    hansokolow's notes: Problems exist on both sources. The DAUD is often drowned in crowd noise, especially in set 1, and the SBD is fairly muddy and there are a lot of effects present on the voices, giving this a very boomy feel. Which is a lot what the Richfield Coliseum is like (a concrete cave), but it's even present on the soundboard. Nevertheless, this show has personal meaning, as I attended the night before, driving from my studies at Oberlin College, and there was much discussion at the time as to whether to go to the Friday night, Vince's first show, or this one, a Saturday night show. I opted for the previous night (I could only afford a ticket for one night), which was not nearly as good as this night, but it didn't matter because I overloaded with many drugs in the lot, and I was confused and ill for much of that show. On the following night (this show), everyone who went came back beaming, mostly because of this beautifully paced Eyes. There was an awful lot of sadness about Brent and anticipation about what the band might do. In both shows, so many songs had resonance and meaning. Brent, you are still missed.

    I removed Charlie's patches, which are listed above, those sections are only this DAUD. That means that the second half of the encore is DAUD only. The taper apparently cut the tape soon after the end of NFA, then started again back up again midway through the NFA crowd chant. The SBD also cuts out around the same place, so I added fades.
