I've always wondered if the recording of this (un)famous show is complete or not. I mean the most complete version. On Bob's website I read that there are some sources stating that Keep Yourself Alive, Hangman and Stone Cold Crazy were performed at the show. DJ Alan Black pointed out that the band wouldn't be doing Keep Yourself Alive. But what about Hangman and Stone Cold Crazy? Could they be performed? Seriously, I doubt, but anything could happen. Having five audience recordings from other 1973 gigs, we are indeed sure that the band played Hangman at each of them. This could mean that Hangman was performed at the Golders Green show. What about Stone Cold Crazy, it was first performed in late October 1974 (the first known/heard performance), as we know, and so it's pointless to decide it was performed at Golders Green. There's also a rumour that See What A Fool I've Been was actually part of the encore, performed after Liar. It means it could be placed a few songs earlier on the actual recording. But anyway, there are only just rumours.
I would be interested to hear your opinions folks.

I think SWAFIB and Hangman might have been performed, but I don't think Stone Cold Crazy was. It would be awesome if they all were, and a HQ recording pops up.

You can always dream!

The EMI Japan release In The Mirror Again has See What a Fool but none of the other tracks on it.

Here's a link to a bootleg site which has all the tracks from the Hippendrome gig, including SWAFIB. Hope this helps http://bigozine2.com/roio/?p=586

Also, if you are wanting a live version of Hangman, here's a link to the Japan 1975 recording: http://bigozine2.com/roio/?p=564

Thanks, but I do have many versions of GGH show, including the complete version made by Pittrek. And I've heard many live versions of Hangman. I just kind of had a question about a bit different thing.
