Lost for over a decade, and damaged in a fire, the tapes were recovered and have been digitally restored. Preserving a historical moment in Jazz history, the Collector's Edition reunites these two sets exactly as they were recorded in 1985. The end result is a bird's eye view of Buddy and the Buddy Rich Band at the climax of a legendary career. Added to the original shows are bonus tracks, interviews, behind the scenes footage, clips of Buddy from the Johnny Carson Show and rare photos from the Rich family archives. New to this package is Steve Smith's commentary on Channel One and a 16-page booklet filled with photos and remembrances. At 67 years old, this performance shows Buddy at his best. This collection is a must have for any Buddy Rich fan and music fan alike. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
