transfer - mcchocchoc aka JBK Feb. 2011.

As all of my shares are, these tapes are sourced from my collection. I believe that this will be an upgrade to most who have it. As great as these shows sound, my copies ran very,
very slow. They now sound like they should !

OK. Here is the late show. As a few of you already know, when I did the transfer I discovered that side two of the late show was blank. Bummer. Not sure what happened there. I am uploading what I do have because it sounds great and it just may be the best version that we will get here. If anybody has the full show in better quality, please do share. Even if it is not as good, I would really like to have the whole set. Thanks.

Mentioned above . . a seperate folder with the track "Well". I did that because the track on the main set is indexed too tightly. Instead of doing it all over again, I simply ripped that song over. You can insert it in place of the track within the main set if you'd like.

Another great set. The versions of "Well" and "Ice Rose" are easily among the best I have ever heard . . . worth the download for those two tracks alone ! When Ice Rose ends Don and Bruce continue to duet together for almost two minutes. It's great.

As with any show in which Don is comfortable, he really lets loose. I think these shows fall into that category. Enjoy.

As always, much thanks to the Taper of these excellent shows and much thanks to all my old trading pals from many years ago.
