Lineage: MC> DAT> CD> SHN

It is not clear to me that the master in this case is a cassette; it may be the PCM (VHS hi-fi)of the “Amy Boards” that circulate from spring ’85. In any case, this was the lineage noted, and the quality is very clean.

There is a stunning jam after China Doll, complete with tape flip at 11:42.

If anybody knows about a SBD of set 1, please get in touch. The first set of this show is excellent, and includes one of the most monstrous versions of “Candyman”
I’ve heard.

Thanks to Raoul, Duke of Bean, for the disks.

Notes: Casey Jones has brief low-level crackle possibly due to a bad
microphone; Wharf Rat has a thirty-second section of analog tape damage
leading to a cut during the song. There is an illegal bootleg available of
this date that apparently has no cut in Wharf Rat, but the cut has been
edited out and the song is about 30 seconds shorter than on the Betty reel.
No EQ has been performed. You hear what is on the Betty reels, as best as
we can get it to you.

Droncit notes:
*Lots of problems in Casey Jones – distortion, noisy pots, loose wiring. I tried to fix as much as I could.
Mostly in left channel, but some in both. Some fun comments after Casey Jones related to coca-cola.

**Garcia says “boogie” before his second solo

***Opening riff to Big Boss Man is played, so songs may be missing.

****Someone in the audience calls it.

*****the opening to Cosmic Charlie sounds like an edit was made; songs may be missing or it may not have
come directly from Cryptical

I was listening to this as it was; it had nice sound quality, but there were a couple of noticeable speed issues.
101 through 115 had a curvilinear increase in speed and was slightly fast. 201 through 210 was noticeably slow,
but in a straight offset. I straightened the first out and slowed it very slightly; I sped the 2nd one up slightly.
They are all very close to the same speed now. There were also spots that appeared to be from a stretched tape.
Noticeably Pigpen’s opening line to Alligator. Still not perfect, but better.

After that, I thought I might as well rework the sound, which seemed to have at least 2 generations in it, and had
a lot of clipping in certain songs. Dancing in the Streets was especially bad. There’s still a lot of distortion
on vocals for some songs. I de-clipped it (about 300,000 clips altogether), and gain-normalized by channel.

Finally, I used a multi-filter on it with equalization, very light expansion, and some virtual valves. All done with
Diamond Cut Forensics 8.5 and 9 alpha 2. No noise reduction was needed, so just a tiny bit of hiss is evident.

The original indicates that Cumberland is a “possible set 2” – it’s difficult to say, so I just left it as it was
