Otis Rush Paris, Elysee Montmartre, 1981 october 20th, SM aud master
I'm posting this show after long hesitations because i still remember i went disappointed after this night.
I found the Otis's playing a bit weird sometimes, some said he was drunk; may be i was hoping too much ?
But i don't have to stop blues fans to listen to this uncirculated master recording, just let me know what's your opinion about the performance.
The first set was short with a 21 mns number, then the second was more than 90 mns long; very long tunes were also played.
Recorded from the seats facing stage, with a Sony TCD5 M and a couple of Phonia powered mics.
Cassettes played on a Marantz SD 4051 deck (pitch adjusted), to Zoom H4, SD card to PC, Audacity editions(tracks, volume), FLAC (TLH).

I don't know who was the lady who sang on 12.
