Amsterdam 1970: One of a handful of concerts performed in support of the Bridge Over Troubled Water album. A lively performance, with many "stripped down" renditions of BOTW material. An excited audience creates an ideal environment for Paul and Art to ad lib witty intros to the songs. The recording is quite nice, with a few dropouts, but definitely soundboard. Art has some problems with his microphone in the beginning, but they are quickly remedied.

Haarlem 1966: A TV appearance featuring Paul in his "hip-and-cool" guise and Art as his usual self. The songs are performed well, but they are quick and to-the-point, likely due to time constraints from the TV show's producer. The recording quality is good, but not as pristine as the 1970 show.
