same recording as LB-1463 based on similar wav and spectral view except levels
slightly different and this has less above 21k; (did not listen to all of this)

Remaster from Pink Robert

Contrast clause: This differs from Bob Dylan 1993-02-09 London Hammersmith LTA.torrent. The overall Pre-Board sound is identifiably unique.

From the original uploader

I want to thank Pink Robert for passing this remaster to me and also for his great effort. Here is what he writes:

“I am pretty satisfied with the results, although I did not spend
a lot of time in doing this, since all pre-boards suffered from the same
problem: it was too cold, so I put some warmth back by adding three
frequency range I found lacking. Also, I corrected levels which were
occasionally out of control and all gaps I found. All in all, now it is
possible to relax and to listen as very nice soundboard recording, at least a lot of them. I added all missing tracks I had as audience recordings, some with better results, some with worse and I spent most of the time doing the comparisons of pre-boards and audience to make them as close as possible. I doubt that it would be possible to be done better.”

  1. I was at a few of these London gigs, can’t remember if i was at this one though. They are good in places ‘Jim Jones’ ‘I and I’ for example. Trouble is some of the arrangements really drag, far too long and lacking in direction. Just kills the energy in the somgs. The other problem is that Bob obviously wanted to do the ;Jam Band’ thing and this particular lineup just weren’t up to that at all.
