I uploaded this show from a different source some time ago. This is a much better sounding source so if you liked the show, but hated the sound this ones for you.

Comments from torrentor:
– Beginning of They Love Each Other and most of Russian Lullaby are cut.
– There is pretty significant distortion at times on the first set source, especially during Deal.
– The first set is markely inferior to the second set and I would rate the sound quality as a C-.
– The second set sounds very good and is the reason to get this show with classic renditions of “Sugaree” and “Sitting In Limbo”.

The previous version of this source suffers from multiple analog generations and poor quality digital transfer. Dennis’ cassette is a first gen off the mystery taper’s master and had much less hiss than the previous source without the phase/tape degradation on a source I previously encoded but never really circulated because i thought it sucked. The pitch issues with the other source are not apparent on the new source either.

Processing/Mastering
The following steps were done in mastering the cassette transfer to 16 bit/44.1 KHz WAV:

1. Original 24 bit WAV file was normalized to 87% RMS using Wavelab 5.
2. A 3 second section of the WAV file containing tape noise preceding the onset of musical content was “learned” using Waves X-Noise Plugin and selectively removed at a threshold of 0 dB and 63% removal. Examination of the removed content by visuasl waveform examination and listening showed smooth monotonous hiss without any fluctuation. There was no apparent coloring of the sound using these settings on 24 bit files with a definite reduction in perceived tape hiss.
3. Very minimal bass augmentation using Waves Renaissance Bass Plugin – frequency 90 HZ at a level of -16.7 dB.
4. Waves L3 Multimaximizer Plugin with flat EQ response and threshold of -2 dB/ceiling at -0.02 dB.
5. Mastering was done using the plugins in the above order with direct rendering to 16 bit/44.1 KHz using type I dither with ultra shaping.
6. File tracked using CDWave 1.9 and saved as 16 bit FLAC.

I attempted to restore the first set using some of the above plugin steps, however the results were disappointing and so I just left it as is. It is barely listenable by my personal standards.

Comments from original uploader: There was a lot of variability in the overall recrding level throughout the recording, even within individual tracks, on the original CDRs. I have applied gains at various points throughout the show to help compensate for the disparity in levels. No noise reduction or compression was used.

Notes:
“How Sweet It Is”, was the show opener and is missing from the master.
The cuts at the end of “That’s All Right Mama”, and beginning of “Tangled Up
In Blue” are on the masters as well.
This Recording is a bit muddy with some static present. More than would
normally be expected from a MSC source, in my opinion.
