These came as a mix of parts of Otis Rush & Junior Wells/Buddy Guy from Prague Jazz Festival in 1966, along with unrelated parts of T-Bone Walker and B.B. King's sets at Monterey Jazz Festival, Sept 16 1967. I decided to separtate them for my own archive, and figured I would share them as well. It's not every day material as historic as this appears, and therefore I personally decided it needed some better treatment. I also cleaned up some typos, and corrected song titles. Online research has shown that Prague Jazz Fest was held on the dates above from early/mid Oct., so that it narrows down the date some.

The following information was found online..
"This is from Reel to Reel Masters. My friend and I got a chance to transfer some great mono soundboards from Reel to Reels in the early 80's. This is actually a Teac Reel to Reel to Cassette (top of the line Yamaha TC-1000 cassette deck from the 80's) and then transferred straight to my Philips CDR-765 deck. This is as close to a 1 generation as possible since the reels where sent of to never never land surplus probably never to see the light of day from the original source. CD Burners didn't exist yet so I had to wait until they we're available to transfer this show This is a live soundboard that may or may not have been broadcast. The sound quality speaks for itself."
