from cassette master with a few short splices from a different edit of the same master plus
another taper’s 1st gen. source that had the tape flip in a different place.
You’ll have to listen very carefully to hear the transitions and it is now the entire show without any cut songs.

Disc 1: 56:23 – main set:
01 [05:26] Positive Vibration
02 [03:46] Dem Belly Full
03 [06:05] Concrete Jungle
04 [05:04] Rebel Music
05 [03:58] War!
06 [01:45] > No More Trouble
07 [04:50] Heathen
08 [03:26] Easy Skanking
09 [04:37] I Shot The Sheriff
10 [07:12] No Woman No Cry
11 [09:52] Jammin’

Disc 2: 25:45 – encores:
02 [06:19] Lively Up Yourself
03 [05:58] Get Up Stand Up
04 [03:36] > Punky Reggae Party
05 [09:52] > Exodus

Some microphone handling noises, level changes and minor dropouts were eliminated or minimized seamlessly and this now sounds way better than previous versions of this show. I consider this to be possibly the best sounding audience Bob Marley recording that I have heard. Check the samples to judge the sound for yourself.thanks to Dime users chkorch, wailertape and scottsays (by way of pantagruel) for supplying the various sources that make up this remaster.Info for primary cassette master source: Nakamichi CM300 microphones with CP4 shotgun capsules > Nakamichi 550 cassette deck master > Dat > CD.

No equalization or noise reduction was used in the mastering process.

Transfer: CD’s received in trade from the Dime users mentioned above > Macintosh with Digidesign AudioMedia III card > Pro Tools (nomalization, minor “nip & tuck” edits and tracking) > AIFF > xACT (Flac level 8 files with sector boundaries verified). md5 file created with checkSum+.

  1. This might be an upgrade or patch/tweak for me. In any case it’s a great rec of a great show – highly recommended. I know some people are put off by AUD recs, especially for reggae acts. This however is well worth the d/l
