No mp3's from this upload, never, nowhere!!! Please don't alter the info file in case of uploads to other torrent sites. Give credit to all the tapers out there when uploading their work onto other trackers. Share the gift of music.

Note: This is one of those tapes I find myself cursing about. It has great music but at the same an enormous amount of hiss and background noise. It was recorded on a very cheap tape that still had sounds on it from other concerts. That's annoying, so be warned and please don't blame it on me. I tried my best to denoise, declick and dehiss the tape without losing any musical information. Sorry, I can't do better. If you have a better source tape or the means in you possession to remaster this, please go ahead! This one features an early version of James and of course one of my all time Metheny favourites The Magician's Theatre (Pat hates this one nowadays...). Enjoy the music (not the noise...)!
