Special Thanks

Many thanks to James Young and Clay Brennecke for their wonderful
recording.  Thanks to A. Kowalski for their transfer on the SBD
source.  Thanks to Keith Litzenberger for another excellent AUD
used for the patch in Bertha.  And thanks to both Jamie Waddell
and Todd Evens for their pristine transfers and excellent editing
mastering on the FOB.


Notes on the Source Material

SBD (shnID = 525)
It is shocking that this is still the only shnID for this show
as it is so old. However, it is likely until now, a better source
could not be located.  It is noted that this source, like all in
circulation, has a small amount of digi-fuzz and a dropout at
the start of Bertha.  My original DAT had the same problem so I
belive that is indeed true.

This is another strange 1991 SBD.  Let me explain.  Quite a few
digital SBD's for the 1991 year are in circulation.  I am sure
some of you have noticed a sorta strange sound quality to them.  
What makes them sound they way they do is unknown to me.  I'd
call them too digital.  They tip-toe along the edge of blurry.  
If I had to guess I would think a portable DAT deck was being fed
an analog signal into the line in.  And although the levels were
set appropriately the deck was overloaded by 'too hot' a feed
from the SBD.  

AUD (shnID = 97389)
Nice and well balanced FOB.  This upfront FOB grabs quite a bit
of the sound from the PA with just enough atmosphere you like for
making a matrix mix. While it doesn't completely fix the strange
"digitally" sound of the SBD it does help quite a bit.


Tech Notes

FLACs decoded and Wavemerge was used to reassemble the entire
show back to 1 long wave. CEP2.0 was used to align & synch all
of the sources. CEP2.0 was used for the multitrack mixdown.
This is a 65%-SBD, 35%-AUD mix.

Entire show (and all disc changes) are seamless and can be
played start to finish without inturruption.

d1t01 "Tuning" Is mostly from the AUD source.  Crossfades
to the SBD just a few seconds before the first song.

d1t03 "Bertha" Small amount of Dig Fuzz was patch using a
matrix mix of shnID 97389 & 94246.  This was then EQed,
levels adjusted and crossfaded with the SBD to make the
source change transistion as smooth as possible.  This
patch came out excellent and is in no way distracting.
