As one can guess by looking at the title of this blog, recordings shared here are usually captured after passing through a sound board, be it a direct connection or an FM broadcast. Normally this gives us better sound quality than any recording done by someone from the public with amateur/limited equipment.
All this to tell you that today's share is not a normal audience recording, it is an exception, in fact it is exceptional and I thank our friend anonymous for bringing us this jewel which as I knew existed but never listened before.

Silver Rarities (Liberated) 3-disc set
AUDIENCE Recording, 8/10
6/21/1977 from the L.A. Forum
Source: Original Silver CD--> X Lossless Decoder--> FLAC
I got this 3-disc set about 15 years ago. Great quality for an audience recording, but I expect nothing less from a Mike Millard source tape. Ever heard of him? Look up his Wikipedia entry - his method for getting such great quality recordings was unbelievable. I know there are a lot of "Mike the Mike" LA 1977 recordings out there - and I can't speak for the others, but this one is about as close to 100% complete as I've heard. There's a couple cuts, likely due to tape flips. 10 yrs gone is affected, but still over ten minutes. This is in FLAC format. Sorry for there being so many parts, but it's because it's lossless. I also just scanned my CD covers this week because I wasn't happy with what I found online. This is an excellent show and it's close to 3 hours long. The band is having a great time and the crowd is really into the show.
