Another great Steve Lacy snipet, plenty of radio static at certain points ... great music though and certainly worth a listen...

In 1977, the Steve Lacy Quintet was invited to West-Berlin to take part in the Workshop Freie Musik, lasting from 7.4.77 to 11.4.77. So for this concert in East-Berlin, the band apparently made a little excursion when having a day off from the Workshop.
It was during this festival, more precisely on the last day, that they recorded the beautiful "Follies"-LP for FMP/SAJ. There's also a short radio broadcast recording from 8.4.1977 circulating (sounding seriously lo-fi!).
