Th3e one made by my friend - certainly. The other one must have been
recorded from a cassette - I got that cassette in Edinburgh in the
eighties. The, when I asked the bandleader in 2001 whether he had any
CDs for sale, ge gave me that one. It contains the same material, and
the picture on the cover is also the same, but distorted by adjustment
to the wider CD.
How it was recorded I would not know.
