The AUD is spliced in to supply the following segments:
– beginning through D1T2 (Easy Wind) 3:16
– D2T1 (Speedway) 2:24 through the end

The difference in mix & ambience between the AUD + SBD sources is enormous.
(The same is not necessarily true for the actual sound quality, in terms of
listening pleasure. The AUD may not be very clean and up front; but the SBD is
flat and lifeless.) That’s why I played around with the sources I had and
produced a few “bonus tracks” which are included here.

4. Easy Wind 9:05

complete in almost untouched SBD – there was no right channel
signal on the source from 0:05 to 1:05. I put the left channel
onto both stereo channels. Generally the first 4 minutes suffer
from very bad mix. This track includes the banter before the
song; missing on the AUD.

5. Uncle John’s Band 6:54

The complete song from the AUD tape.

6. Easy Wind 7:23

soundboard/audience mixes: both sources can be heard.
The idea behind this was to take two completely
opposite-sounding recordings of the same performance, both
tapes being of suboptimal quality, and produce a combination
that would be more enjoyable to listen to than either source.
Whether or not I succeeded, you’ll be the judge.

This process required lots of “trial & error” synchronization of
the two source recordings. There are two minor cuts in the AUD
tape which were just too minor for me to care about.

I’ll be the first to admit that it is not perfect. Much of this
is actually due to the first half of the song not having enough
instruments in the SBD mix.
The second half, however, is to me a “warmer” recreation of what
might have been the actual hall sound on 6/13/70, than either of
the two source recordings.

For another example of an SBD/AUD combination, check out
Scarlet Begonias on 9/11/74 (“the third version”).

thanks to Paul Bottiglio for the SBD and Uli for the AUD source!
