From the original uploader
This cassette copy sounds decent. It has some light surface noise that you can barely hear.
Since this does have a cassette in the lineage I wouldn’t consider this a definitive version.
If you like Croce and haven’t heard this show yet, then this would be a good copy to start with.
There is 1 skip that I noticed during track 7 @ 1:54.

Notes from the original uploader:

– audio signal to ~ 10 khz

– stero recording with stong monoaural character

– most likely this is a pre-fm recording given the absence of hiss

– d1t03: brief skip at 11:40; cuts at end

– d1t04: some crackle at start, brief drop outs at 0:06, 0:09; fades out at end, unknown amount of music is missing

comments from original uploader:

This show is so early I hadn’t heard of Mahavishnu Orchestra yet then, and did
not hear this broadcast. This may be the 1st Boston Maha. show, although I suspect they may have done a show in late 71 at Jazz Workshop or somewhere else. Just a few months later, Maha. was touring almost constantly and played at least 2 more Boston shows in 1972. this is definitely the earliest 72 Boston Maha. show I know of, the start of a very fiery relationship (in a good way) and still featuring the music of “Inner Mounting Flame” which is a good description of this band’s career.

Even this early on, the flame was burning brightly, but you can tell it’s an early Maha. show. It may also be the best version out there, since I’ve heard a few in varying quality and I’m sharing the best one I could put together. Folks have said they want more Maha. So if anyone out there has more original (or Apocalypse tour) Maha. please post it. The 1st rock band I ever heard with a violin in it was this one, Ponty came a few years later for me (since I didn’t see him until 1976.)

various cassette sources > WAV > flac > torrent.
source: 3 source FM matrix: tracks 1-3, source 1, which has some static
in parts but never very loud or long lasting. This is a 2nd gen. tape.
The rest is from 1st gen. (different master source) and sounds as good as
I’ve ever heard this show sound, but it also has some static. The fidelity is
quite good for a Jan. 72 FM recording, with great seperation of left and right,
but WBCN was hardly the megawatt giant it has been since circa early 80’s.
The third source (unknown) only provides a few seconds of this recording, filling in just a few seconds of talk after Dawn when John mentions he broke a string and we’ll be right back, at which point they cut away to a commercial, and cut back in after John mentions Jan Hammer, just as he says “he’s from Czeckoslovakia”.

I have cut out all the commercials, and left all the music and talk in here.
The 3rd source is not as good as the other two, fortunately it’s just barely
long enough to notice it, and there strictly to maintain the continuity of the

first seeded in 2009.
reseeded in 2011 with a flac > wav > flac (sb’s aligned)
reconversion to remove the sbe’s.
