"Zombies in the Storm"
The very good and famous recording of Orleans, 15th June 1977, freshly upgraded.
This is most probably a soundboard recording, but I would rate the sound only 7,5/10 (not excellent). Nevertheless, it's a must have for every Magma fan because it contains many unreleased track, and most notably the famous long version of Zombies, unavailable on any other boot.

what was done in this upgrade :
- right / left balance corrected on all tracks
- severe volume fluctuations were on many tracks. All have been repaired, sometimes using patches from other parts of the song
- an annoying cut in the middle of Zombies (long version - or Ehmenthett Ré II as it is now known) have been repaired, without losing any music.
- 2 cuts were on MDK. A bit of music was lost because of the first cut (at approx 14 min) so I did my best to remove it while having a seamless performance, but connoisseur will notice a transition that is not on the original composition - but that's better than having a hole. The second one was a cut with overlaps, so there was no difficulty to remove this one.
