This is a great recording of Can from '73 and I am curious to know if it might be from a French radio broadcast as opposed to a straight mixing desk recording. There is a slight tape hiss to it and a few minor audio defects i.e. slight muffling here and there, which to my ears sound the kind of generation artefacts you might expect from analogue copying. It is however a very enjoyable listen, check out the sample. This concert may have appeared on Dime during a flood of Can recordings about two years ago but this is from my source procured about from a dealer circa 2003/4.
