was used to normalize, correct the pitch, and remove or lessen a

indicates no more than two analog generations before the transfer
to digital.

    All Transfers and Mastering By Charlie Miller

    — Disc change is seamless
    — This is far from perfect but it’s a lot better than it was
    — Louie Louie tease following Good Morning Little Schoolgirl
    — Bad cut from tape flip between The Eleven and Death Don’t Have No Mercy
    — Thanks to Joe B. Jones for his help with the pitch correction

    I generally assume the Traders Den brand guarantees most recent/best source. Oh well only one way to find out, and if it is a ‘duplicate’ no harm done

  2. Yep, my show source has that version too. Normally I go with Charlie Miller versions as they generally sound as good as anything you can get. Can’t remember now why I went with this one. I think maybe I thought the miller version was missing songs but now that I’m looking at it they are just tracked differently.

    Do let me know if the Miller sounds much better than this and I’ll post the Miller one too.
