This is straight from the mastertape. The only editing I did was that in the first 21 seconds of the Track 1 the right channel had static, so I pasted in a bit from the left channel. I have not done any other editing, EQing, filtering, or any kind of tampering with the sound.

Orchestra conducted by William "Bill" Conti. From Wikipedia: " American composer and conductor best known for his film scores, including Rocky (and all but one of the five sequels), For Your Eyes Only, and The Right Stuff, the latter of which earned him an Academy Award for Best Original Score." 

draftervoi's original notes: 
Chicago SuperGroups In Concert was the first "SuperGroups" syndicated broadcast on May 12, 1979. The show was pressed on three LPs, but only five sides had music. The sixth side is blank. The cue sheet lists the show as a production of American Broadcasting Companies. There's an ad in Billboard on Aug. 18, 1979 that says 300 ABC stations carried the show, so that may be a good guess as to how many copies of this show were pressed. 

The Chicago disc labels are numbered with the catalog number OCC 101. The next SuperGroups show I've identified is Foreigner, which used the code OCC and either 201 or 203 (I've seen both listed, so consider that number unconfirmed). The Foreigner show was identifed as broadcast on May 19, 1979 but is not mentioned in the Billboard ad... 

...which says the next show in the series was the Moody Blues. With the Moody Blues show, the series used a different code: The Moody Blues were SGC 101, followed by the Allman Brothers SGC 102, Peter Frampton SGC 103, the Cars SGC 104, Blondie SGC 105, Cheap Trick SGC 106, Journey SGC 107 and Alice Cooper SGC 108. 

The earliest of these shows were distributed in boxes, with similar cover designs. The background of each box was a solid color covered in a pattern of dots, with the artist's name on the front and the show credits on the back. The cue sheets were printed on premium paper, and the discs housed in plastic-lined disc sleeves. Occasionally they "themed" the color of the box: The Moody Blues box is blue, and Blondie is yellow. 

The original SuperGroups format had live concerts interspersed with short interviews, and no commercials. A "SuperGroups Theme Song" played at the beginning and end of the show. At least two of the shows (Foreigner and Alice Cooper) combined previously unreleased live material with several "faked" tracks from studio albums overdubbed with audience noise. 

Sometime in 1980 they dropped the premium presentation (boxes, cue sheets, disc liners) and added prerecorded commercials. Disc labels switched to a solid color - I've seen red, yellow, and silver used, and the numbering system was discontinued. Some of these are listed as "produced by D.I.R. Broadcasting Corp. for Super Groups In Concert" but also carry the ABC name. Spelling of the shows name often shifts from "SuperGroups" to "Super Groups." There was also a series using the Super Groups name called "A Night On The Road," produced by G.K. Productions with ABC. 

This version was digitized from the original syndicated radio discs and declicked in Audacity in September 2014. Included are 300 dpi scans of the front and back cover, a disc label, and all four pages of the cue sheet. Flac files of wavs. The only thing I edited out was the 700 Hz test tone. 

There's another version circulating with "Mongonucleosis" and "Got To Get You Into My Life" but without "I Just Want To Be Free." I haven't heard it, so I don't know if was also a SuperGroups show, an original over-the-air broadcast, syndicated by a different company...or perhaps two versions of the show were produced.

Sixth and final installment of a new batch of Townes recordings fellow dimer traink gave me. He recorded Townes a couple of times in Germany in the ninetees. I saved this uncirculated, master soundboard as the last show to share.

This project is a true team effort: traink provided the tapes and handed them over a few weeks ago at In The Woods. Not only did he give me these Townes tapes, he also included Eric Taylor and Chris Smither. In due time these shows will be shared.

I brought the tapes to reelclasio, who still has working DAT recorders. Moreover he's one of the better tapers of the Netherlands. He did a 16/48 transfer and sent me the raw files and a quickly edited version. Fredtaper did the final editing. I coordinated the project, re-tracked the files, made the setlist and covers. Finally I share the result for all Townes lovers.

Soundboard sourced - flat sound with some hiss but good instrument separation. This circulating audio is only missing the (1 or 2) encore songs that followed “Because The Night”. To start the show the MC announces "They're Off!" in recognition of the Kentucky Derby. Show includes the first known ESB performance of “Sweet Little Sixteen” since 1973. Bruce loses his place during “Rosalita”, which results in an unusual instrumental break until Bruce picks up the song again.

Excellent stereo soundboard recording from one of the best Purple shows in their history, IMO. Very long show and a lot of improvisations. Rarely played in 1993 Blues is included here. Encores comes from very good audience recording from the same show.

Recorded live at Bierhubeli in Bern, Switzerland on November 16, 1997

CD2 04-17
Recorded live at the Barbican Centre (now closed) in York, England on May 12, 1996.

Probably the best quality recording from the European leg of the El Corazón tour. Unfortunately this particular bootleg inexplicably omits one track from the gig (The Other Side Of Town), whilst still finding space for filler from York '96. A complete version of the Bern soundboard circulates under the title of Come Back Woody Guthrie.

Radio RTL Luxembourg used to broadcast a lot of great shows back then. Unfortunately most of them were incomplete, just like this one. This is the line up that also played the live tracks for the Moonflower album. Those tracks were from the London, Paris, Munich and Colmar shows. Super show with great tracks like Dance Sister dance, Revelations and Maria Caracoles. Samba Pa Ti gets a beautiful, more than 10 minutes treatment.

Very strange outtakes from Chorus TV in France.
The band seems to be rehearsing as Six blade knife ends very strange after just having played the intro of the song, but you can hear the audience**** between the tracks. The other songs are complete. The sound is pretty nice, but with some loud parts at some moments.

ALD (assisted listening device) soundboard recordings are usually knocked for their "thin" sound quality (high amount of treble, not enough bass), but I don't think that's a real issue here at all. As such, Jim's files have been unaltered for sound quality (i.e., no EQ performed)--if some of you prefer to have more bass in your ALD recordings, I'll let you do your own EQ work since it then becomes a matter of personal taste. As for me, I think the show sounds great, as-is.

Nice recording which could have a great sound quality but some bad statics/distortions and cuts ruined all this. 
I fixed the majority of them, but some could only be attenuated, anyway now it's much better than it was, in my opinion. 

Fixes applied: 
> track 01: better fade in, removed click at 5.05 
> track 02: removed statics from 4.44 to 4.46 
> smoothed transition from track 02 to 03 
> track 03: removed statics from 4.27 to 4.28 
> track 04: attenuated statics from 6.27 to 6.28 
> track 05: fixed statics/distortions at 2.27, 5.31 
> track 06: fixed distortions at 2.48, 3.36 
> track 08: attenuated statics/distortions from 4.25 to 4.28 
> track 07: at 5.38 added background audience, as it seemed there was a raw cut 
> track 10: at 4.49 smoothed what seemed a raw cut in the audience encore break 
> smoothed transition from track 10 to 11 
> track 11: removed click at 0.19, statics at 4.08 
> smoothed transition from track 11 to 12 
> track 12: fixed bad statics/distortions at 1.14, 1.57-58,2.56-57 and at 3.06 
> track 13: removed click at 3.45

The Gymnasium soundboard tape(s)::

First track to surface from the Gymnasium tape(s) was Guess I'm Falling In Love (supposedly listed as Fever In My Pocket on the original tape box), broadcasted on WPIX FM by John Cale on June 3, 1979. After playing this version he clearly states that it is from a tape he stumbled across. He definitely says "Gymnasium, April 1967". Cale also said in some interviews he owns the tape of the entire Gymnasium show, including Walk It As You Talk It with a really good guitar sound.

Guess I'm Falling In Love [version 1] (4:09)
Sources: And So On LP, Everything You've Ever Heard... 3LP, Collector's Dream CD, The Psychopath's Rolling Stones CD, A True Rock 'n Roller CD, Ultra Rare Trax Vol.3 CD, Caught Between The Twisted Stars 4CD.

Two others tracks surfaced in the 90s - Booker T. orginally appeared on the John Cale Paris S'Eveille CDEP in 1991 and was reissued (unfortunately with 8 seconds amputed at the beginning) on the Peel Slowly And See box set, along with an alternate version of Guess I'm Falling In Love. This version sounds clearly different as compared with the WPIX version and has some lyrics differences (the box set version begins with "I got fever..." while the 'old' version begins with "I got MY fever...").

Guess I'm Falling In Love [version 2] (4:10)
Booker T. (6:38)
Sources: Paris S'Eveille CDEP (2), Peel Slowly And See 5CD (1, 2), A True Rock 'n Roller CD (2).

More material from the Gymnasium recordings is finally issued in February 2008 on the bootleg LP Live At The Gymnasium. According to a source claiming to have a DAT copy of the original tape, it has an additional instrumental version of The Gift (possibly the version of Booker T. released on the PSAS box set?) after Sister Ray.

I'm Not A Young Man Anymore (7:17)
Guess I'm Falling In Love [same as version 2] (4:18)
I'm Waiting For The Man (5:24)
