– I hve repaired a great many very small dropouts which occured mostly on d1
and d3
– the static that is present in d1t03 has been greatly reduced
– the staic that was present in d1t04 has been removed
– the intermittent static in d2t08-d2t12 hs been reduced so that it is now
almost inaudible
– the following patches have been made using the source seeded by David
Hollister (shnid 19525)
d1t15 – 0:45-0:47
d3t06 – 1:52-1:54, 3:57-4:05
d4t05 – 4:35-4:425
– a number of volume adjustments have been made
– some noise reduction has been applied
– remastering done with iZotope Oxone and Waves plugins
– d1t05 has large dropouts at 0:31 for 1 second and at 2:37 for 8.5 seconds
which are not repairable.
– I re-tracked d2 and also decided to leave Lovelight as one glorious chunk
of music!

  2. The photo on top of this post is from the day before the concert that the audio is from. The Dead were in town to play the DuPont Gymnasium show on 5/7/60, but on 5/6/70, MIT students participated in a national day of protest against the Vietnam War and the killing of four protesters at Kent State U. in Ohio two days earlier. When the Dead caught word of the rally at MIT, they set up and played a set for free outdoors on the landing of the Kresge Plaza Stratton Student Center to the rally crowd, which is where this photo is from. The Dead and the New Riders played their scheduled show the next night indoors at the DuPont Gymnasium. The audio of the Dead’s free outdoor concert on 5/6/70 can be heard here digitally remastered from a soundboard tape originally recorded (in mono) by the MIT college radio station: https://archive.org/details/gd70-05-06.sbd.gans.94.sbefail.shnf

    I downloaded source 2. Is it worth downloading? You can absorb more vibes from 1970 if listen to source 2. 1970 vibes are a good thing in my opinion. Another fine alt recording.

    We’ve finished with Jerry in 1983. I thought I’d move on to 1970 but have realized its mostly New Riders shows. I like them but I’m not sure I need all their shows. So after a few more we are moving to a few years later where we’ll grab some Jerry and Merl Saunders shows. We may move on from their too, but we’ll just have to see how it goes.
