A>D transfer by Noah Weiner – June, 2003
from Jimmy Warburton’s 7″ Reel.

The recording is mono, and the left channel had a
great deal more hiss and noise than the right. Thus,
the right channel was copied over the left in Sound
Forge to produce a more clean and strong signal for
the final digital project. Also, throughout the reel
there are occasional static pops, fuzz, and crackles.

I love this blog. For years now I’ve got to share great music with cool people. There are always tons of great conversations going on and many of you are way more knowledgeable than me so I’m constantly learning new information. From time to time various folks send me awesome shows to listen to and post. We’ve even had a few folks who’ve sent me so much stuff I just let them go ahead and share directly to the blog.

On a couple of occasions I’ve been lucky enough to get something rare – maybe a newly remastered show, or something only recently circulating, or something straight from a taper.

Today is one of those times. A few weeks back someone sent me a message saying he’d taped a bunch of shows many years ago and was looking for a place to share them. One of those shows was an Allman Brothers gig that he thought was both killer in performance and in the quality of his tape. Would I be interested in sharing it?

Of course I was. Due to my lousy internet and various other complications its taken us weeks to get everything in order, but here we are, mostly. The very last complication comes from the band. ABB is cool with tapers and traders, but they are kind of old school about it. Their official policy states that you can tape shows and share them, but only via pre-internet methods. They don’t want torrents, they don’t want digital downloads.

I have no idea why this is, my guess would be it has something to do with the anonymous nature of the internet and how grabbing something from a torrent doesn’t develop personal relationships like the old trading days did. Whatever the reason I’m planning to follow those rules and won’t be posting the show here.

However, if you would like a copy of the show send me an e-mail and we’ll work something out.

The show does sound amazingly good all things considered. The taper did a great job of capturing it. It is also a very excellent performance. I’m not a huge ABB fan, but the boys were smokin’ this night. As far as I can tell no one else taped this show that night, and until now its not been in circulation. I know the taper has given it to a couple of other folks recently to help with the mastering or whatever so they might have shared it, but it really does seem to be a rather rare treat.

Comments from original uploader: There was a lot of variability in the overall recrding level throughout the recording, even within individual tracks, on the original CDRs. I have applied gains at various points throughout the show to help compensate for the disparity in levels. No noise reduction or compression was used.
