does not claim to BE on Harvest Records.

Using SonicVisualizer or other audio software it can be seen that this release is sourced from mp3 files (or at least the copy I have). Still sounds nice, though.
