    Big thanks to the provider of the MSC's who for various reasons wishes to remain anonymous.
    Levels at the beginning of the first set were generally low for the first minute. I adjusted this post transfer using Wavelab.
    The beginning of "Cumberland Blues" is clipped - I patched the missing 10 seconds from the FOB Schoeps source.
    Brief tape flips occured during non-musical segment between "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" and "Hey Pocky Way" and during "Space" and were crossfaded into audio imperceptibility using Wavelab 5.
    This source does not have any skipping during "Black Muddy River".

    As far as Healy Ultramixes go this one is SWEET - just the right mix of crowd and music.
    Crowd is chanting for Phil before JLTTB - listen for Phil saying "and my best friend my drummer won't tell me what it is that I dropped."
    KILLER performances of "Loser" & "Ramble On Rose".
