This is a wonderful show, super-high energy, with an absolutely bonkers crowd. (This was the first Northeast show following Garcia's 1986 coma.)

The very end of Promised Land is clipped, missing perhaps 10 seconds.

Very minor pop at 5:51 of China Cat.
Super minor blip at 10:50 of He's Gone.
Cassette flip at 2:07 of space.
Slight static 4:30 - 5:00 of Black Peter.

This is a very early Matrix recording, and contains quite a lot of crowd in the mix. Still, the up-front sound marks it as Healy's work.

The second set came to me with serious problems, the worst of which was that it was much too fast. Thanks to Mister FTP Jeff Hawkins, the speed is now almost spot-on. However, the pitch shift naturally resulted in a sample rate of 40.6 KHz instead of the standard 44.1 KHz for CD, so everything was then resampled at 44.1. You won't notice.

In addition, the Hartford Civic Center is known for lousy bass response, and as a result the bass on this set was almost unlistenably bloaty (unless, that is, you're one of those guys who always annoys me at stoplights with your "phat" bass to compensate for your ... no, I'd better not say that). Anyway, I equalized the bass rather steeply: -12 dB at 80 Hz and -18 dB at 30 Hz. There are still some artifacts of the compression (Looks Like Rain and Good Lovin' especially), but in general this is much better, and Phil is still stompin'.

Thanks to Douglas Tunstall for the heroic effort in getting me the discs, and to Nick Scarano and Jeff Hawkins for their finely tuned ears. Seeded by Peter Braverman ([email protected]), July 2002.

11/11/2009 btet Is the first set really MSC > DAT? I find that hard to believe, since it's about a semitone sharp (comparing Birdsong to E at 329.63 hz generated in Cool Edit).
11/12/2009 charlie miller It very possibly could be. There was a Sony D6 off the sbd on this tour and it was off-pitch.
