Herbie Hancock Quartet with Jaco Pastorius - Live at University of Illinois, Champaign, IL, USA, February 20, 1977 [UPGRADE][FLAC]

~~ speed corrected Version ~~

For collectors and real fans only!

In Herbie and especially Jaco trading circles, this has been around for years. However, a search of the dimebot shows no history of this being uploaded here. Hard to believe/ I may be wrong. Either way, it has not be around here for a while. UNLIKE the Chicago FM Broadcast but LIKE the Kalamazoo recording- this is for fanatics/collectors only & worth a spin once in a great while-IMO. The Chicago FM is the real treasure. I saw it sold as official a few years back but it still looked bootleggy to me. Can anybody confirm? I digress. I would not give it a better rating and those who demand EX auds & sbds only, You may want to think twice. There is still quite a bit of hiss. A loving remaster would be a beautiful thing. BTW- this thing came to me edited out of order so I retracked it into the proper sequence. Chameleon cuts & Spider starts in progress.

This is so great. Jaco stretches out a little more here than he did on the Chicago gig a few nights before (at least on the tracks that got recorded).

What's a good tool for removing the hiss?

Thanks again!

You're welcome Treg!

I've heard that Audacity is a great tool to remove hiss.

Please let me know when you succeed. I never used it myself but it would be great to hear if this programs works!
