Herbie Hancock's VSOP II - Chicago, Park West, April 3, 1983 [FM]

LDB Special Series #202

Out of my 7,000+ shows and radio broadcasts, I have many concerts that were special for some reasons: the setlist, the musicians, the venue or unexpected events. These are the ones I'd like to propose you. Most of these come from my cassettes collection, so they will be released at a slower pace than my Master Series! But you won't be disappointed!

I will try to gather the most unusual things I have in my collection and, as always, your feedback and comments will be my reward for all the work involved in this project. I found this one on my archives and I remember I was sent the recording from an american collector that had taped it. This broadcast needed a bit of restoring. Now it sounds good to my ears but before that the two channels were fairly unbalanced. Still, some static is present but it does not come from the CD itself.

The recording was sent to me as April 3, 1980 but on that year VSOP mark II did not exist so i am more inclined to think that this come from the 1983 world tour from this outfit. Top notch line-up, as you can imagine, and a great pleasure to listen to it back after many years. Enjoy! ~LDB (taper)

DO NOT share this music on mp3, just convert it for your own use. Sharing mp3's is the right way to make me stop sharing music here!
