PACO DE LUCIA SEXTET
Seville 1986 [no label, 2CD]
Live at the IV Bienal de Arte Flamenco, Patio de la Montería, Real Alcázar, Seville, Spain; September 30, 1986. Good to very good FM broadcast, slight hiss.
Thanks to original uploader hardboiled and to bluesy81 for keeping the show alive at Dime.
The tape was recently unearthed during a clearout. The torrent has been upped more to fill a gap in the historical record than as an audiophile experience, as the audio quality suffers in some parts from radio distortion - it is possible that someone with more experience than mine in using filters could upgrade it; please feel free. In the absence of a published setlist, my identification of the tracks/palos is non-authoritative.
FM radio broadcast, Radio Popular (Sevilla)
