    Recording: Sound-board and Audience
    Comments: This is a solo acoustic / electric PT show. Interesting here is that he
    plays a tape on stage of one of his home demos for My Generation. The London
    Roundhouse songs on this are also on the vinyl boot Obscure & Oblique (LP)
    (PT ZST)
    and Wild Action (CD) (Fire Power FP-028). This LP came with a deluxe
    black & white cover featuring a picture of a young PT with a round white & red stick-
    er in the top left cornerwhich states; "Includes P.T. Commercial Single". The "comm-
    ercial single" was a 45 rpm boot that came with the LP. Side A contains a live PT
    version of Tim Hardin's "If I Were A Carpenter" & Side B features a demo version of
    Cole Porter's "Begin The Beguine" (one of Meher Baba's favorite tunes). It came in a
    pink sleeve with a picture of Pete sitting in a chair in his studio playing a guitar. Cat-
    alogue # was Penguin Records - EGG 3 1/2. The back cover contains the track list-
    ing and features a pic of PT ca. 1973 and is identical to Rough Boy (LP) (Music Of
