    I assume there are better audience recordings of this show, but I got tired of waiting for one of them to appear. This was recorded by the same crew that did the recent seeds of the 01/07/78 San Diego show and the 01/11/78 LA show. I just love the sound of Cipollina on this recording, so I'm cuttin' it loose. If you got a better, bring it on.

    The sound is a little distant and quiet at the beginning, but it gets better as the show goes on. It was hard to hit a good balance between the delicate, quiet parts and the ragingly hot parts, but I did my best. You can hear a bit of noise in the really quiet parts due to the analog generations.

    There are flaws. The deck was stopped or paused between many songs, which accounts for some of the odd little tuning/crowd tracks. I tried to clean these up a bit, but I didn't want to get into a lot of fancy editing just for that. Plus, I think that fewer crossfades might make it easier in case somebody out there wants to have a crack at a matrix (HINT, HINT). Ollin Arageed cuts in, I don't know how much is missing. There's a cut in Ollin Arageed at about 11:18. I left it alone. The sound goes monaural in Ollin Arageed @ about 13:15 though 14:00 due to a temporary silence in the right channel. There was a brutal tape flip at about 30 seconds into Not Fade Away. I did a crossfade to minimize the pain.
