  • Notes:

    - Small clip between El Paso and Loser crossfaded. Set 01 and 02 tapeflips patched with shnid 10534.

    - Crossfade between Man Smart... and Ship Of Fools.

    - This is a great, full sounding pull of a historic show. Many thanks to Mark for capturing it and lending his masters to LMPP to get them out.

    Tapers Notes:

    - Jaime built the mic mixer and we all taped from the free throw line on the floor at the Oakland Auditorium. The mic's went from the mixer into my Sony TC-D5M. There was also a patch bay, but I don't remember how many decks were plugged in. I went to 10 New Years runs / shows from 1977 to 1990 and the 1981 run was my favorite.
