    Would that have been with the orchestra? As long as this isn't bootleg quality, I'm all over it.

    i am guessing that it is a different source and on works live peter gunn, tiger, watching over you, maple leaf rag and the introduction are from the fall '77 shows, without the orchestra. i was at msg for the july orchestra show on the second night and the wnew 10th anniversary concert in october '77 without the orchestra and the above songs were played at the wnew show. so i don't think in concert/works live was just the olympic stadium show.

    Yikes, another shoddy bit of redundant ELP product being released. No Hoedown or Tarkus, why bother? No amount of remastering or sonic trickery is ever going to make that show sound great, what's the point?

    I know that ELP and other bands of that era were in a period where it was expensive and difficult to film concerts and even just doing soundboard recordings to a 16-track was a minor miracle (see: the new King Crimson boxset), but there's no excuse for the way ELP's archive is handled. All those shitty "Best Of" packages that don't include Tarkus or all of Karn Evil 9 but do include stuff from Black Moon; the "bootlegs" which sounded better on the bootlegs I bought in the early 80's etc. Sure, the rights to them are a bit of a mess, but still.

    I'd be willing to be trained by a professional archivist like Phish's Kevin Shapiro if ELP wants to offer me a job.

    Some of the best-sounding recordings I have are bootlegs and far surpass official releases. And, they don't have all the overdubs.

    There's one Grateful Dead show from March 73 where I think the audience tape sounds better than the soundboard tape (because the old soundboard tape that circulated for years had this weird hum on it).
