The basement tape material has been available for several years now. It should be a part of all serious collections... although the venue was never a favorite of mine. It has been released in better quality than this, but it has also come out in inferior quality. This is acceptable. If you have no Basement material... try it out. If for no other reason, this piece deserves a mention for the great cover, which is an alternate from the Reid Miles session that produced the official cover photo.
