    apparently these originally came from this Blog:

    But I can find no mention of them on there now. This text was said to be part of the post:

    “This is the first time that these recordings have been released. The original reels came from “A French Gentleman” who stumbled upon the various Magma blogs and who, as it turned out, had seen Magma several times in the 1970’s. The gentleman not only had some assorted photographs, but had recorded various concerts. These tapes made their way to a well known DIME contributor who wishes to remain anonymous at this time. This person spent quite a bit of time digitizing the music and trying to clean up the sound. Some of these efforts were successful, some were not so … as will be apparent in some later releases. I have dubbed these recordings “The French Gentlemen Tapes”, and after about two years, I have been given permission to share these through time. Much thanks go to the Gentleman, as well as Trahnsferheur.”
