that torrent was no longer on the tracker as of this posting.
I have balanced the levels, which were uneven by about 2 db louder
on the right side, monoized a short section in track one
(left channel dropout) and adjusted some level changes in source
recording in the 1st couple of minutes of track 1.

Sonny Fortune (ss, as, fl)

Miles, Live 1971-1975

Hi all,

In case anyone is interested, I have done some work in the last couple of
years on making a bunch of Miles' 1971-1975 live shows sound better than
the tapes I could get hold of. This is mostly focused on audience tapes as
they are in greater need of improvement (I suppose improvement is
subjective, but see what you think)

Some of you might have higher gen sources already, but in case there is any
interest, feel free to download from dropbox. I'd love to get hold of good
quality material from this era so if any of you have better material for
these dates give me a shout!

Hopefully, some of you will enjoy this, but feel free to ignore if not.
I'll leave them up in dropbox for a week or so.
