Magmasystems Notes:

This is the first time that these recordings have been released. The original reels came from "A French Gentleman" who stumbled upon the various Magma
blogs and who, as it turned out, had seen Magma several times in the 1970's. The gentleman not only had some assorted photographs, but had recorded
various concerts. These tapes made their way to a well known DIME contributor who wishes to remain anonymous at this time. This person spent quite
a bit of time digitizing the music and trying to clean up the sound. Some of these efforts were successful, some were not so ... as will be apparent
in some later releases. I have dubbed these recordings "The French Gentlemen Tapes", and after about two years, I have been given permission to
share these through time. Much thanks go to the Gentleman, as well as Trahnsferheur.
