November 13th can be the correct day, but here on base we write what's on release, so 1988's LP title must be the one given by company: Oude-Ahoy Hallen, Rotterdam, October 12, 1967

OK, first it has to be said that this IS a rough recording, no question about that. However, given that this was recorded in what seems like another century (well, on second thought it WAS) it is not at all a bad recording. In the days of this performance tiny digital recording devices to hide easily wasn't invented yet, so most likely someone dragged a huge thing to this show. And, what they captured is pretty much quintessential early Floyd with Barrett. Overall, it is hard to hear the lyrics, but then again, early Floyd live was a different thing from Floyd in the studio. Arnold Layne and See Emily Play were both singles, and largely completely different from what they played live. This seems to be a very typical live show, with lots of long instrumental improvisations. Very excentric, and what else would you expect from a band fronted by the late grate Syd Barrett?
I had heard this maybe a decade ago, and never really enjoyed it at the time. Then I got hold of a copy of this just a while ago together with the Starclub Phyco CD, and to my surprise actually enjoyed both of them. Maybe this revivial was linked also to 1) having trained my ears for yet another decade, and 2) the recent Happening at the Golden Circle Swedish show again opening my eyes to this era from a live perspective.
Anyway, I think this is very well worth owning as well as listening to sometimes. It certainly provides you with a unique insight into what Floyd was like in those early days.
