Another amazing piece from Dandelion. The aesthetics and vintage photos in the 16 page booklet are incredible. The Leeds demos are pristine. They have been digitally remastered to perfection. There are a couple of oversights, however. The Bear broadcast from Chicago 1963 has been edited so that the music remains, but gone is the in-between song comments. This important piece of history should have been left intact. There are also more tracks available of the Carnegie Chapter Hall. Why just these two? Obviously, the intent was to jam pack this CD with as much music as possible. Many will see this as a good thing. Purists will choke on the editing. It is a very worth-while CD, though.
