I got this disc from a very kind person a few years back but the sound is terrible, you can hardly make out anything but the guitar and a little bit of vocals outside of all the mic overloading that occurs on the tape. I was told the version I have was sourced from a very high generation, and that is the reason for the sound.

I was wondering if anyone had a low generation source of this concert that sounds more decent then the version I have.

Would you mind sharing the version you have?

Would be nice to have it, even if its not the best available source and someone might find an update looking through the torrents. :)

since there is already a lossless version out there, I don't want to get create another file set from the cd I got in trade.

Yeah, I'd rate my version the same if it's talking about recording quality. However, it's still precious to me because I was at this show.

Well, as I was up against the stage, stage-left, all I could hear was Jimi (just like I was at the LA Forum in '69), so it is quite different than the recording somewhat.

As you may know the Swing Auditorium is no longer there, as a small plane crashed into on September 11, 1981 and it had to be removed

A few years ago there was a punk rock riot at the replacement building called the Orange Pavillion. In the aftermath a local newspaper writer tried to quell the resultant public outrage by writing this article which mentions how Jimi's performance was marked by riots outside by kids who couldn't get in to the show:

Thought at the time it was just the pig's method for hastening our departure. Wasn't 'till much later I learned of any 'rioting'. It always was a mystery to me why acts, that at the time were filling large arenas and stadiums, would play such small venues. Also recall going there to see Yes (the opener for) and Black Sabbath. Talk about an 'odd couple'.
