  • Mastering Notes:

    - The second tape starts with multiple flaws in the left channel that roll in and out
    about every 2 seconds. Patching proved to be more invasive than correcting in wavelab
    and leaving minor artifacts so this was the route taken.

    - Tape flips cross faded where applicable


    -This is the firs set of shows with an official tapers section as per Barry Glassberg. Healy roped off an area just in front of the board and gave Barry control over the area. Barry made up stickers to gain entry behind the barricade for the section. Needless to say he invited his friends! They used this for the run. This being said the sound is a little distant yet front of board.

    - Jerry's inaudible until the first chorus in Mississippi Half Step when he is finally turned on.
