[National Health Stockholm 1979] Flac set shared as torrent on Dime (unsigned info).
Show listed on Calyx website.
"This show was recorded on a rather bulky, but yet battery driven, JVC cassettetape recorder with two borrowed Shure (?) microphones. I have wanted to do something with this show for a very long time as I screwed up when I recorded it. In the darkness, just before the start of the show I managed to plug the 2nd microphone into the earphones socket. So the first set is in mono, the second in stereo (yes I realized my mistake during the intermission).
I have done no tampering with the original tape, except copying the the right channel to the left on the first set. Sound quality is OK with the encore being a little bit muffled as I got a bit boxed in when the crowd got to its feet. Still, a nice tape which I don't think I have copied more than two-three times...".
