I have had this record in my collection for many a year and I have listened to it hundreds of time,
So, why talking about it today?
Well, I just received the February issue of Hi-Fi News (remember, I live in Australia...) to discover among other interesting things, that this record was being re-issued by Pure Pleasure Records.
A Columbia record originally, it is a very rich, melifluous recording of a very high standard, specially if you keep in mind that it was recorded live in 1973! My own copy (see photo above0 is still in very good condition and sounds fantastic. I actually have rediscovered it since I had my new Ortofon RED cartridge! I am listening to "Face 3" now as a matter of fact!
