LosslessBob entry: LB-2650. has tv band at 16k for dylan part but not the band part; background talking d2t1, d2t5; good sound [C+] has some occasional very light background popping surface like noise on dylan part; discontinuity pop d1t6 3:52, d1t14 0:20, 3:12, 3:13, d2t9 0:14 and probably more scattered; analog drop d1t9 1:44, d1t15 3:25; lots of digi-pops on d2t1 and d2t2; drop d1t7 0:00

Fix of LB-2650: WAV > “The Weight” (the Band) and “Forever Young” (Dylan & The Band) were at the end of disc two fileset. They are now moved to the correct order as per setlist. Track transition cannot verify their correct order because “The weight” [D2T09] seems to fade in with a slight clip on source [“The Shape I’m in” preceding it, is slightly end clipped]. Also, it is probably the last song of The Band’s second set and there is usually an edit between The Band’s set and Dylan’s set following it. “Forever Young” [D2T10] starts with taper (?) talking about “give ma a hand [..] missing one song” (?) which might also explain the edit at its start. Track transition from “Forever Young” [D2T10] into “Something There Is About You” [D2T11] is not seemless > Cool Edit Pro 2.1. Applied “Click/pop eliminator Preset: Hiss + lots of clicks” to eliminate many hardly audible minor ticks across (see [1]DFF.pdf). The process did not produced any artifact noise after pop elimination nor apply any sound mastering. The option also cleaned index clicks present on the FLACs (see [2]DFF.pdf) > Wave Repair 4.9.3 to manually removed micro gaps at indexes and remaining clicks at begining of “Just Like A Woman”. Fixed analog drop on d1t15 at 3:25+27. Analog drop d1t9 at 1:44 left unaltered. Remaining flaws (see [2]DFF) are music/background related > FLAC, sector align.
