Thanks. I seem to have missed this one back when. It would be nice if they'd rebroadcast these since it seems SWR has upped the bitrate since 2006.

Nick said...

very nice. Thank you for these!

Priceless. Thank you very much.

Karl Berger here:
The bass player was not Bo Stief but J.F.Jenny-Clark, who was the bassist in Complete Communion.
Bo played with us in Copenhagen only, when J.F. could not come with us from Paris.

"Priceless" is right, because these are bootlegs.

Thanks for chiming in with this additional info, Mr. Berger!

As for the freeloading ... I know, it's a difficult topic. I hope though that most others that do collect these radio and live recordings do the same as I do - and that is: buy official music all the time, and attend as many concerts as possible (and buy music from artists at shows, knowing that way the really profit from sales).
