i think the band was a version of the lineup on ‘mellow madness’ (1975), based on a japanese bootleg version of this (details in the info file), but possibly the entire crew as the lineup included “and other unknown members”. super quality, i didn’t notice the fm crackling, but then if you’re “multitasking”, nothing gets done right, eh? i’ve redone the info file (the full file is in the zip, not below), including comparing the tracks to albums by quincy jones at around the same time.

a low level crackling from poor over the air fm reception is present in places but not very distracting.
allen tarzwell recorded this on his reel-reel and i made a copy on my reel-reel.
transfered to dat in the 1990’s.
lots of little pops were repaired some remain,
one second of damaged tape was removed at 29:56 and about 1/2 second at 30:15,
then the volume and balace adjustemnt all were all done using audacity.
couldn’t track down all the correct song titles.
also there was no exact date noted anywhere but i am almost certain it was from 1975.
