Huh. I missed the boat on this one. Never heard of these leaked crew 77 shows. Never paid much attention to Cleveland as I had a pretty bad copy of that show back in the 80s. I had heard something about one tape from '78, Winterland 12/16, that it was supposedly recorded with mics by the crew (or it was overhead mics from the broadcast the previous night). Sounded good, but not that good, so I didn't really believe that to be the case. Then again, my copy was certainly far from the master.
This makes me wonder if one of the very well recorded shows in mid-July 78, (Houston or New Orleans ?), is a crew source as well since there was very little mic movement as you'd expect from a AUD back in the day, and fairly uniform crowd noise. But there was a well known taper from NO IIRC that could have been the source. Any insight on those?
So is the EV2 Return to the Bombscare from this crew AUD? Are these sources in circulation?
Thanks, as always!
