Thank you Andy! The year seems to be 1992. Here is what was written on a Dime post last April by PsyKies:
"Jack DeJohnette's Special Edition recorded live at Birmingham's Symphony Hall on 4th October 1992. This was the third of an eight date Contemporary Music Network tour which was recorded by BBC Radio 3 and broadcast in early 1993".

You're right of course. My mistake. It does say 1992 on my cassette. Thanks for pointing it out.

thank you softnucleus for the map. i was beginning to dip into this set and some time into the familiar and apparently rather mammoth 'where or wayne?' i wondered if 'blue' might also be covered somewhere amongst the unnamed tracks. ha! it was right there after jack's drum solo, just a mere celestial spade of kilobytes away!

that "two guitar chant" alone is worth the price of admission. chillingly lovely. thanks again, mr. andy.

Was just listening to this band's "Audiovisualscapes" and the thought popped into my mind--tell me if I'm wrong--but, Jack DeJohnette has got to be as horrible at naming his records as he is great at drumming. Maybe it's just his sense of humor...
