Re-Upped : 17 Herbie Hancock live shows from the 1970s

This is just to let you know that I've re-upped the 17 Herbie Hancock concerts from the 1970s at the Herbie Hancock 53 Live Bootlegs post from 2008.

Several links there have been replaced with lossless WAV versions as well.

Unfortunately I don't have the time to track down all of the post-1981 concert links, which are almost all dead, but contributions would be very welcome.

The Ultrasonic Studios concert from 1973 has had more downloads than anything I've ever posted here, it's a great show.

Anyway check them out.
