Early Show
Unknown LB#, if anyone wants to figure it out I’d appreciate it.

From the original uploader: very good turning excellent sound; cuts on d1t11 and d2t5 (Note: there is confusion between setlist sources on what is the evening and afternoon show – this is the same show previously circulated as the afternoon show)

Source 2:
LB-4445
Oakland Flood
Mostly Likely – Don’t Think Twice from Early Show, It’s Alright Ma – Blowin’ in the Wind from Late Show.

Review:
This Japanese CD combines two excellent quality, superbly mixed soundboard recordings from the Feb.11, 1974 early and late shows, and
includes tracks performed by The Band as well. The performance, while fairly standard for 1974 in terms of the setlist, is excellent in execution. A surprisingly enjoyable set and, as with Paint The Daytime Black, a far better representation of 1974
than the official Before The Flood album.

Afternoon set only, does not include The Band only songs.

Lineage: Low Gen tape > CDR > EAC > Flac [lk aud set]

LosslessBob entry: LB-2708. upgrade over previous version since does not have the scratchiness sound; good sound [C+]. has small gaps between tracks; stray clap/noise t2 2:16, t3 3;23, small noise t13 1:33

Fix of LB-2708: Wave Repair 4.9.3 to fix micro gaps at indexes and leading/trailing silences > FLAC, sector align

Source 4:
LB-9371
Late Show Only
Lineage: Low Gen tape > CDR > EAC > Flac [lk aud set]

LosslessBob: LB-2709. sounds blarey and harsh when compared to pa tape; odd rumbling background noise on d2t2; good to very good sound [B-] has small gaps between tracks; noise d1t1 0:03

Fix of LB-2709: Wave Repair 4.9.3 to fix micro gaps or clicks/noises at indexes. Removed leading/trailing digital silences. Removed long gap between d2/t2-3. Removed noise d1t1 0:03. Left channel dropouts [not audible] unaltered on d1t2 at 1:50, 2:19 + d1t13 at 2:50 + d2t1 00:53, 1:00 + d2t13 at 3:27/30. Odd rumbling background noise on d2t2 is evidently analog flaw left unaltered. Note: The Shape I’m in (the Band) is listed as d2t8 in lk setlist text file but was not included in files > FLAC, sector align.
