From David Gans:

“The genealogy of the show tapes varies from tape to tape.

In general, most of the time, it’s master (reel, cassette, DAT, or whatever)
-> DAT -> Sonic Solutions digital audio workstation -> master CD
-> CD clone that goes to radio stations (or, in the case of public radio stations,
the master CD goes to NPR where it’s uplinked to their digital satellite system;
most stations downlink to DAT and broadcast from that.”

Comments from the original uploader: Dead space/crowd noise between several tracks edited out on the master discs. Overall, an above average audience recording with moderate crowd intrusiveness/clapping, but hey- it was the 4/20 show at the Warfield!!!

This show has performance number two of only four performances of “Twilight” – the first performance was the night before and it starts out a little rusty but quickly falls into laid back reggae-ish groove.

d1t02 – small pop at 04:15 – i tried to fix it but its embedded – cerebral filters will have to do. it may be a balloon pop.
d1t02 – questionable “lighter being flicked” by nearby Warfield patron @ 04:23, 04:27, 04:35 with subsequent cough @ 04:40.
d1t04 – small digital artifact @ 00:45.975 repaired with SF5 pencil.

Recording levels on the seed CDRs were quite low so a +2.0 dB volume gain was applied to the entire show using soundforge 5.0 prior to tracking.
