this is all that was broadcast from the 1979 Playboy Jazz Fest coverage here.
this one has no FM static, it is clean quality, recorded from N.P.R. broadcast.
The announcer introduction fades in but all the music is complete.
No dolby, EQ or noise reduction was used in making or digitizing this recording.
