BRUFORD
Chicago 1979 [A Goody Speed/Pitch-adjusted Remaster, 1CD]

Live at Park West, Chicago, IL; July 27, 1979. Very good WXRT-FM broadcast.

English musician Bill Bruford first gained prominence as a founding member of Yes. After his departure from Yes, Bruford spent the rest of the 1970s recording and touring with King Crimson [1972-1974] and Roy Harper [1975], and touring with Genesis [1976] and UK [1978]. In 1978, he formed his own group (Bruford), which was active until 1980. In the 1980s, Bruford returned to King Crimson for three years [1981-1984], and formed his own electric jazz band Earthworks in 1986. Bruford played in King Crimson for his third (and final) tenure from 1994-1997. On 1 January 2009, Bruford retired from public performance, barring one private gig in 2011. In 2016, Rolling Stone magazine ranked Bruford No. 16 in its list of the “100 Greatest Drummers of All Time”. - wikipedia

Thanks to goody for sharing the show at Dime.

Goody’s notes:

It appears that the source of this edition may have been slightly edited to remove announcers or radio IDs now and again. It’s also possible that the source was mastered before it fell into my hands. The speed/pitch was off by irregular small amounts and has been adjusted. Wow & flutter in the source has also been virtually eliminated. There is a detectable low pulsing hum at times (or possibly throughout) that isn’t bothersome when the music plays over it (i.e. - mostly…). I’ve chosen not to treat that, as my so doing would have also served to carve out a large portion of the low end frequency of all the instruments.

If a nigger is not happy bout something, just start crying get those bobblehead spooks to start making noise and the jew media caves in.

  41. Sorry guys , been busy the last few days . Antichrist, derrick, black apes who go missing are a good thing , fewer apes is always a good thing. It is sad about Gabby Petito . The boyfriend is guilty as sin . The parents are enablers. This girl lived with that family for two years , but apparently didn’t matter to those scumbags when it came to protecting their son.
