Tony Williams Lifetime (Feat. John McLaughlin) - Live in New York, USA, November 1969 [FM/SBD][UPGADE][FLAC]

Tony Williams Lifetime a 5 song radio broadcast from late November 1969 the first 2 songs while not mint are a lower gen than what most collectors have and no noise reduction added or any tweaking done (the person I got the tape from said they were told the radio broadcast was from late November 1969) songs 3 > 5 are a new find dubbed off the radio station master reel
my cassette is very low gen, I was told a search was made of the radio station archives but the first 2 songs were not found. At the start of song 3 " Unknown Title " there was a long loud beep the recording warning signal from the Polydor studio I shortened it and reduced the volume so you hear it but it should not bother anyone. In the USA " Emergency " was released as 2 seperate LP's and it appears Polydor to stimulate interest in the 2nd LP release gave a tape with a couple of live tracks to a New York radio station ("Emergency" and a new song the as yet unrecorded "To Whom it May Concern") The radio station must have asked for more so they could play a longer live broadcast and Polydor recorded Lifetime in the studio and gave them this tape. Whether all 5 songs are from the same session or 2 sessions or a mix of live and studio will only be answered when someone writing a Tony Williams discography has access to the Polydor recording session files. Enjoy !!!
