thanks very very much onxidlib !!
I've seen this concert already on P.Losin's list and assumed that it could be the one I taped and where I could not record the first broadcast because my tape recorder was broken that time.
Now - 35 years later - I got the opportunity to listen to the missing tracks again - what a great pleasure !!

JazzHound said...

this is some great music! Wondering, though, about the titles. #2 clocks in at 12:48 but is, I believe, Worms by Steve Lacy. (checks against Worms on Globe Unity in Japan - sample at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWKeiWbO7dc) Not sure about other titles...

Yes JazzHound, probably you're right. Haven't checked the titles so far. The track titles were included in the files I've got.
This uncertainty is the reason I appreciate it when the announcements of a recording are included in shares and deleted which is quite regularely the case.
Often they do give valuable informations about a recording and/or the circumstances of it.
