I'm listening to this recording by the same band that recorded Pangaea and Agharta a week or two later. What a great performance! And the sound is much, much better than the officially released albums.

Just listening to the first track of this gem. I agree that the sound is great and the band is absolutely on fire. Now if only there was some nice Japanese psychodelic day-glo UFO/angel cover art to go with it ! :excited:

Another 'future project' for my list... :g

Anyone notice that Miles quotes 'Hello This is Joni' in the middle of Maiysha? :crazy:

Not that I know, but my first reflex is of course to post: are you kidding? Kinda funny to see the new Bootleg set (finally arrived here today, inspite of having pre-ordered many weeks ago) in the midst of all those crappity craps linked below.

That's a great concert. I'm pretty sure  Pete Cosey takes over the drum kit on the last track. He also played drums on the studio version of that song.
