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].

tape flip (crossfade).
