  1. This set comes with an enormous amount of notes and details. I’ve tried to pair that down to just the essential for my posting here, I’ve kept all of the info in the text file in the download.

  2. Hi Mat,

    Interesting post – I have the source materials for nearly all of this (all except 4th and 6th June ‘LK’). Will be interested to read the reasoning behind the track selection. To me it is all essential. Would love to collect the LK ’78 set (or at least the rarer dates) if you ever see ’em on the trackers. Those 4 & 6 June would be a great place to start.

    Incidentally there was a great post for a MISSING (FOR ME ANYWAY) Japan date Osaka 24 Feb on G101 recently. Surprisingly nice rich sound and really fab performance. It’s the night before the 2 nights which comprised my old favourite 78 boot ‘Far East Tour’. Of course the Millards have moved all the goal posts. Still love it anyway!
