d1t01. /Black Satin
d1t02. Rated X
d1t03. Honky Tonk
d1t04. Right Off/


  • D1t01: The beginning of this song is missing along with the preceeding Intro.
  • D1t03: starting at about 8:30 there is a gurgling type noise. Not sure exactly what this.
    It continues into about the first 30 seconds of track 4.
  • D1t04: The track is cut at the end.
  • Many thanks to Freekjazz for the tapes and D. McCabe for the mastering and transfer.
    This tape came lableld as 9-24-1972 (See Peter’s notes below). Through some comparison
    it certainly fits the bill for this date. I would love to hear some of the other sources
    of this date. The sound very good. Wish the show were complete.
  • “This set was broadcast live on WBCN-FM radio. The closing announcement mentions that
    the Davis Nonet is at Paul’s Mall “for the rest of the weekend” — probably from Thursday
    the 14th through the following Sunday, the 17th. Another set, probably from a different night,
    was recorded by someone in the audience and is sonically inferior. See the listing for
    september 15-17, 1972 for details.” – Credit to Peter Losin,
  • “Super Sonic wrongly lists this music as recorded “live at the Quaker Jazz Festival,
    Philadelphia, NJ / September 24, 1972.” In addition, the track indexes are wrong:
    1.Black Satin (9:31); 2. Rated X (15:13); Honky Tonk (9:34); 4. Right Off (11:45).
    The Luxury CD is subtitled “WBCN Broadcast New Master” and the sound is imporoved over
    other issues.”- Credit to Peter Losin,
