notes from th eoriginal uploader:

incredible jams! outstanding sound quality!!
new to general circulation (Aug 1 2008)
what more could you want?

once again, I can’t give enough thanks to the cast of characters responsible for bringing us this joy: Will Boswell, Taper Pat, Matt Smith, and Ihor W Slabicky (sorry if I left anyone out, this really seems to be a community contribution). Still, special thanks to my direct connection: Taper Pat and Matt Smith. I’m not only forever grateful for this wonderful music you keep sending my way to share with others, but I’m also forever grateful for your friendship, guidance, and kindness. I feel truly blessed to know you and have you in my life.

* track notes by Ihor W Slabicky (thanks Ihor!!!)

please forgive the tracking and timing issues. studio sessions could be tracked any number of ways and I did the best I could to adapt Ihor’s wonderful notes for a differently tracked version

** as Taper Pat observes:

“The source for this set of music is from a stash of reels and cassettes of unknown lineage made for JG by Kidd Candelario for listening purposes in the early and mid ’70’s (how did we play, what did we play, etc..). Kidd did not use archival material in the transfers (equipment, methodology or media) so the sound quality of the stash is variable. However, as time passes and analog sources decay or are MIA, some of the stash is proving to be great interest to the GD community. The stash is most likely copies of the master source, but in
some cases (O&ITW 6/6/73 Passaic), most likely is the master.”
