  • Around & Around missing from master

Known flaws:
(Disc 1 has serious mix problems throughout much of it)
D1t01: (Wave That Flag) volume fluctuations
D1t02: (Me and My Uncle) instrument/vocal fadeouts 2:05 – 2:50
D1t04: (BIODTL) 0.57-1.01 sound system noise/distortion
D1t05: (Loser) Subsecond dropout at 4:19, instrument/vocal fadeouts
D1t08: (You Ain’t Woman Enough) Dropout/splice at 1:19, several
seconds of music lost
D2t04: (Box of Rain) Some tape waver
D3t02: (Eyes) Reel splice at 15:09 (right before Stella Blue);
it’s not clear how much music is missing.
D4t01: (Dark Star) There is some changing back and forth of
channels at the beginning, and a subsecond dropout at 4:53.
D4t04: (GDTRFB) Reel splice at 1:32.

This is the only version of these shows I have been able to find on
CD. If you have a better or more complete copy, please consider
seeding it to the etree. In spite of the flaws, the sound on most of
this is good, and there is some remarkable music here.

Retracking Notes:
This show has circulated with a portion of the 2-22-73 show mixed in.
Some of the 2-22 songs were tracked as 2-21-73.The complete 2-22-73
show now circulates as shnid 12215. I removed the songs from that
show and retracked this show to fit entirely on two discs. What we
have here is the complete show properly tracked.
