Deadlists Comments:
The newly circulating CDs transcribe Latvala's cassette copy of
the master reels.  The cassette has a flip about 11 minutes in to the Dark
Star but Latvala must have put some overlap on B because there is no cut
audible on the well-produced CD.

A 41 minute fragment from this tape has circulated for years, usually
mislabeled "Family Dog 8/29/69" but sometimes also mislabeld "Family Dog
6/5/69" or "Fillmore West 6/5/69."  This fragment contains the last 17:50 of
Dark Star through the first 3:28 of High Time.

Tagging notes:
Show information is embedded within the header of each flac file.
It will display on any player capable of directly playing flac files.
If converted to wav during processing, all tags will be
stripped, however audio data will remain unaffected.
If you must transcode to a lossy format, do so directly Flac > Lossy.
Use st5 to validate audio integrity.
Md5 values will change if tagging is altered.

Caveat Auditor: The sound is pretty rough, this certainly does
NOT upgrade ID-8594. However, as an example of an early audience
recording, it does have historical interest. This is likely the
same "mislabled fragment" that is referred to on Deadlists.

The lineage was listed as: Aud Master > Reel > Latvala's Reel >
Cassette > Seaweed's cassette (4th gen). The recording is mono.
There are some cuts that were left un-repaired: Dark Star 2:21
(a lot missing), Dark Star 7:11, St. Stephen 6:27 (tiny skip),
and The Eleven 1:13. Small FLAC sizes due to mono WAV data.

Audio Patching;
1) 5 minutes into Drums, 25.543 was missing from the Soundboard and was filled in with audio from the audience.

2) I used the soundboard as the timing reference as the audience lineage was "4th generation".
