Show Total: 01:36:25
General Notes:
1. There a number or points where there is a change in the mix. I have no clue as to why that is…maybe Healy tweaking the mix…
2. % There are two cuts in Drumz 43:17 and 44:55 (3.8 sec gap), I cross faded them and they are not noticeable unless you are listening for it.
3. While this is a dramatic improvement over the source I have (these CDr’s are quite possibly the only ones.)
4. There is some static throughout. I made 4 transfers of each disk and came up with the same static.  As I mentioned earlier I was given these CD’s by Tom Morgan, 4 or so years ago and nothing has surfaced since them..
5. This may be something to seek some guidance from Charlie Miller ;), I mean, why has this show eluded the sbd til now?
Editor Notes:
The CD's were burned in way that I have never seen.  you could not open them up and drag and drop. The wave on each disk appeared and was treated as it was an image. This, from my viewpoint made it only possible to transfer if it was played into your soundcard and recorded on any software capable (which is what I do for all my transfers anyway, see lineage.)

I was given the waves on three disks several years ago and at the time, this was a complicated project and I have never been happy enough to archive and seed. Basically, I was not able to make any substantial improvement on the quality, which was in the C range.  
I guess that my editing (or perceived skills) have improved over the years as this transfer/re-master is fantastic! There is a bit of noise between,

There was an obvious attempt to reduce the noise on the master that I used here. I will place spectral graphs of a sample track, just because I think that it is important that this previous attempt to remove noise (worse yet, excessive processing may be at the root of the SBD quality as I got it. :(  

Fortunately, most of the processing done, which was in the range of a C quality, was reversible, but with an impact on the noise. Every attempt, however small had a drastic effect on the drumz, ie... cymbals, Hi-Hats and other material in the highest range of the spectrum (see the spectral graphs linked below). (When/if you compare the original sample, look to Billy’s drum kit, most of it was not audible until I ran the edits (touring transfer and post transfer).

Anyway, The Phil Bomb is accurately represented in the low of the lows ;) Jerry is upfront in vocals and guitar (his voice sounds great!, the drumz/space is notable, particularly the space -> The Otherone. I adopted an opinion read somewhere that the best O1's are those that are given a the most time to fester a while til that bomb, well ... we have all that here.  Brent and Bobby are there, as expected (Brent plays rather dark during space, an interesting treatment, found on a few other shows in this tour.

I don't sense any pitch issues, but that is by ear, which at my age, is not reliable for incremental pitch analysis. (I did adopt a tip from a fellow LL’r that involves using a guitar tuner.)  It looked fine to me using this method.  One great aspect of this recording is the # of gens and the total lack of any perceivable warble, which is all too common from multi-gen sources (someone in any trade of these gens always seems to store it wrong and, so we are lucky here.

I have laid the ground work for  Kevin Tobin to make a matrix, dts, etc.., using this source and one or two AUDs.  Please give him a shot at this before taking it on yourself.  If anyone wants to modify this, feel free, but LMK, I will get you the waves from any iteration, as fast as I can.  I have saved every iteration: transfer, ozone, imager, graphical edits, wave tracked and the Flac’s here
