Jay’s Notes:

Digitally Remastered using a custom built, Dual-DAW, nicknamed Bertha,
by jashley@deadacated.com. Completed January 6, 2006.

Frequency analysis revealed a strange upward slope from around 12khz out
beyond 22khz. This is why the high end is so bright and tinny sounding.
It’s not known what caused this, though, it is not very common to see this
on a master reel source. Perhaps the recorder had an extended range setting
that was set improperly or possibly recorded with dolby and played back
without dolby. In any case, the curve was corrected, making for a more
natural sounding high end.

The mix is all over the place, sometimes perfect and sometimes overdriven
and badly distorted. Together with the cuts, somebody must have been a bit
too Stoned. And at the Catholic Center no less…the shame. LOL!

I’m not entirely sure where the first three tracks come from. The radio broadcast starts at track 4. It is possible the first three tracks are from the same recording but were not broadcast, but they may come from a completely different show.

Sent to me as one WAV file from Mauro’s tape collection. Split into separate tracks by DLT using Roxio. I converted and tagged the tracks using xACT.

Original WAV file was labeled 19710704 but I think it is actually 07/03/71.

Comments:

This was a short show due to curfew restrictions.

Notes:

– I remixed the first 1:20 of “China Cat” as it was inconsistent with the rest of the track.
– I decided to track this as one set as there is no evidence of a set break.
