A>D transfer by Noah Weiner – June, 2003
from Jimmy Warburton’s 7″ Reel.

The recording is mono, and the left channel had a
great deal more hiss and noise than the right. Thus,
the right channel was copied over the left in Sound
Forge to produce a more clean and strong signal for
the final digital project. Also, throughout the reel
there are occasional static pops, fuzz, and crackles.

technical notes:
There is some occasional FM reception static/noise here
and there on the recording.

*first 11 seconds of “Rainbow” suffered a severe loss of
signal in the right channel. The left channel was blended
with the right to sonically smooth out this passage.

The very first notes of “Hello, Mary Lou” are missing.
The song fades in on the cassette that was transferred.
There is also a small cut/edit in the song like a pause
button was hit.

Note: A version of this show went into circulation in November, 2001
(http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=18458) as part of a
larger set put out by The Archival Group Tree marking the 30 year
anniversary of the closing of the Fillmore West. The lineages of
that set seem a bit suspect to the ear (plenty of hiss and lo-fi
quality for something saying it is from master reels), plus it was
a bit of a hack job in its assembly (large level discrepancies between
sources, SBEs at every track ID, etc..). That version also mentions
four missing songs at the opening. However, this new version provides
the Bill Graham intro running directly into the first song,
“Workingman’s Blues,” with no tape splice. So, this missing song
issue is debatable. This version here is sourced off of different
reels, and while the quality is not *A*, it may be found to be a
more enjoyable version of the show to the ear.

A few of the tracks from this date circulate (SBD) on the official
re-release of the Riders debut LP. The NRPS archivist, Rob
Bleetstein, has given permission for the safe on-line release of this
FM version of those songs (Feb 2005).
