Sunday Night at London Roundhouse was recorded on Sunday 25th, November 1973. The remastered version features an expanded release of the complete concert. The live in the studio jam that was side 2 of the original vinyl album was removed from this recording and released as a separate CD with the rest of the tracks recorded that night called "Unidentified Flying Abstract." The Dream Nebula release has been remixed from the original 16–track master tapes by Paschal Byrne, Mark Powell and Roye Albrighton. Remember The Future Part 1 was finally complete and was performed live for the very first time during this show. This remastered cd is a must have in our opinion.

The sound quality of "Desolation Valley" found on this vinyl album is one of the best sounding versions ever released until the remasters came along in 2002. Even then it is debatable because there is no compression nor any de-noising making the sound very clear, clean, sharp, and crisp. Taff's keyboard and synthesizers sounds clearly stand out and for once they are not buried way down in the mix!

I do not know why track 11 is listed as "Remember The Future Part Two" when the song is "Let It Grow!" Nektar would and did call "Let It Grow" at times and some times "Remember The Future Part Three" in the Nektar Diaries. Just maybe perhaps this was a printing error?
