Recensione album

This CD evidently originates from a fan's home taping of a European radio broadcast of a concert by the Oscar Peterson Trio in Vienna on November 9, 1968. An announcer is briefly heard over the introduction but, other than that, the only flaws occur as the recording level is occasionally overmodulated, resulting in some distortion (but not so much that it is unlistenable).
