entertaining shows in 4 cities.
The Charlotte, March 20th, 1976, 2:30pm show was previously released from an
incomplete and inferior source by "J. R. Productions" label in 1994 ("Steamrollin'
The sound was hissy, distant and badly muffled on few opening tracks.
We have found a completely new source; the original tape was recorded by a
well-known American fan, using back then an excellent quality Sony TC-55
For the first time we present this great concert in complete form and in its
best possible sound quality!
As usual, this release is presented in a de-lux 6-panel digipak with a
collection of photos taken in Charlotte, March 20th, 1976 2:30pm and with great
liner notes written by the fan who taped the show!
