Quality: Digital all the way to you, so EX+ (?)

A great performance from the under-recorded legendary group, broadcasted by the BBC for Miles' 80th
anniversary from the archives of Netherlands Public Radio (NOS) archive, supposedly not broadcast
before. Not much more I can say that Miles fans don't already don't know more

Some may question the quality of DAB transmission, but the BBC broadcasts at 192kHz (as permitted by
Dime) and I have had the opportunity to record broadcasts from FM and then the repeats from DAB.
Digital quality was substantially better than FM and with noticeable reduction of background FM
hiss and implusive noise that enable lower levels of musical detail and ambience to be heard.
My FM tuner gets no use now.

Set list:
01 - Intro (00:48) stage announcer (Joachim-Ernst Berendt)
02 - Directions (10:01)
03 - Bitches Brew (19:33)
04 - Sanctuary (16:58)
05 - Masqualero (14:56)
06 - Outro (00:46) station announcer
Total time: 63:04 min

Miles Davis - Trumpet
Wayne Shorter - tenor / soprano sax
Chick Corea - electric piano
Dave Holland - bass
Jack de Johnette - drums & marimba

1. Set list is as described in the broadcast and my track markers coincide as best I could
2. db.etree.org lists additional segments so you can take your choice
3. I'm told that ROIO copies of this concert do exist, but unlikely of the same quality as this
4. Sorry, no artworks as I'm not very good at that kind of thing - anybody else?
