Dixie Dregs & Jaco Pastorius - Live at Musician's Exchange, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, September 26th, 1982 [FLAC]

Note on etree db:

Show originally scheduled for the parking lot at Musician's Exchange; moved at the last minute to City Limits near main gate of Port Everglades. Jaco plays the last three songs.
Regarding that "Jaco played on the last 3 songs", I suspect that is false? Looking at the order of the tape & I don't think The Dregs are going to close a show with a "Jaco Solo (America)" but rather "Cruise Control." Can anybody who was there confirm?

Notes from mr_mags:

*Recording starts off a little muffled but cleans up some after about a minute.

*Most Between song banter is not recorded so therefore some harsh cuts

*I *think* I got the setlist right

Aside from the very historic aspect of Jaco playing on this, it is not a bad sounding recording- some parts better than others? Great performance, of course. Quite enjoyable- IMO. Interesting setlist with "what If" and a preview of "Huron River Blues" from Steve's first solo album.
Enjoy !!! ~mr_mags

Beste Fred,

Wow, ben benieuwd naar deze! Ben een fan van de Dregs en wist niet dat ze met Pastorius gespeeld hadden.
Ook veel dank voor Soft Machine!
