So, what can I say about this CD? Musically, I'm very happy with the almost flawless performance of Bruford, Stewart, Berlin and Clark. They are successful in bringing the studio tracks into more lively nuances.
However, the "fading out" technology has erupted my respect, overall, to this live recording. For a great fan of Bruford's previous studio albums, it's a big regret. It's not professional at all to cut the songs it happens two times in this live record. I hate it! If all songs are presented in full, I would rate this live recording with four stars; but with this condition I would only give three stars maximum.
As for the readers, be careful if you consider buying this CD. If you have no issue at all with "cutting off" song, then it's OK. On recording quality, it's OK but it would be better is some more bass sound is added. Keep on Progging! Progressively Yours, GW - Indonesia. Come over to my country and do your gigs down here.. All the members of the band are very good, of course, but Bruford, and more particularly bassist Jeff Berlin do amazing things with their instruments in this album.
Dave Stewart also shows creativity playing those "old" synths from the late seventies. The cover design of this album looks more like a cover design for a "bootleg" than for an official live album, IMO. Despite being a very good band, this band was going to split after recording another studio album, called "Gradually Going Tornado".
In his official website, Bill Bruford described this in the "Timeline" section, saying that his then management company E. There are two main problems with this release that could probably have been distinguished from my introduction.
The sound of the radio broadcast of the late '70s leaves a lot to be desired of. I don't have a problem of distinguishing the individual performances but everyone who wants to hear a well recorded performance by this band is bound to find this recording lacking in the sound department.
The second flaw is much less substantial and concerns the inclusion of John Clark who does an excellent job of handling Holdsworth's duties but I think that it would have been nice to have a live recording where Allan Holdsworth had performed his guitar parts.
The encore number is Five G , here shortened to 5G , and it once again manages to do a great job although the sound quality does lower the performance down a notch for me. Overall The Bruford Tapes serves as a nice companion to the first two Bruford albums. Still I can only recommend this recording to people who are already familiar with these compositions.
