Here's a rather rare one that has never been on the tracker before, coming directly from the Yojimbo collection. It's a pretty short recording: unless the master is longer, it seems that the taper let run his cassette until the end of side A and then didn't switch until the encore break. The tape itself is definitely not one of the best sounding ones: pretty booming and distorted. Other than a much needed speed correction applied by our Flambay, I managed to improve a little bit the sound of the original tape by getting rid of the original left channel who had a couple of shrill sounds here and there; the original source was already a mono one, anyway. Unfortunately, this improvement could not be done for the last part of the tape, starting from a splice (made to remove an overlap) during "Black Napkins": from that point onwards, the recording is a bit damaged with channel issues that cannot be eliminated in any way, so the last section has been left as it is.

The show itself is fine, a typical Early 1980 one. The highlights, of course, are the tracks in which Frank solos on and all of them are pretty good. The best ones are definitely "Outside Now" and "The Illinois Enema Bandit" in which Frank delivers some very passionate soloing. Even if incomplete, the "A Pound For A Brown" included here is quite good as well with yet another good FZ solo and some fine Tommy Mars improvisations.


Thanks to the unknown taper!
Thanks to Yojimbo for providing the source material!
Thanks to BengoFury for a fresh rip of the tape!
Thanks to Flambay for speed correction!
Thanks to all who contributed in saving the Yojimbo collection!

Enjoy !!

There was a noise-reduced version of this show provided by av floating around TDK for years, glad to finally have a (hopefully...) clean-sourced one, thanks!
