Total Time ::: 46:02
::: Quality varies. After the 1st 10 minutes it's quite good but there's (way) too much clapping! Check samples for tastebud trials or to stave off needles & pins.
::: Warts: #1 were extremely muffled so were EQ'd (for a partial fix), then taper raised mike. Taper cut off deck between songs. Repaired dullspots & dropouts but surely missed a few. A lot of clapping - in #2,#4,#5,#6&the start of #3.
::: NOTE: Quality improves a lot at start of #3 (after first 10&1/2 minutes).
::: "The British Are Coming" tour ~ Savoy Brown with Fleetwood Mac & Long John Baldry.

DimeTravel 208 ::: Thanks to the original taper & traders! ::: Corrections welcome ::: Well, I've fed you a number of SB shows from this "British Are Coming" tour, hopefully it's providing you with sufficient bluesy earfood to keep hunger at a distance. I figure there must be dozens of more early Savoy Brown recordings out there that haven't surfaced, including some early ones, let's hope some folks dig into their vaults! Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees
