Goody’s comments:
The pitch of this set was approx. 62 cents flat. Although all the frantic pickin’ continually puts the strings out of tune, we do hear lots of tuning up going on. I’ve tuned to those moments, and checked the rest of it to make sure it all pretty much stays in tune. I believe it’s now back to the correct and original speed and pitch at which it was recorded.

Note that this text has been updated to reflect the changes in the Track Times, as well as the Total Time. The PDF that circulates with the previous version of this torrent contains all the old times, previous to this Pitch-Corrected Edition.
