Sam Rivers - Philadelphia 1972 & NYC 1978

A pair shows I shared previously ... just stumbled over the files, and the timing is right, since Rivers' 90th birthday took place just three days ago. He is being missed.

The vibes player in the 1972 show is being identified as Thurman Barker now:

That, of course, makes perfect sense!

And the date, usually given as Jan 1, 1972, is really just 1972 - I just updated the files and re-packed them to reflect this.

That '78 show is outstanding. Thanks for posting.

I had some trouble unpacking the '72 show, though.
