WBCN radio broadcast, 63:43, A

Lineage: FM > master cassette > CDR > edits + speed correction > flac(lvl8)

Note: Same source as that used for Valleybird’s excellent remaster, but his sans patch. It seems we were both working on this simultaneously. There is a third remaster that landed on DIME in 2014, but that is sourced from the JMY bootleg which is inferior to the source used for this restoration and Valleybird’s dynamic reconstruction remaster.

Miles Davis (tpt, org); Dave Liebman (ss, ts, fl); Pete Cosey (g, perc); Reggie Lucas (g);
Michael Henderson (el-b); Al Foster (d); James Mtume Forman (cga, perc)

post restoration by plaz:
– repaired clicks and pops
– speed corrected with settings recommended by flambay: Tracks 1, 2, 4 and 5: -35cts; Track 3: -30cts
– phase correction: +0.20 to +0.24ms
– tape flip patched with material from alternate FM recording
– retracked and packed to flac(lvl8)

Additional Notes:
This recording is a restoration of the same source that Valleybird (VB) used for his excellent remaster. This source is from an off-air cassette master which was transferred to CD-R using a Phillips standalone CD-R recorder. It seems VB and I were unwittingly working on the material simultaneously.

There is a third ‘remaster’ that landed on DIME in 2014, but that is sourced from the JMY bootleg (probable 3rd analog generation, off-air tape source) which is inferior to this source which is used for this restoration and VB’s dynamic reconstruction remaster.

I have another recording of this broadcast (lineage: Mcas > cas > R > dat > wav@24-48) which is, or is similar to, the JMY boot source. Both of these sources are far inferior to this alternate MAC. This MAC was recorded on a C-60 cassette, hence the tape flip patch which was extracted from the pre-JMY 24/48 source.

Initially seeded via, September 2010.
Reseeded on TTD with no changes (but a few additional comments about sources and alternates and added the band lineup; see Additional Notes), June 16, 2019.
