Imperial College Great Hall, London. May 12th 1972
This performance receives praise from the critics despite an initial apprehension at seeing the band without Jim Morrison. Review after review praises the show as a triumph for the band, applauding their exuberant energy. The band is in good spirits and their elevated mood comes through in the music. The encore "Hoochie Coochie Man," which incorporates lyrics from "Close to You," is a solid version reminiscent of the days when Jim Morrison would ad lib verses from different songs.
NB: I had a copy of the gig on tape in the 70s. It wasn't much of a recording as it was pretty low quality and hard to make out anything.
