  • - Caveat Emptor: Except for the first four songs, this audience recording
    is not really good.

    - Order rearranged to make the show fit onto 3 CDs. To restore the correct order,
    move D2T10-14 after D3T04.

    - Taper stopped tape at 5:50 in Bird Song thinking the song is finished
    - missing Cold Rain & Snow
    - I Know You Rider cuts
    - Truckin' cuts
    - right channel was very weak for the first minute of Deal; left channel mixed in
    - short cut in Sugar Magnolia
    - tape flip during Drums; the two cassette sides' overlap was cross-faded
    - tape speed corrected by about 3 %
    - levels adjusted
    - tape noise reduced
    - lots of little artefacts smoothed & removed; doubtlessly some still remain

    If you are ready to dig bad audience tapes, this one's for you. In the same league as some of the Europe 72 aud-tapes this show hits bottom end of classification.


    The show starts with a pretty decent way the micro points to the speakers... but after 15 min our beloved taper has either gotten a tired arm, or the xxxxx are finally kicking in. Anyhow, the quality declines from here on and never recovers to the quality of tracks 1-4. It gets utterly painful during Loser, where there is more of a conversation than music on the recording.

    If you will go so far as to lend this show an ear, you get rewarded by a nice PITB, a fine Gone -> Other One Jam, the ever rarely played Rockin P. and the outstanding version of Not Fade Away -> GDTRFB -> NFA [21: min]. Otherwise the show isn't that great, but still "above par" [considering all shows played]. If you are out to get any & all -> go get it ....

    mastered by H.B. from source tapes supplied by Uli Teute; 10/02

    I can't find disk 1 of the original aud, so i used the pitched aud version (better and later) that is part of the sbd-aud composite shnid = 20168.
