After some 18 hours of work I can offer to you this very rare (to me a premiere) version of RESOLUTION,
the second movement of A Love Supreme, the first live known to exist to my knowledge.

The original Tape (you'll find it as Track02) was very noisy and needed a lot of volume adjustment.

The Bass solo is divided into 2 parts because it seems to come from to different sources.
The first part was almost inaudible and I had to pump up the volume to make it listenable (but almost without
ambiance noises )
The second part was pretty much louder and with a lot of noises as if the taper moved to a better place
to record the bass (it seems to me that there might be some music missing here in between).

Hope you all enjoy

Thanks to Peter losin for the original CD
