d1t02. Rated X
d1t03. Honky Tonk

-------------------------------------------------------

Notes:

- D1t01: The beginning of this song is missing along with the preceeding Intro.

- D1t03: starting at about 8:30 there is a gurgling type noise. Not sure exactly what this.
It continues into about the first 30 seconds of track 4.

- D1t04: The track is cut at the end.

- Many thanks to Freekjazz for the tapes and D. McCabe for the mastering and transfer.
This tape came labeled as 9-24-1972 (See Peter's notes below). Through some comparison
it certainly fits the bill for this date. I would love to hear some of the other sources
of this date. The sound very good. Wish the show were complete.

- "This set was broadcast live on WBCN-FM radio. The closing announcement mentions that
the Davis Nonet is at Paul's Mall "for the rest of the weekend" -- probably from Thursday
the 14th through the following Sunday, the 17th. Another set, probably from a different night,
was recorded by someone in the audience and is sonically inferior. See the listing for
september 15-17, 1972 for details." - Credit to Peter Losin, http://www.plosin.com/

- "Super Sonic wrongly lists this music as recorded "live at the Quaker Jazz Festival,
Philadelphia, NJ / September 24, 1972." In addition, the track indexes are wrong:
1.Black Satin (9:31); 2. Rated X (15:13); Honky Tonk (9:34); 4. Right Off (11:45).
The Luxury CD is subtitled "WBCN Broadcast New Master" and the sound is imporoved over
other issues."- Credit to Peter Losin, http://www.plosin.com/

Notes:

- d1t01: Track starts mid song, music lost.

- d1t05: Track ends mid song, music lost.

- I worked at getting the mud out of this source for quite a while. This is about the best I
could get it. I compared it to a circulating version and this source has doesn't have the drop
out the others had in the first 10 seconds. The distortion I heard in the other source is not
present here, and the overall source is just clearer. Great show. This source does have a slight
hiss and a few instances of a very faint crackle that I couldn't remove without stripping
the warmth from the recording. Enjoy.

- Big thanks to Jason (Freekjazz) For the sources and derek M for the transfer.

- Opener for the New Riders Of The Purple Sage

- "Ife" evolved as it was performed during this period: the jaunty ten-note ascending-descending
vamp that was the basis of the studio version of the tune was supplemented (and soon replaced)
by a simpler four-note riff. In 1972 live performances, the tune typically begins with the
slower riff and shifts to the quicker (here the shift occurs at 9:46). By early 1973 the
simpler slower riff replaced it completely."- Credit to Peter Losin, http://www.plosin.com/
