The Owen Brothers Vault
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.
