EU two CD live archive release containing a complete previously unreleased Dave Brubeck concert from Manchester. Taped around February 20, 1958, this is the first existing recording by the classic quartet with Paul Desmond, Gene Wright and Joe Morello (Wright had only joined the group the previous month). Among its many highlights are versions of tunes rarely recorded by the group, like 'Watusi Drums', 'One Moment Worth Years', and 'The Wright Groove', as well as a marvelous 'St. Louis Blues', a short reading of 'God Save The Queen', and the only version of 'Audrey' by the classic quartet.
