Source 2: http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=509835 FM > DAT, originally posted by upkerry12
2006-04-06 as torrent #90180, retracked and re-seeded by FBAUER on 2014-10-08 - used for track 06 *
Art from the fbauer post & updated by Lewojazz is included - thanks to both !!
Quality: EX TS-file & A+ FM tracks
I downloaded the good sounding fbauer post, although it ran slow compared to the re-broadcast and had many DAT
glitches / gaps plus repeated sections before / after track breaks, so I was very glad that Lewojazz recorded
a shorter NWR re-broadcast in superior quality and luckiliy overlapping the last track of the FM version by just
one note, so I stitched them together and did my usual remastering, so here is as much of the set as currently
available and in the best quality, although if somebody has the missing material to patch the fade-out and
announcer, do let me know and I'll update the post.
For the vintage, the sound quality is remarkable and you get to hear Garbarek and Rypdal playing far more free
at this early stage of their careers than their later cool 'Icy Fjords' styles.
