  • The tape was flipped during Franklins Tower (disc 2 track 2 at 6:51).
    The tape was again flipped in the Space > Not Fade Away transition (disc 3 track 4 at 0:12).
    These breaks were spliced together with NERO wave editor.
    NERO wave editor was also used to make volume adjustments and to surgically remove distracting claps one at a time.
    Finally Audacity was used to dither the files to 16 bit and then the FLAC conversion was performed at level 8.
    As a note, the Sony ecm-280 cardiod microphone specification page describes the frequency response as 30 to 18KHz.
    No Eq or Noise reduction used.
    There is a slight fluttering noise in the master cassettes during the quieter sections.
    Thanks to John Musgrave for the use of his recording equipment.
    Thanks to Bill Fridl for the permission to use his nice photos from these shows
