When Absolutely Live was released on CD in 1991 fans were disappointed that the beautiful colour cover of the 1970 release was replaced by a bland B/W pile of crap. Added to that it had been amalgamated with Alive She Cried and called In Concert.
It wasn't until 1996 that we saw the release of a real Absolutely Live but once again another bland B/W cover adorned the release. Added to that the booklet was covered with photos of Jim with the band just appearing on the back cover.
When I first got on the Net I saw Dutch fan, Fred Baggen's worthy attempts to get a proper release. To date no CD of Absolutely live in the original art has been released, just the collectors LPs seen above.
