Eric Dolphy Quartet - Munchen, West Germany - December 1-2, 1961


Eric Dolphy Quartet
Munchen, West Germany
December 1-2, 1961

Magnetic Records MRCD 130
"Live in Germany" - speed corrected

Contrast clause:
Different, much superior sounding version imho from that one seeded earlier
by entmoot:
and myself: (speed corrected)

Drums (cymbals) and also bass clarinet are much more prominent here
than in the other version.

Track order is different from the other release,
also a few of the tracks are more complete here.

All credit should go to peterw for pointing out this version
and for posting a link in the comments thread around my earlier seed
to his upload of this version on the mininova tracker.
I took it from there, did the necessary speed corrections on each track,
and here we go.
