thelot First off, I find it interesting that this show has been rated by 48 different fans when the average show around this time is typically rated by 14 individuals?

The source for this is a pretty flat SBD with multiple cassette generations. Luckily the pitch is perfect and the music comes through if you don’t mind cassette hiss. It’s the type of recording that’ll take you back to the good ol’ tape trading days. .

Unfortunately, we don’t have the 2nd set to review here as it looks like a good one. Set 1 is pretty solid. A few notes. The OG Alumni seems to be back. This version has a pretty harsh cut. Beautiful version of A-Train. Fish’s jazzy drum solo has been omitted from Split Open. I was curious to see if Fish would take back to back drum solos in A-Train and Split Open. Decent first set overall. Hopefully a master copy of set one and two show up some day.
