2 stars I just listened to Parts 1 and 2 and I have to tell you there's something wrong with these recordings. They do not sound like they are mastered from the original tapes recorded during the concerts but from a recording of the BROADCASTS of these concerts. There is a constant buzz that goes on throughout the recordings. I'm not an engineer or a radio technician, but I've listened to enough radio to know interference when I hear it and this is something you don't get when recording direct.

The performances are of course stellar all around, but my gut tells me that King Biscuit were unable to come up with the actual tapes and just settled on an amatuer recording of the broadcast off a radio. Sounds like we're being duped a bit.

Still, if you're a die-hard fan, go for it but I'll pass. Nuff said, 2 stars for just the performances.
