New azimuth adjusted transfer…

The Zoo Amphitheater ( OKC Zoo) was always one of my favorite places to tape because I always knew I could get a great capture there. General Admission with no seats just a sloping hill from the bottom to the top (at least back in the 1980’s). As long as I got there early I’d park myself in front of the PA and away we’d go. The only thing you had to watch for is that the shows always began before the sun went down so you had to be aware of being spotted early on and the occasional drunk.

I shared a version of this show back around 2006 that was not azimuth adjusted and thought it was time to re-visit and transfer correctly.

Great show and great capture on this one…

Notes from the original uploader:

Pretty good recording, awesome stuffs. Almost all the songs are not complete, some fades in,
some fades out, some are cut, but it’s just an super jam !

1st generation reel to reel > revox > amplifiers > tascam audio cdrw750 > cd > computer > plex tool professional XL > wav > flac.

Recorded, transfered, & uploaded by 38f on Dime, March 2007.

This comes straight from the John Cipollina’s collection, i personally made a copy of his reel
and his notes….I did not touch the sound or edited anything in the trasfer, you get what
i got in first place.
