"Digitally remastered and expanded three CD set featuring an extended version of this legendary 1972 concert experience that helped to catapult the careers of Man and Hawkwind. The Greasy Truckers Party took place at The Roundhouse, London on February 13th, 1972 in front of an audience of more than 2000. The party was seen as the final gathering of freaks, hippies and anarchists. The concert bill also featured the under-rated band Brinsley Schwarz (featuring Nick Lowe and future Rumour members Bob Andrews and Brinsley Schwarz), pioneers of the Pub Rock genre and freak extraordinaire Magic Michael. The concert was staged to raise funds for the Greasy Truckers organization, who raised funds for various local causes such as homelessness, advice on dealing with being busted for possession of cannabis and other mind altering substances and other social issues. Disc One features five tracks from Man. Disc Two features 16 from Brinsley Schwarz and one from Magic Michael. Disc Three contains 12 songs from Hawkwind."
