Total Time ::: 34:59

::: EXC quality, super stereo FM broadcast. Check samples for personal trials & tribulations.
::: Warts: Very, very slight hum & distortion. Dull spots were mostly rapairable but actual dropouts difficult due to extreme stereo imaging. I definitely did not get 'em all!
::: (*) My tape said 1972-11-15?. It circulates as 1972-11-15 but the excellent Whisky list at shows NO America appearance ever & Nov. 15-18, 1972 as Sylvester & The Hot Band, Hemlock featuring Miller Anderson. The Whiskey had many unannounced bands, but since America did early & late shows the evening of this recording, I'm not sure what's up.

CoolSonics 175 ::: Thanks to the original taper & traders! ::: Corrections welcome ::: Pulling out something else & found this. Seems to upgrade matters somewhat. Enjoy!
