composites:
–the SBD (source 1) provides the acoustic set and Me & My Uncle to
the end of the show.
–Source 2 is from a Jack Toner AUD recording, and provides the NRPS set.
–The rest of the Dead’s electric set is from source 3, which is
also derived from the Toner AUD.

alternate tracking:
–the entire New Riders set can be placed onto one disc.
–The Dead’s acoustic set can be placed at the beginning of what would
be “d2” of this shn set, allowing the Dead’s portion of the show to
fit onto two discs total.

notes:
–Jerry aborts Black Peter midway, probably because of monitor problems
–from Sugar Magnolia through Drums, there are problems that cause
frequent dropouts/fluctuations in recording levels, possibly from
strain on the tape from movement during the concert.
–this is the latest known It’s A Man’s, Man’s World (as of Jun ’03)
–this is the earliest known Till The Morning Comes (as of Jun ’03)
–tape flip at 2:11 in Till The Morning Comes
–warble at the beginning of Me & My Uncle
–small AUD patch over glitch in Dancin’ at 5:06
–Tighten Up Jam in Dancin’ starting at 8:40
–Sound Forge was used for normalization and minor pitch adjustments

notes:
this is a remaster of the sources from shnid 17893

the sbd, source 1, provides Me & My Uncle to the end of the show,
the rest is from source 2, a Jack Toner aud recording.

I haven’t touched the sbd section, other than to tweak the patch
in Dancin’ and re-encode to flac, but I did feel that the aud section
could be improved. It still suffers from the dropouts, etc but
I think that the sound is now better.

*with David Nelson
**with David Crosby

notes:
The original taper(s) stopped the tape between most songs during the
acoustic set and some of the electric set. I have crossfaded the tracks
together to smooth the cuts and provide a generally more pleasant
listening experience. No music was lost (and no further tinkering was
attempted), although I have removed some crowd and a wee bit o’ tuning
to tighten things up and facilitate a two disc set. To accomplish this,
I decoded the original sources with xACT, lightly edited several tracks
in Peak LE 5.2, and did the crossfades in Jam 5. Encoding to FLAC was
done with Toast 7.1.2, compression level 6.

CDJones 1/17/2007

From the original sources:

Set 1:
Master Audience Cassette; Sony TC-124 with Sony Stereo Mic
Master cassettes played back on Nakamichi Dragon >
Digital Audio Labs Card Deluxe soundcard (96Mhz/24 bit)> HD
Editing performed in Adobe Audition; Dithered and downsampled
to 44.1 MHz / 16 bit;
Transfer and FLAC encoding by David Minches.

This is a very fine recording, especially of the acoustic set and
includes 4 songs that aren’t in circulation. The tape deck was paused
in between songs causing a “whooshing” sound which I partially edited
out. The first few notes of many of the songs are missing due to the
pausing but do not allow that to take away from the excellence of the
recording. There are other anomalies and cuts, some of which I had not
listed.

Set 2:
Notes:
–a quote from deadlists: “The Taper’s Compendium seriously misrepresents
the quality of this AUD master, and of the previous night’s.”

Comments:
I converted this cassette to disc around 1999 or 2000, then promptly
forgot about it until recently. I’m pretty sure of the lineage,
considering my original source of the cassette and the sound quality.
Tape hiss is minor and I don’t recall hearing any dropouts.

The Attics is absolutely stunning.
