Dave Arbus (violin, flute, saxophone), Jim Roche (guitar), David Jack (vocals, bass), Jeff Allen (drums).

"East of Eden from Bristol in England played elaborate progressive rock with saxophone, violin, and flute. Their only hit, "Jig-a-jig", is not typical for their music. The band can look back on a history of eleven long-players, not counting the many compilations.

On Thursday, 22nd October 1970, the group performed in the Gruga Hall at the third Essen Pop & Blues Festival. The event was recorded semi-professionally by the promoters. The recordings were mastered now in a first-class sound studio with great effort and care. The sound, however, is naturally not as good as that of the studio LPs.

The booklet contains a long band history in German and English, a detailed discography, numerous cover and label repros, many infos about the festival as well as a personal retrospective report by Dave Arbus. A must for collectors. It is the first legitimate release of an East of Eden live recording."
