STRICTLY LIMITED TO 400 COPIES. The Eindhoven-based Mr. Albert Show may be considered one of the ultimate Dutch jam bands of the late sixties, combining elements from rhythm & blues, rock, soul and psychedelia. The five-piece, led by saxophone player Bertus Borgers (later a member of highly rated bands s.a. Sweet d'Buster, Golden Earring, Groove Express) was truly a sensation for anyone who witnessed one of their gigs in the period 1969-1973. The band recorded two albums, both of which now fetch high prices amongst international record collectors. This double-LP, pressed on 180-gram audiophile vinyl, features excellent sounding highlights (remastered from the original tapes!) from their farewell live-show, that took place in their hometown in 1973. Includes are renditions of band classics s.a. 'Electronic Baby' and 'Let It All Hang Out', as well as cover versions of 'Can't Find My Way Home' (Steve Winwood), the classic Beatles-song 'Things We Said Today' and the Stones-original 'Jumpin Jack Flash'. This release is presented in a great, heavy gatefold sleeve with artwork by well known cartoonist Joost Swarte, and including rare photos and liner notes by Wouter Bessels.
