This is an excellent-quality stereo tape of Billy Joel and an unnamed group playing a set at Philadelphia's famous Sigma Sound studio on April 15, 1972. It sounds like the first generation. There's no indication of it being a dub, or that any modifications were made to it before it was posted to Usenet.
I ran automatic phase correction on it, and fixed the track splits to occur at the start of a song, rather than several seconds before it begins, or in some cases, after they had already started playing. No other adjustments were made.
According to legend, it was a Philadelphia station playing the live rendition of "Captain Jack" from this performance that brought Billy Joel to the attention of Columbia Records.
