  • IMHO this source is better than any circulating version of this show. This version is a fresh transfer of master tapes that were recorded on a well cared for NAK 550. Although this is a 16.1/44 transfer I believe the superior bass response and ability to handle Phil Bombs of the Nak 550 make this the best version of this show, even surpassing the recent 24/96 MOTB transfer of a D5 master. I am curious to see if others agree. If the opportunity arises I will get a 24/48 transfer off the masters but for now it is what it is. I forgot to split The Other One and GDTRFB so for now I have left them as one track.
