Jon Gullotti contacted Phish.net in an effort to get this show circulating and it now does so thanks to him and the work of Jeff Goldberg of The Audio Specialist. Jon acquired this recording on cassette from the Penny Post's owner the week after the show. Part of the second set is missing (the music between YEM's cut jam segment and the cut into Walk Away) because Jon copied over it with live versions of the Grateful Dead's Dark Star and Shakedown (this music was on the beginning of side A of the second tape). According to Phish.com, fan reports noted that Fluffhead was performed at this show, and so it's likely that Fluffhead was one of the songs copied over; it is not clear if more than the remainder of YEM's jam segment, Fluffhead, and part of Walk Away were copied over.

Because the raw recording is so flawed (e.g., Caravan is only a fragment, YEM's jam cuts out, most of Walk Away is missing, and there are cuts at either the beginning or end of numerous songs including Weekapaug, Slave and Loew), I asked Jeff Goldberg to employ his expertise to try to create a more listenable, "remastered" version (Jeff also needed to splice the Coil and AC/DC Bag, pieces of which were on both side A and side B). Jeff's work included adjusting the pitch so that A = 440 Hz; fixing the hiccup and duplicated bar at the beginning of Mike’s Song; evening-out amplitude levels that were never set during the original recording; normalizing amplitude levels to maximize bandwidth and minimize noise floor; equalizing the sound/timbre of each individual track (different parts of the tapes required different EQ curves); eliminating extreme tape hiss from offending tracks; and setting metadata for each track.

If you have any analog to digital questions (or work), feel free to contact Jeff at [email protected] or on twitter @theaudiopro or google plus at [email protected] or facebook.com/theaudiospecialist.

Great thanks to Jon and Jeff for helping get this show into circulation for the first time after more than 26 years. This gives me a little hope that maybe one day my first show will circulate, too. (10/6/89) [email protected]
