this one comes to us courtesy of 'glmlr'
who ripped this from his own vinyl, and sent me a copy.
'glmlr' says ' to you, and any other CT lovers who may not have succeeded in finding a copy of this record. It didn't have a wide circulation.
this is a clean rip, the original recording is good,though not state of the art by todays standards.
this one has certainly slipped under the radar,i did see a copy once over 20 years ago alas i was new to the music, and found the prospect of a double album of solo C.T, rather daunting so i passed it up.
this billed in the taylor sessionography as having been released in 1982, pretty much one continuous performance divided into four parts, each filling out one side of an lp.
