Total Time ::: 1:06:24
::: Very nice AUD that could use a bit o' bass. Check samples for timbre or shiver yr timbers as the case may be.
::: WARTS: Taper cut off deck between most songs, omitting clapping but keeping inbetween song dialogs. Fixed dropouts & dullspots but surely missed a few. Some minor Beta transfer artifacts in the background at times but they ain't too bad.
::: COMPARISON CLAUSE: The original 2011 upload shall now be known as the Mk1 version & is entirely obsolete.
::: COMPARISON CLAUSE: DIFFERENT show than Gay&Terry Woods 1976-03-20 Dublin show I also uploaded.
::: Most songs have rather long meandering intros, often with stories, so traxsplits are set up so you can opt for only music if you wish.
::: Steeleye Span founders & post-Woods Band here (& Terry is ex-Sweeney's Men & pre-Pogues here). Joyful first class folkrock rivaling anything out there. Don't miss it!
::: The same year their Polydor albums "The Time Is Right" & "Renowned" were released.
::: Guitarist David Morrison gives us 2 of his own songs, #09 (David with Gay & Terry) & #10 (David solo).

Nothing here ever commercially released to my knowledge. If I'm wrong, please advise & I'll take the offending trax offline.
DimeTravel 278 ::: Thanks to the original taper, Mr Smith, an enthusiastic music lover of the first order! ::: Corrections welcome ::: Thanks to Zongo for taper introductions & tape assistance. This is high on the pinnacle of the folkrock scene. Take this along with yer fave Pentangle, Fairport, Steeleye & Incredibles to the desert island of yer choice (and wish you had perfect live gigs of Trees, Spriguns, Forest, Dr. Strangely Strange & C.O.B. to add to the mix). Astounding musical perfection. If you don't have their albums & don't know where to start, check out the CD collection that's around.
