ZOSO is retiring…

I have been almost completely inactive for over a year now. I have decided to focus only on my other blog, PurpleHippies.com.

In the very near future, the content of ZOSO.me will be hidden… Not deleted, but hidden. I am keeping the domain name, and leaving open the possibility that I will bring the site back, when I have more time and energy to devote to running the site actively.

“Site Repairs” in Progress…

Many visitors to this site have encountered corrupt .rar files… I am in the process of checking all archive files, and replacing the bad files.

So far, I have updated 1977, 1979 and 1980… I am currently working on 1971…

In general, the corruption happened during the creation of the original .rar files (possibly due to hard drive issues, or perhaps WinRAR issues). Too avoid future problems, I now add a recovery record and test all new .rar files.

As far as sound quality goes, this one is very listenable, but definitely nowhere near commercial release quality. As of the date at the end of this file, this is the only source/generation of this show I have heard, so I can’t say as to whether this is the best or worse sounding release of this show. It is a great performance from the guys, nonetheless. If you like the Zep Japan shows, this one is definitely worth a listen.

The show came package in non-standard CD package that is much like a book (very professional job). I have provided scans of the main cover, the disc labels, and one of the inserts. The package also came with a little booklet with pictures and text (all in Japanese). I have not included scans of the booklet, as it was more trouble than it is worth. Don’t get me wrong, the booklet is alright, but nothing special (but I didn’t buy it for the packaging alone). Enjoy.
