The Grateful Dead
04/17/71 Set II
Dillon Gym, Princeton University, Princeton NJ
Growing up near Princeton, this show was one of the first dead tapes
I ever heard. My copy was probably S:RCCCCCCCCCCC but I loved it anyway.
I later received a much better copy (sounded like 2-3 analog gens) with
a really lame flip at 45 minutes (aka middle of King Bee).
When I first got my DAT deck, a kind soul (thanks Mike) spun me a copy
of the set. This copy had a cut in Lovelight but beat the analogs any day.
I finally found a copy without the infamous cut in Lovelight and decent
levels to boot.
Since this set was worth the trouble of getting different copies
at least 5 times, I figured that I'd distribute it further than it has
been until now.
The lineage of these files is:
Both DATs were downsampled into my computer via ZA2 (48>44.1)
The Main tape sounds much better than the dub - which is only used for 1.1
seconds (want to find it? Listen to the last time the guys say "the blues"
in Bobbi McGee)
Given the differences in the reel flip (at the end of lovelight)
I would guess that the 'Main' tape represents a separate A>D transfer than
the 'Dub' tape. If you know more, I'd love to hear about it.
This tape is NOT an A+, healy master to DAT, multi-track remix, 96bit A>D
conversion. This is from a reel made in 1971, so you will hear some rough
bits. To the best of my knowledge, this transfer represents the best
circulating copy in existence.
