Basel 2017 [no label, 1CD]

Baloise Session. Event Halle Messe Basel, Basel, Switzerland; October 31, 2017. Very good audio (ripped from HDTV broadcast).

Thanks to joe2005 for sharing the HDTV broadcast at Dime.

The Earth Band combines the stylistic approach of progressive rock with Manfred Mann’s jazz-influenced Moog synthesizer playing and keen ear for melody. Beside producing their own material, a staple of the band’s music and live performances from the beginning has been also relying on covers of songs by other modern pop/rock artists, notably Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, in their progressive rock style. - wikipedia

  7. TDC et al, I’ve been using the Opera browser for downloading for years and there are no issues. I second Sloop John B’s comment as to why this is happening recently.
