I think there was a version of this concert posted fairly recently on dime, but
this one is from a pretty good sounding 1st generation reel from master cassette
copy I have of this. I didn't see this show (I was at a George Benson show that
night and fortunately had a friend who saw this one) so I'm not sure if this is
all of it but I believe it is except one song cuts in for a tape flip and another
is cut seconds before the end. This is the first time I've ever uploaded this,
just recently put it on disc and FLAC file. They do some Tom Scott songs, some
Alphonso songs, a few by Steve Kahn and a couple by Cobham. A nice mix of tunes
here played in a very good sounding theater and sounding very good. Billy has
played the Berklee P.C. 2 times that I know of (the other being 78), the time
before this in 76 with the George Duke group he had then was at Symphony Hall,
I was told. (anybody out there have that one? I missed it) This was an inspired
show, Mark Soscan was a very recent Berklee College graduate around this time.
1977 was a very good year for shows, too many to see nearly all the good ones.
This is one worth hearing a few times, although the Follow your Heart is NOT the
same song John McLaughlin and the Joe Farrell Quartet played on Farrell's record
which came out in 1977 so don't get your hopes up on that...
(too bad, that would be something special).
Do not sell this recording.
Trade freely and losslessly.
