SHNID: 2267

Some portions (Tuning Break->Midnight Hour) may be
from another source, probably the FM broadcast of the show -G

(*) The Encore has been placed on Disc 1 in order to
retain the continuity of the First and Second Sets. However,
if you have the capability of burning 80 min CDs, you can place
the Encore as track 11 on the Disc 2 (with about 20 seconds
to spare).

Thanks to Jim Douglas for the excellent copy of this show!
Arrangement of tracks into this format via Garrett Van Cleef

(version C2)

The tracks from “Tuning Break” thru “Midnight Hour” appear to be from a different
source than the rest of the show (which is pretty clean). These tracks have a significant
increase in the amount of tape hiss present. I found it to interfere with my enjoyment
of the music.

I created Hiss Reduced versions of these tracks for this supplement. I also
crossfaded the real change (?) at ~11:40 in Alligator so that it doesn’t
blow your tweeters out! If you wish to create a CD using these HR tracks, simply use
them instead of the ones in the main distribution. The main distribution files were
the source for these supplment tracks.

I used Sound Forge Noise Reduction to do the hiss reduction and other “voodoo”.
The tracks which were modified are included in the directory with this file.

Here are the tracks that this supplement replaces:

Disc 1
7. Midnight Hour

Disc 2
7. Tuning Break
8. Alligator > Drums > Alligator (reprise) >
9. Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks)
10. Alligator Underwater Feedback
