von-freeman-1977-08-15-amsterdam-front-coverwell, i still felt like a bit of von freeman and, great as the tommy flanagan shows were, there wasn’t a lot of von freeman in it, was there?  so here’s a two day run in amsterdam from 15-16 aug 1977 (from an ubu seed on dime in 2009, which i’ve also reseeded there a little while ago).
