NOTES
– Subsecond drop-out during the first second of ‘Friend of the Devil’
– First ‘She Belongs To Me’ since 01-07-66!
– First ‘Crazy Fingers’ since 10-08-83
– CD Wave and Shntool were used to retrack and verify sector boundaries, and CE2K
for all editing.

Okay, here’s the damage I (un)did to this source. I patched in the missing space
from Doug Oade’s excellent recording. In order to match the levels with Drums at
the beginning and Wheel at the end, I had to put up with a certain amount of
clipping on the drums during the space set – just where the snares are hit really
hard. It’s worth it, though, first to make the transitions smoother, second to
illustrate how an AUD can shine. Doug Oade was obviously not using any limiter,
which Amy probably was, at least for her recording – you can instantly tell the
difference in clarity. A local soundman friend of mine once told me, “I don’t
mix for tapes, I mix for the room”. Soundboard snobs take heed!

I also eliminated a short gap at the end of The Wheel, restoring the seamless
transition into Stella Blue. The gap was possibly a TAO artifact.

The US Blues encore from the original fileset is probably also from the Oade AUD.
