*) cuts in, and 24 second dropout on right channel

– DAT from the Dutch Masters Archives
– “FK” tape
– Transfer: DAT played on Sony DTC-790 deck -> S/PDIF cable -> Terratec
Aureon 5.1 soundcard -> Adobe Audition -> WAV -> CDWave -> WAV -> FLAC
– Mastering done in Adobe Audition; pitch raised +0.45 semitone, converted
to 44.1kHz. Some bass was added with BBE Sonic Maximizer. Some loud
clicks and pops repaired.
– Tape flips are: before Too Far Gone, before Cocaine Eyes (set change),
and just before the band introductions.
– Known issues: There are a number of microphone problems on the original
tape, mostly minor dropouts and the start of each set. Unfortunately, a
few seconds are missing from the beginning of Too Far Gone, and during
the intro there is a 24 second dropout on the right channel as well
(sounds like a disconnected microphone cable).
– But don’t let these flaws fool you, this is an awesome show with a very
rare acoustic Ordinary People which lasts over 10 minutes! This is the
last known performance of the song.
– There’s also a rare Wrecking Ball, and a Boxcar on this show.
