    Nagoya, Dec 5th had previously been released from source # 1 on “Fourth Night Live” on Platypus Records (PR-1001 A/B) and “4th Night Revisited” (no label). A more recent release, “One Moment In Time II (Misterclaudel mccd-22/23)” used two additional sources to present the complete show as the first one had run out in the middle of “Devil’s Radio”.

    The best source for Hiroshima 12/5 was “Old Friends, Old Love (Tricone 045/046)”, which used the master tape out previously in inferior “fuzzy” quality on “Live In Peace (Front Page FP-0040020/1)”.

    Fukuoka 12/09 had been out on “Rock Legends In Fukuoka (Masterport 017) CD-R” before but I never found a review of this. Anyway, with many good quality recordings circulating, it always seemed to be one for completists only.

    This set too much equalized for old cassette recordings. each shows are very rare but not too good sound(especially Fukuoka)with that treatment. terrible quality and not recommended.

    I not heard any of the Mabo shows before but if they’re as good as you can confirm then I’d be all ears.

    Nice catch, Stu. Yes, these are new audience tapes as the “Mabo” Records indicates. That’s the same taper who recorded various Clapton shows.
