Review from Niall Connors:
This is a first-rate FM recording of the complete show (unlike Haunts of Ancient Peace and I Can’t Go On… But I’ll Go On). The “I Will Be There”, “Jackie Wilson” and “St. Dominic’s” trio are all great versions; additionally, this set features my favorite “Vanlose Stairway” and “Ballerina” boot renditions. The sound is superb: on a par with Down By Avalon and Edinburgh Castle.

–splice at 3:41 in The Other One
–several minor blemishes
during the stereo portion of the show
–minor splice at 0:06 in Feedback

-Sound Forge was used for some minor edits, including a slight pitch
correction for an excerpt and to fix a brief repeat during The Eleven.

The Confusion:
There has been a great deal of confusion regarding
the date of 8-22-68, and this shn set still has several uncertain elements.
Maybe some of this info can help:
–“source 1” (mono),
has circulated fairly commonly under “8-22-68”, though the Alligator
that accompanies that recording is actually the version from 8-21-68.
Still, there is no certainty that this material covering Stephen
through New Potato is from 8-22. It does not match any other
circulating material, though, and the intro from Bill Graham clearly
places this at the Fillmore. Furthermore, this show may circulate
with Dark Star as the opener, as it follows the Bill Graham intro.
However, Bill Graham introduced the band at the start of each set
in those days, so I’ve kept Dark Star where it was on my copy,
in position to start the 2nd set.
–“source 2” is in stereo, and has
been dated as 8-22-68 from David Gans. This portion often circulates
following an alternate mix of the material that would make up
“Two From The Vault” (8-24-68).

Other bits of reference:
–Phil’s bass is
out of tune during New Potato on 8-22, unlike the phenominal 8-24 version

the Alligator from 8-21 differs as it does not segue into Caution

the Alligator/Caution from 8-23 differs in that it does not segue
into WBYG after Feedback
–the minor cut in Feedback on 8-22 may be
disguised on some copies

Lastly, this probably isn’t the end of confusion
for 8-22, but as of Jan ’03, it’s a best guess

Digitally remastered using a custom built, Dual-DAW, nicknamed Bertha, by jashley@deadacated.com on April 3, 2003.

The first sounds like it was from a different source than the second set. The channels were reversed on the first set, as well. The channels were corrected prior to processing.

Because of the difference in sound quality between the first and second sets, they were processed separately. The objective, as well as improving the sonic quality, was to match the sound from set to set, as close as possible.

The last 20 minutes of the show is patched from a Soundboard/Audience source and was also processed separately.

The patches on d1t01 and d3t03 were done by others prior to receiving the show.

Mastering Notes:

This Glassberg source does not circulate… until now.

But the Glassberg master cassettes have speed issues and run slow. The two other
sources for this show do not run at the same speed either. The Glassberg show
runs 2.6% slower than the Moore source [gd77-05-03.moore.minches.17954.sbeok.shnf].
And the first set only soundboard [gd77-05-03.set1-sbd.miller.21646.sbeok.shnf]
runs faster than the Moore source. We chose to use the Moore source for patches
because it sounded the right “A” pitch compared to a guitar tuned, and since
the Moore source was also recorded up in the front row balcony right next to
Glassberg, it was a better patch source in overall sound.

We matched the pitch by adjusting the Nakamichi playback speed – literally opening
up the deck and adjusting the internal playback screws. We initially tried to alter
the speed of the original 24-bit transfer with various software plugins, and found
the digital spped/pitch change was not acceptable. We tried three different “high-end” plugins that will go nameless because they all sounded horrible and added swirling artifacts. By changing the playback speed BEFORE the A/D sounded the best. Yes…
many hours were spent on this comparing. This show deserves it. Enjoy!

1: The very end of Peggy-o is clipped and missing.
2: End of Row Jimmy [10:31 to end] patched with gd77-05-03.moore.minches.17954.sbeok.shnf
3. Tape change during crowd between Estimated and Sugaree was fixed with crossfade
4. Tape change during crowd between Sugaree and Samson was fixed with crossfade
5: Tape change during crowd between FOTD and Eyes was fixed with crossfade
6: 6 secs of Around & Around [3:34 – 3:50] patched with gd77-05-03.moore.minches.17954.sbeok.shnf [which was slightly eq’d to best match Glassberg source, but you can still hear the transition].

Several times during show the right channel drops out and has some minor distortion on piano notes. The following correctable pops were fixed using Cool Edit 2000 by M. Vernon

-D1T09 From 2:45.282 – 2:45.372 the right channel dropped with some static that sounds like a skip. Selectively de-clicked the big spikes so it is somewhat less jarring
