Comments: The quality of set the Controls, Saucer and Instellar is a bit less than the rest of the package.

This is the same stuff as on the Smoking Blues roio however its not a direct copy I believe. Firstly AD has a few extra seconds of introduction on this version and also the sound is different. There is more hiss on this release however it is not very much and only audible in the very quite sections. However Montreux Casino sounds clearer and brighter than Smoking Blues which leads me to believe that Smoking Blues was dehissed which often results in a loss in high end. Also on this release we get an audience source from the same two shows and well as some BBC tracks the aud source is pretty poor but still interesting. So I'd say that this release is better than Smoking Blues and although the extra tracks are not up to much there better than nothing at all which is what you get on Smoking Blues plus the packaging is one of the best I've ever seen on a roio. -GREEN MAN
