notes:

this is a remaster of shnid 5439

– I hve repaired a great many very small dropouts which occured mostly on d1
and d3
– the static that is present in d1t03 has been greatly reduced
– the staic that was present in d1t04 has been removed
– the intermittent static in d2t08-d2t12 hs been reduced so that it is now
almost inaudible
– the following patches have been made using the source seeded by David
Hollister (shnid 19525)
d1t15 – 0:45-0:47
d3t06 – 1:52-1:54, 3:57-4:05
d4t05 – 4:35-4:425
– a number of volume adjustments have been made
– some noise reduction has been applied
– remastering done with iZotope Oxone and Waves plugins
– d1t05 has large dropouts at 0:31 for 1 second and at 2:37 for 8.5 seconds
which are not repairable.
– I re-tracked d2 and also decided to leave Lovelight as one glorious chunk
of music!

* This seed is an upgrade over all circulating copies. The reel tape
wascarefully transferred by Gerhard Schinzel, reducing the speed
problems that marred previous copies. Gerhard has had a 1st
generation copy off Richard Wethey’s master recording since 1976.
* The first seconds of Dire Wolf and Dark Star are cut.
* The d2t8 jam cuts off.
* About 2 minutes are missing from the beginning of Man’s World.

The following are details of the tape speed correction that was
performed digitally.
The numbers express the amount of semitones the source tape ran too
fast:
* acoustic set: constant 0.4
* Gradual speed-up from 0.4 to 0.6 during Easy Wind & Cumberland,
* Dire Wolf: 0.6
* Dark Star: 0.5; almost constant
* Man’s World: varying between 0.4 to 0.5

The attribution of the 4/24/70 date to this tape is debatable.
Richard’s notes accompanying Gerhard’s reel copy do not mention any
specific day; the only information given is “Mammoth Gardens Denver
1970”, which leaves the choice between 4/24 and 4/25.
There is a newspaper article reviewing the second show; this article
is transcribed at http://www.mail-archive.com/deadlists@nemesis.cs.
berkeley.edu/msg02287.html . The fact that Man’s World appears on
this tape points to 4/25. Uli Teute writes on Deadlists, “I don’t
know how the 24th got attributed to what richard taped, but if he
taped the 24. and the newspaper article is correct that would make
3 DarkStars in a row (the 26th also has a Dark Star) – very
unlikely – plus the article matches our tape just perfect. maybe
we have the 25th. and do not know a bit about 4-24”.
