From the original uploader
This is a great recording! Excellent stereo sound…just a little wow and flutter (speed ‘wobble’) creeps in here and there (at it’s worst on the last couple of tracks on CD 2), and Sister Ray gets cut off. Overall it’s a magnificient recording for it’s time, or for any time for that matter – as good as many mixing desk or FM recording, and a great ‘feel’ to it. Forget the dry sound of some mixing desk and certain well known tapers uploads … this sounds like being there!

The date is slightly puzzling…according to doc it was 30th October, but other records suggest Lou played Philadelphia on that date. We wanted to get this online, and perhaps someone can help on the date? As you will hear it’s a great recording, and I’ve had upping this on my ‘to do’ list for a while, so here you are.

On the technical side, no audio processing was done : ODoc55 pointed out no PC was used for the transfer to disc. To get this onto Dime, using a PC was kind of essential, but I did no audio processing : aside from noting how precious some Lou fans can be about that, there was no need. The only work done was sorting out the track splits, they needed some tidying up, and that was done very carefully.
