Weather Report: “Birdland” Live in 1980 (Remastered)

I stumbled upon a newly remastered version of Weather Report’s live performance in Belgrade on October 31, 1980.

Jaco Pastorius is on fretted bass on this one, with the band tearing through “Birdland”, with Jaco’s “Liberty City” in the middle of the tune.

    Man, Zawinul really got short shrift from the videographers, though the video is so blurry you can hardly see anyone. The audio is good though, that must have been the focus of the remaster. Surely if they had access to the original tapes they would have eliminated the ‘zipper’ cross fades and improved the video quality.
