This is wonderful, but I would say that, wouldn't I? Beautiful cacophony! All teh best to you inveterate tapers.

Thanks for this, looking forward to hearing it.
Yes, the BofB that recorded "Yes Please" but with the added bonus of Ray Anderson! Interesting!

Yes, it's wonderful, put part 2 of the mp3 download is corrupted and won't open. Can you fix it, please?

Thanks, i just grabbed it and listen to this show. Sonia sounds a lot different from other versions known to me. Anybody guess where to catch "Yes Please" album? Due to my research, it is unavailable now except for extremely high priced vinyl copies at some webmarkets...

You will find it here (mp3) >


kinabalu said...

I have a cdr copy of the album. I see if I can put it up here.

miloo2 said...

Thank you very much, onxidlib - no wonder i cannot find it - there is no Brotherhood of Breath in title nor tag. And thanks kinabalu - i would like to hear better quality version of Yes Please! I was listening to mp3's and like it a lot, despite that it is very different band comparing to that from first half of 70's. Quiet organised and disciplined, nice solos and clear accompanying. Surely i will listen to it more often than to Country Cooking.

Thanks a lot for all the Chris McGregor sharings.

The mp3 link of "Yes Please" is broken.

I'm very intersted in hearing it in FLAC.

Thanks in advance
