but processed with Soundforge + Waves (BIAS) “Z-noise” noise reduction plug-in to remove excessive tape hiss

Listening to the first track, I noticed the long hissy (silent) leader before the first song faded in and figured that this baseline noise would be easy to remove with a good noise reduction plugin as there was so much isolated tape hiss to sample. The effect is subtle but definitely an improvement. I didn’t get too crazy as I really hate squelched higher frequencies due to over-aggressive noise reduction.

Dubwise Personal Notes: One of my favorite Bob shows. Its very special because its the first time his mother saw him perform.
He does some uncommon songs like Night Shift and Johnny Was and Jah Live. A lot of different talking between songs and lyrical changes.
Bob is in a great mood. Enjoy this remaster.

Some microphone handling noises, level changes and minor dropouts were eliminated or minimized seamlessly and this now sounds way better than previous versions of this show. I consider this to be possibly the best sounding audience Bob Marley recording that I have heard. Check the samples to judge the sound for yourself.thanks to Dime users chkorch, wailertape and scottsays (by way of pantagruel) for supplying the various sources that make up this remaster.Info for primary cassette master source: Nakamichi CM300 microphones with CP4 shotgun capsules > Nakamichi 550 cassette deck master > Dat > CD.

notes:

@ a little background on this gem. i saw this version of this show on one of Taper Pat’s lists and asked for a copy. I believe Matt had part of it and Pat had the rest of it, and then they put it together and sent me a copy. so grateful my friends! new wailers sources of this quality are truly rare and just wonderful. despite the minor blemishes on all copies that come from the set up and station, this is a joy to listen to and i don’t think this will get any better. maybe someday we’ll see a transfer from the mr or prefm source but that it has taken this long to get this source out, I’m not counting on it.

1st US performance – great show – overall, very enjoyable sound
of course it still has the slight monitor and / or equipment noise and perhaps some fm interference that are present on the commonly available sources (faint hum or buzz and occasional slight crackle?)

morever, we have had a copy with unknown generation
and then in 2005 emerged a 3rd gen tape. i really enjoy it but it was edited
by a person with little experience. i believe they did a nice job with
what they had but there are a few differences between sources:

* this source is a touch longer. it has more of the preshow recorded (bob’s short intro). both are complete however.

* the 3rd gen tape has it’s volume boosted which also boosts
the volume of the blemishes and crowd. as a result, i believe this
source has a more mellow sound and feel overall.

* the 3rd gen tape sounds tampered with, it has had some “equalizing”: it sounds and feels a little unnatural while this seems to have a more steady sound and feel to it. this new source has a fuller range and dynamic of instruments and vocals. in other words, the equalizing seems to both amplify and bury the music resulting in a less authentic and pleasing experience for me.
the edited tape version sounds more tinny and has less warmth than the unedited reel version.

* i can understand the dilemma of to edit or not: i think we need both. while
editing major issues can move toward restoration, it can also distort the actual sound of the show. editing also results in irreversible changes preventing continual improvements or remasters as individual skill and technology improve. it also reflects and embodies the subjective preferences of the editor which is very risky. still if a version can be enhanced to make the listening experience
as enjoyable as it can be at that time, that’s nice to have until even better upgrades are possible. I believe it is ideal to have a “raw” or unedited version in order to both preserve the music and allow for the best possible long term improvements.

While I don’t think you will be disappointed by either source, especially given the band and what’s generally available from them, imo, it’s critical that we get this source and upgrade into general circulation.
