Title: Whiskey A-Go-Go, 27 March 1972
Label: Klondike 5006

Anyone get this CD yet? Curious about the sound quality, & if this is a legit CD or a semi-boot. Says it's remastered from FM broadcast, but never heard of the label, so not sure. Googled around and haven't found any real reviews. Thanks in advance if you know, you know :mrgreen: .

Got it the other day. Not sure how it compares to the ones on the traders circuit, but I'd grade it as a B quality, more or less a glorified bootleg "aka" grey release. Whoever remastered it from the FM source didn't try very hard, sounds like it came from an AM broadcast. I've heard better, and a lot worse as far as live CDs of this nature. Not really worth $17, more like $10.
That said the performance is outstanding, and pretty cool hearing JM speak between songs. Haven't collected any MO boots, just seen what's on youtube, and the only other live MO recording I own is "Between Nothingness..."

Between Nothingness.. was professionally recorded, you know, planned for album. Whiskey wasn't - just from an FM broadcast. Definitely not remastered from the original tapes, no matter what they say. I've heard '70s FM broadcasts that sound much better.
