John McLaughlin, Jack Bruce, Billy Cobham, Stu Goldberg - " Super Quartet" - Live at the Stadthalle in Bremen, Germany, October 20, 1979 [FLAC]

This group is often called the "Super Quartet" among fans.

Highly Recommended listening !!!

Please note:

The correct date of this show is most certainly October 20, 1979

Audience recording

Very good Sound Quality !!

The exact lineage is unknown but probably audience low gen tape > CDR

John McLaughlin - Guitars, Banjo
Jack Bruce - Bass
Billy Cobham - Drums
Stu Goldberg - Keys


1 Desire & The Comforter 14:47
2 Electric Dreams & Sighs 20:47
3 Miles Davis 11:21

Total time: 46:54


On track one, John plays some freakishly good parts that the microphone just cant handle in brief, intense spots. Even these parts are not too shabby sound-wise. A clipping reduction program might be used on these "bursts" but I think it would only distract from the effects. I did not apply any reduction and left it the way it was .... On track 3 there is a tape cut at 5:38 After the cut, Jack's bass sounds like nothing you've ever heard him play. At first, I didn’t even realize it even *was* a bass guitar!

Taken from hopboys Jack Bruce collection

Enjoy !!!

looking forward to this...

My "clip" of the Quartet doing 'Desire and the Comforter' (from Fillmore East) is doing "OK" on youtube.

The slideshow is more than a little strange - but people appreciate that.
