GFR was an excellent band throughout the 1970's. But as with many bands, things fell apart before the 1970's ended. However, some band members have rejoined in years spanning since the 1970's and have played tours. I even saw them on 2001-10-21 at the Volunteers For America concert in Dallas and I recorded their short set too. Maybe one day I'll upload that set and a few other artist that were a part of the 9/11 victim's families benefit event.

The audio in this show unfortunately doesn't have a lot of high frequencies present in the recording. The waveform shows no clipping, but at the same time it is almost maxed out where a good EQ'ing job would require some real TLC. There is not a lot of room to try and manipulate the high frequency range without causing audio clipping. But there are ways of doing it if someone wanted to.
The Japanese crowd sounds really excited that the band is playing in Nagoya. I didn't realize they were that popular in Japan. But as history has shown, the Japanese people like good music and they get really good recordings many times too.
This recording has it's flaws but from listening to it in the past I remember it is a great show with the possibility of being made into a better sounding show.
This show was on the same day Led Zeppelin was finishing up their 1975 tour with their second night out of five in Earl's Court also.
I hope you enjoy the show...
