It was a really great show, well worth burning the midnight oil for and the quality of the restoration was terrific.

I have videos of all 3 of the shows I think. They were put out here by TCB Releasing/ Kay Jazz, based in Frome, Somerset - who were presumably the European distributors here in the UK mentioned in the commentary. These came out in the 1980s. Not bad quality but the new restorations are far superior. That Jazz Crusaders episode is a big improvement on a fantastic little performance.
