Comments from the original uploader:
I didn’t edit this show. There is a fade at the end of d2t04. I guess this covered a tape flip? Space continues through d2t05.
I felt no need to use wavmerge to retrack the original wavs.
There are unknown cassette generations – but my guess would be one generation.

A Little Slow Down


A friend of the site just sent me an incredible gift – 4 Terabytes worth of shows! That’s a whole lot of music to sort through. Instead of pouring through his lists of shows and comparing them to mine and coming up with a list of things I didn’t have I just asked him to send me all his Dylan, Van, Neil shows. It seemed easier to sort it out here rather than spend a month looking at lists (or maybe I just wanted the shows now!)  He also sent a lovely assortment of other artists as well.

I have them now and am trying to sort them. I’ll be unloading the hard drive he sent me and putting them on one of mine so that I can load his back up and send it to him. Call that the grand-daddy of all trades! Then I’ll be sorting through it all and trying to organize all my files over several hard drives.

As such I’m going to take a break from uploading shows for a little while. I still have a pretty big backlog of stuff that’s on Amazon but has yet been posted on the blog. What I’ve decided to do is slow the number of posts down to about one a day so that I don’t burn through that log too quickly.

It shouldn’t take too terribly long to get things sorted reasonably well. I’m thinking a couple of weeks, tops. After that I’ll get back to my regular speed. I now have a lifetimes worth of music to share. Enjoy.

Comments from original uploader:
Entire show with Clarence Clemons.
Final performance of “Hope It Won’t Be This Way, Always”.

Overall this is a surprisingly clean SBD/low analog generation without any major tape/mechanical glitches beyond the flips and very little hiss. The tape speed was slow requiring a pitch transposition of 1.0386.
