      I finally got around to spinning this, bracing myself for disappointment given many of the comments here. With expectations set low accordingly, I honestly couldn't be any happier. Given the fidelity of the source recording, hard to imagine this sounding any better. My copy is perfectly flat with zero surface noise. Could the sleeve be of higher quality? Absolutely. But on the whole, this is a treasured addition to the collection. Mostly sharing for others who may be on the fence.

        If you guys continue to pay more to get less, the industry will keep asking more and delivering less - ad infinitum. Everybody should return overpriced records that aren't of immaculate pressing quality and overall presentation.

          The fidelity of the source isn't exceptional, but the final product is very satisfying, nonetheless. Let me state that I (ultrasonically) cleaned my records 15 mins each before play, and the result is a near silent listening experience. Some soft ticks in the quietest passages; of which there are few. I'd utilize tone control to boost bass and mid-treble. It doesn't seem like anyone except the sax/flute player was near a mic (and he distorts,) but it lends space to the hall. Paraphrasing an earlier commenter, this would have gone down a lot easier at 25$ (Real Gone Music, Mr. Bongo -- they can do it.).

            Is the music on here previously unreleased? Any more versions?

              I’m glad I bought this for the music, but as others have mentioned, the package isn’t great for the price and my vinyl is noisier than I expect modern vinyl to be.

                The music contained here is fantastic. I am glad I bought it for the music, but I have some pretty big gripes. The package is just ok to pretty disappointing. Retail for me was $50 which at RSD usually will get you a Stoughton Gatefold cover with two discs pressed at RTI. This release came with a cheap cover, crap paper sleeves, and was probably pressed somewhere like GZ. The sonic quality is not super high. Some distortion and muddiness. That may be from the original tape, but it seems to be a little below what I would like quality-wise. If it had been $10 cheaper it would have made a lot more sense to me.

                  What a gig! I was too young (and stuck behind the Iron Curtain) to go see him. Now, in Curtis' immortal words, Freddie's Dead. I feel blessed that this music has been preserved and issued and can be heard. Background noise doesn't matter a jot. All LPs have it. The air is full of dust, which lands on even the best pressed cleanest LP. Families, pets, birds, cars and passers by (among others) produce extraneous noise at all times, everywhere (even in my tiny quiet village). CDs don't have surface noise, but then you hear the musicians grunt or hum out of tune or actually TOUCH their instruments. Audiences at concerts make noise all the time, some of which also gets onto recordings. I recently emailed an artist to compliment him on his latest release. I mentioned that during his quiet, introspective pieces, the sound of birds in the garden mingled with the music and, at the finale, my old grandfather clock chimed in. He wrote back, delighted, wishing he'd heard it. :0)

                    Great release. My records are flat and quiet. Recording quality is very good but not superb. Paper sleeves are a common gripe but I’ve never had any issues removing the records unscathed. Just go slow, or rip the paper away since they need to be replaced anyway. All new records sound better after a good cleaning so make this a habit and you should have great listening

                      Nice document of a terrific performance, but given the price of this release, I was expecting better. The TV studio recording and subsequent mix/mastering is lacklustre. Both discs are scuffed from the paper sleeves.

                        The jacket could be better quality and the paper sleeves are a real disappointment for a release like this. However, I cleaned mine right out of gate. Pressing is flat and quiet. The mastering is somewhat restrained but it works in this context. Overall, I am really happy with this since this pressing has it where it really counts.
