Notes from original uploader

13 years ago I reiceved a DAT from KEN DIXON (Ohio) with this nice show (don’t remember if he was the taper or if he have made a DAT clone for me). I transfered in 1995 the DAT on CD-AUDIO with my standalone PIONEER PDR-05 (connected with an optical cable), so This transfer was just maded (this time a rip from CD-AUDIO in secure speedy with EAC). Talking with ROEL, he have suggested to upload it as in the past this show (only partial, so not complete) was treeded (..or seeded ??) in low quality sound.
As this show contain some gems as “Stringman” and a rare duets with Simon & Garfunkel (on Helpless and Only love can Break your Heart) and a really emotional “Sound of Silence” with Neil on solo electric guitar, I’m happy to share this really particular show, specially in this quality.

Review by Brian Murphy:
I picked up this CD on the weekend. — Absolutely amazing. It was recorded in 1988 from concerts with the Chieftains in Ireland and contains most of the stuff from Irish Heartbeat. [It contains a] version of “Moondance” – as an *IRISH JIG*. Yes that’s right. I couldn’t believe it. It sounded just like an ordinary jig until I heard the words. I didn’t think that he could still find anything new in the song, the way he plays it in concert recently, but this just blew me away. Also a version of “Send In the Clowns” in which he actually sings it for real, no clowning around, no long pauses, no nothing. Just Van singing a great song as if he means it. (This tra

Editing and mastering by The Wizard –
This is the older of two currently circulating soundboard sources for this show. The newer one is highly compressed and I think the older one has better dynamics. Both will be available from the OBV.

Most tunings were cut on this source. They were restored from a SBD>MR>C>C>CD source that I have had for some time.

Other patches were supplied by the AUD tape,
AUD: Sony ECM-280>Sony TC-153SD>MC>RR>DAT>CDR.

Here is a general summary.
The cut start of Estimated was restored from the Aud source.
The glich in Sugaree patched with the Aud source.
The glich in Sampson patched with the Aud source.
The glich in Music was was patched with the alt SBD source.
The glich in Franklin’s was patched with the alt SBD source.
The flip in Around patched with the Aud source.
Lots of misc. pops removed.
All patches were processed to match the source as best as possible.
All editing and mastering done with DCArt Millennium Software.

There is no d2t06. Not to worry, a song was not left out, it’s all here. The original encoder must have inadvertenly skipped over that
number when labeling the tracks. I didn’t catch it until I was finished with my processing and decided it wasn’t worth the trouble
to go back in and fix it.

Notes from the original uploader:
It seems likely that this is not a commercial boot, but a homemade thing from a trader in Spain. The source appears to be radio, but according to one opinion it is “not flawless”. As the track listings indicate, there is quite a bit of DJ – which is great if you want a bit of Spanish listening practice 🙂
