Baden Baden Free Jazz Meeting 1971 - audio upgrade

We posted a while back a set of recordings from the above event, but only in mp3 as that was the only format available. Meanwhile, bialero has been discreetly slipping in lossless versions of these recordings in the comment section of the earlier post. These may easily be overlooked, so I thought it warranted a separate "front page". I can't say how much these posts match the earlier ones, because I haven't had a chance to listen through the full set of both.

Anyway, here's the basic info:

Sound quality is very good throughout with the exception of the penultimate cd, but I'm willing to sit through any version of "The Serpent's Kindly Eye" at whatever sound quality.

Thanks to bialero for invaluable service to humankind!

I thought you might appreciate it, M. It may sound cacophonous at times, but it's beautiful cacophony.

Amazing music indeed. Thanks a lot to both SOTISE and bialero fo sharing this with us.

I just want to point out that it is different music on mp3 and FLAC rip, and that source of recording is different as well. E.G. mp3 files are radio rip.

Nevertheless, music is fantastic in both cases, so get them both and enjoy.
