Here's an interesting one for all of the Firm and Jimmy Page fans. I dug this one out of the whotrader archives and I was really impressed with the jamming at the end of the session. The tape was just marked 'Rehearsals 1984' with no location or any other information. I don't think I've heard the Firm play the blues much, but there's plenty of blues action during the last 20 minutes or so of this recording. The performance is great!! Unfortunately, this recording has a hum/hiss due to a higher generation or crappy transfer (ala boombox). However, I wanted to put this up because I think it might be rare and I'm really hoping that someone will share an upgrade with us all."
