This concert wasn't professionally recorded. The recording here was made by my dad, from the audience, with a cassette tape recorder. This, combined with the fact that the cassette was nearly four decades old when this digital-audio transfer was made, means that the audio quality is not good. Not only is there background noise, there are occasional audio dropouts where the tape may have degraded, particularly in the left audio channel.
But still, this is the only recording I have of this concert.
