Jean-Luc Ponty - Live at Las Palomas Theater, Encinitas, CA, USA, October 23, 1976 [SBD][FLAC]

How lucky we are that so many great 70s Ponty shows are circulating in good quality. Here's another one that is not widely traded so I thought it should be shared. This is typically traded as a 1 CD show, however, I know a more complete 2CD version exists - but I've never seen it on the lists in my snail trading circle. If you have a longer version that sounds as good as this, please post it! But until then, enjoy this one.

The original source CD was a mess. Duplicate tracks, tracks of silence, no track splits on some songs, etc. The only positives were the excellent sound quality and the absence of droupouts and digital glitches. I extracted all tracks with EAC, deleted the duplicates, spliced back together the tracks that should not have been split and split those that needed splitting using CDWave. I added fades to the beginning and ending of tracks where necessary. Enjoy!

Source: Soundboard

Quality: Excellent for mid 70s (A/A- with minor tape wow/flutter)
