  • Original Seeder Notes: This is a poor recording of an excellent but very rare show. I put this out
    in hopes of finding an upgrade or possibly using it to make a matrix with my 1st gen sen 441 aud
    that I have put up. It sounds like it could be a monitor mix at times not all of the instruments are
    there and the crowd is silent in the tape. Very strange when compared to the aud and when
    being in the audience myself. Tons of energy and power that just does come accross on this recording
    Take it for what it's worth. The Mix in general poor editing from cassette to DAT-dead air after Big River and Drums at flips Whitch leads me to belive that the master was a cassete, no reel to reel at the time anyway...HELP!!! send comments to Enjoy!!!

    C.Ladner's remastering comments:
    - there were multiple tiny little micropops throughout the show which I was able to sucessfully remove using Waves X-Crackle and Wavelab 5 without coloring the sound.
    - dead space associated with tape splices removed using Wavelab 5.
    - levels adjusted by + 1.7 dB and mastering using Waves L3 Multimaximizer > tracking into individual tracks (previously Me and My Uncle > Big River and Scarlet > Fire were one long track) and FLAC encoding (level 5) using CDWAV 1.9. No NR or selective frequency augmentation was used.
    -I spliced in the first 8 seconds of the encore (US Blues) from 1st Gen Aud Cass Sen 441> Sony D5 FOB source.

    This is easily the best SBD recording of this performance I have heard (having accumulated half a dozen different digital sources).
