Not the best quality on this title, however, there is most likely no better quality to exist considering the time frame and amateur 1950's equipment. These great historical tapes are interesting in as far as they show the enormous growth spurt in only a year when a kid with a guitar transforms into a folk singer. On a personal note, as bad as it might be, I still get goose bumps when I listen to the East Orange tapes. It was in another lifetime that this was the first bootleg tape I ever owned. : )
