**********************************************************

So then, here's the great, GREAT concert from Sonny in Arnhem 1967. I tried doing some remastering but found the result not worthy enough, so what I seed here is just a fixed version (without duplications, one-channel-dropouts etc. - see notes for details), but with the same general sound as the previous re-seed, and in fact as the original seed I got it from.

This has been re-seeded by nocturnalnph a few days ago here, consider this an update for all the corrections, but as I said, not for sound:

***************************************************************************************

In short:

* sound is fair enough! *
* Sonny is effin' hotter than hot! *
* Bennink is smokin'! *
* bass is audible, too! *
* THIS IS A MUST HAVE! *

Notes:
- CD1#2 came as "Four - Don't Stop the Carnival", but it's mainly "Four" with Sonny quoting various other tunes in a free-flowing improvisation
- CD1#3 was followed by an incomplete version of CD2#1, the intro was longer on CD1#3, I spliced that onto CD2#1 and deleted the rest
- CD2#3 came as just "Three Little Words" - I am not sure if there are two or just one other tunes following or what they are.

Thanks for that correction - there's a fight going on and I didn't notice the "wrong" party got the old/"right" address...

hello ubu,

I have been searching for these Sonny Rollins & Han Bennink recordings for ages, so I'm very happy that you have posted them.

However the problem now is that dimeadozen doesn't accept new members at the moment, so I'm not able to download hem. Which, off course is very frustrating, now that I have found them at your site.

Is there another way to get them?
Is it possible to post them at: https://www.yousendit.com/
or at http://www.rapidshare.com/

Or can you contact me so that we can talk about another possibility to get them?

My email is xorluc@xs4all.nl

All the best,

Luc Houtkamp
