This is a four album set of vinyl broadcast discs used to distribute the King Biscuit Flower Hour to radio stations affiliates in the USA for weekly broadcasts. Long sought after by Zeppelin & Plant fans alike, only part of this short series has been available from the broadcast tapes until now. The quality you'll hear here surpasses that of previous "leaks" of the SBD material, especially the definition of the high frequencies.

Does anybody remember.... dynamics? The range on this recording is spectacular - nice and open - no clipping.

Absolutely ZERO compression, limiting or EQ applied to this transfer. This is CLEAN.
The only thing I did to this was meticulously remove any noticeable pops or crackles. I did NOT just run a generic pop filter on the entire set of audio, as that usually harms the recording in an unpleasant way.

This set runs as the broadcast did, with one exception: I removed all but one Honda Shadow commercial (they were all exactly the same and played at EVERY break). All other commercials are left in place. This entire transfer is precisely tracked so you can easily skip parts you don't want to hear. There are 43 tracks total, filling 3CDs.
