An Old Grey Whistle Test episode from 1975 featuring Billy Cobham's Band recorded at the Rainbow Theater on July 13, 1974. Great filming and great performances. Audio quality is excellent. There is an occasional shake/shimmy in the video and a couple of very brief drop-outs. Other than that this looks to be only a generation or 2 from master/broadcast quality. My only complaint is that its only 2 tunes . . . But these 2 are MONSTERS!

Adequate menu and chapters for both songs.
