LDB Special Series #272

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the
musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my
cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!
I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my
reward for all the work involved in this project.

DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3's is the right way to make me stop sharing
music here.

This is probably my favourite WR line-up ever. I am not the one who's a die-hard fan of the Jaco period: for me Alphonso
and Chester were THE rhythm section for WR. Freezing fire is amazing as well as the final bWW. They were so tight, powerful
but yet such a strong musical unit. This is their show at the annual Berliner Jazztage 1975 and - you would not believe it -
their first time in that festival. The band at their top. Soundwise this is quite good although not pristine: my guess is
that comes from german radio but no DJ is annoying the music. It looks like this is sourced from a vinly boot, but I am not
sure and I can't remember if there's any from that show. I had to change the track order a bit to reconstruct the common
setlist from 1975: on my cd they were clearly not in the right order...
