Mothers of Invention - Paris 1968

A classic early muvvas performance.
FZ & the boys march to a nearby
hummock and launch into a shuffle.
The audio quality is very good considering
it's over 40 years ago although it does take a
couple of minutes before the sound settles down.

Bebop Tango Contest (Waterloo, Canada 1973-11-18)
Announcer's Closing Remarks

Technical notes: The Realistic deck was notorious for engaging with the buttons not completely depressed. After the commercial break, one side wasn't pushed in properly and the sound became distorted until the problem was noticed and the button was pounded in on the fly. During this portion, the distorted side was deleted and the good side was copied over. So a part of it is in mono.

3 Dec 1967, Fifth Dimension, Ann Arbor, MI (Grp.Eq.Jff.archive-Musigny23)

This is an alternate source to: 1967 12 03 Ann Arbor 44.10 SBD (WIU2B-LudzNL-fl) speed corrected

Big Leg Emma amd King Kong widely booted and traded as the first two songs are thought to be from 1969 08 08. They are not from this date and place.
At this time it is believed that this is most likely the correct date and place of this recording there remains a possibility that it's not.
