Post Birmingham '75 Lamb Recordings: FAde001 is 5.1.75 -- HW11-?
I posted the below in another section, but it may be of interest here as well. There has been serious doubt as to the recording purported to be 5.2.75, actually being that date and the 5.1.75/HW11 (as labeled) bootleg may very likely be from an entirely different show/venue. Someone who attended both Birmingham performances addresses the issue below -- this is quoted from a correspondence between he and I from a couple of years ago:

As I stated, I attended both these Lamb shows with my wife at
the tender age of 21. Birmingham was our regular haunt for live shows
back then. We have both listened to the recordings in question and both
agreed separately before discussing it that the FADE001 show was when
we sat in the stalls without question. I then had to check the ticket
stubs to see which night that actually was. That turned out to be the
Thursday night (1/5). The Fade show’s gig origin has always been up to now 2.5.75 Birmingham or ‘2nd night’.

As I also stated, the HW11 recording (which is labeled
1.5.75 Birmingham) is totally unfamiliar to me. At
virtually every gig I've ever attended there has always been something
in the performance that sticks in your mind and I'm sure this would
have been triggered by listening to the HW11 recording. After all, this
is true of the FADE show and the 2/5 show was the following night.
On the HW11 recording there is a conversation going on underlying the
'Old man river' fadeout. These guys are definitely not talking in a
Birmingham accent. I know that this is no proof in itself as to the
shows location as these guys could have traveled in. I will try to
identify the accent to see if that gives any further clue to the origin
of the show
