Looks like another boston 75 release is coming from sigma
Disappointing to find that the official release of PF’s KQED footage is not ‘definitive’.
Another release of the Rainbow Dec 16 1976 evening show? I can’t be bothered to see how many times we’ve had this in some form. All bar a few tracks we even got the thing officially, as CD2 of the ‘Deluxe remaster’ of ‘On Stage’. Does this mean I shall not be buying it? Now, I never said that…
so, not better than sigma-26?
