Lineage:Pre-FM ABC Radio Supergroups In Concert broadcast vinyl LP's>CD-R>Roxio CD Spin Doctor (tracking only)>xACT>FlacWrite-up:If you love the Moodies, you have to have this concert/interview set. How can anyone resist a professional, quality soundboard of an unreleased performance? The concert is complete, and the entire broadcast was left intact, with brief interviews interspersed with less brief chunks of concert. It was a treat for me, because there's so few Moody boots from this era, and while this recording is not a perfect mix, it's pretty clean and will easily blow away any audience recording you might find. The vinyl was luckily in pretty good shape for it's age, despite a scary-looking water stain that was on it's outer box. It smelled like an old trunk full of musty books.I carefully cleaned these with my Groovmaster cleaning kit to remove any possible molding. This has become a very pleasant ritual for me, as my turntable and receiver are now 2 years older than this record set, and I still find myself buying it gifts. :-)The cue sheet that came with these discs explains how the set was only loaned to radio stations for 24 hours. Roughly 200 radio stations were selected for a one-time broadcast on Saturday, June 14, 1979 to play from 8-10 pm local time. Subsequent rebroadcasts must have occurred, since this set is marked with the single broadcast date of June 21st, 1980. In the 90's a set like this went for prices in the hundreds of dollars, and included promo photos, a press release and print ads along with the cue sheet and broadcast log.
