Recorded at Berliner Jazztage 1973. Also on the bill this evening were the Peter Brötzmann Quartett and the Miles Davis Group.

"The End" is just a restatement of the "We Are You" theme.

A less complete version of this set (23:00) has also been broadcast:

Introduction - Achim Hebgen from studio (0:40)
We Are (2:08)
Now Is (inc, 5:25) - splice
Time is Going On (closing fragment, 0:09)
We Are You (2:08)
Going Out (6:47)
The End (1:20)
Unknown Title (3:55)
Closing announcement - Achim Hebgen from studio (0:21)

In his opening announcement, Hebgen mentions six parts of the medley -- "You," "We Are," "Now Is," "Time is Going On," "We Are You," "Going Out," and "The End" -- but I only hear what's listed above.
