This is a restoration/rework using shnid 18100 (Cotsman) and 09580 (Axelrod).

shnID 18100 provides all the tracks except the majority of track 10 which is
from 09580 and was not on 18100.

*Nice Woo-Hoo before the first verse (about 7 minutes in)
**Is the messy portion (tracks 6-9).

The Original Notes from 18100:
–From 0:36 in New Potato through the Alligator reprise, the quality drops off severely
due to extremely low recording levels. Edits were made to raise the volume and reduce
the hiss levels, which dominated the barely audible music. This portion was taken
from the J. Powell/J. Barnes SHN seed and patched into a different SBD>MR>C>D>CD source
—a source that has somewhat more noticeable hiss, though there are no significant
raspy distortions that can be noticed on the MSR>R>D>CD source.
–splice in New Potato at 0:36 (where the quality severely drops)
–most of New Potato is missing
–Alligator cuts in with a minute or two missing
–there are probably a number of minutes missing after the Alligator reprise.
