-These three sources, taken together, provide every note of the show. Many thanks to the tapers, transferrers, and seeders who made this possible.
-The SBD source is not of stellar quality. Hopefully a lower-gen and more complete version will surface.
-The original source for the SBD (shnid 9480) ran very fast. I adjusted the speed to match Greg Schug's AUD. The resulting speed decrease ranged from 4% at the beginning of the first set to 5.2% at the end of Good Lovin'.
-In The Music Never Stopped (SBD source), there is a strange crunching sound and a very brief dropout at 8:50. No music is missing.
-The patch in Drums was EQ'd to better match Greg Schug's AUD. A burst of static was tamped down in the first patch in Mississippi Half-Step. No other EQ was applied.
