This is part of the Mona Lisa's Sister tour, actually this is a back by popular demand
show since Parker had just played the Metro club in Boston about a month before this show.
he mentions playing 4 nights at the Paradise club in 1979
I think this was near the end of the tour, and this recording is the entire concert,
with all the radio announcer encore break and closing commentary, and almost all of the
opening radio announcer babble.
The only tape flip interruption is between songs after track 12,
I've spliced it so you may not even notice it's there since this is a seamless recording
(no fadeins/outs).
The broadcast was clean that night, no interference or problems, and my tape has
probably only been played maybe 3 or 4 times since I recorded it, so it still sounds
like I recorded it last week. Hard to believe it was 28+ years ago...
how time flies when, oh well, even when you're not having fun (and your airplane has no left wing)...
  This can be broken with disc 2 staring with track 20, which makes a 73:20 1st disc,
but I recommend starting disc 2 with track 17, which makes a 1st disc of 64:26.
Either way will work fine, this recording is seamless (no fadeins or fadeouts for disc breaks).
