This recording was previously shared as Hugh Hopper Quartet on IS contributions section. I think Elton is playing excellently here. I did what I can with improving muddy sound of this recording. Sadly, Keith's piano is underamplified, so we will probably never hear it as we want, but in the end it sounds surprisingly good to me. And more surprisingly, theme at the end of track 5 seems to me like being Gualchos from EDQ Silent Knowledge 1995 album!
I would also like to remind two albums that quartet made: 1976 Cruel But Fair on Compendium label (reissued on CD by One Way Records, now probably OOP) and 1977 Mercy Dash, which remained unsissued until 1985 release on Culture Press (which made also first CD reissue, second is out now by Gonzo Multimedia).
And coincidentally, I've just got the answer to my question, from where this good quality live recording on YT is originated. It was released as a bonus on Japanese paper-sleeve CD Cruel But Fair. So obviously there is another stuff!
