    Hansokolow's Notes:
    The SBD has a fair amount of crackle and pops here and there. I fixed some of it. Crowd noise missing oon the SBD between Desolation Row and Birdsong. In set 2 the right and left channels appear to be switched on the AUD, so I reversed them to match the SBD. Quite a lot of separation between R and L on both of these recordings. If you don't mind splitting the nice little segue between Crazy Fingers and Women Are Smarter, you could fit this on two discs. There was a tapeflip gap on the SBD in Space from 4:20 to 4:32. Some track breaks on the SBD needed some space added to match the DAUD, as if a small bit was missing. I tried to smooth over these breaks, but since there's a fair amount of hiss on the SBD, the momentary absence of that hiss makes it noticeable. Both sources had a fadeout during the break before the encore, I there wasn't any overlap, so here the DAUD fades out, and then the SBD fades immediately in, with the DAUD coming back a little later. This is all crowd and tuning, no music is affected.

    I saw this show with my dad and step-mom, and my step-mom and I took acid. She had a nice, easy time of it, though she hadn't tripped in maybe twenty years, while I went into it confident, yet had a deep, mind-expanding experience, which was far from easy. My main memory was that at some point during Space, I saw the Goddess in the room, swirling overhead. That's how I remember it, anyway. It was also pretty intense when they played my first Dark Star.
