Total Time ::: 2:13:38
::: Very fine AUD in small club. Check samples for disavowel or ardent admiration.
::: Warts: Sid not do meticulous remastering so there are a few (cross-channel patchable) dull spots here & there. #01 fades in right @start. #10 quick splice @tapeflip.
::: First-ever circulated digital transfer direct from master tapes.
::: Feel free to supply the missing titles for #02,03,07 if you know them.
::: Carville said, "This one's pretty good. Billy Bang is great here & the Arkestra tries hard. It must have been tough without their leader."
