Currently, this is not the best version going around on CD. Reportedly, David Hollister has recently mastered the
best-available version to CD. If you have a flawless copy of that "upgrade" version on CD, please consider converting it to shn and spreading it around,
in place of this shn set. Thanks!
Right at the Dark Star > El Paso segue, there's several seconds of the jam
missing - chopped out! I checked my Bettyboard DAT and the segue is all there
and intact. But the SHNs are missing maybe 2 or maybe 4, 6 seconds.
I'm surprised no-one else has noted this. I suppose I can patch my WAVs
from my DAT... be faster for me then redoing the whole show from DAT...
me again. I just examined this show very carefully with Samplitude2496. Using my 8-27-72 Bettyboard
DAT, I recorded about a minute around the Dark Star >El Paso segue into a second track,
and compared. The .SHNs are missing exactly 2 second 2 frames at the track boundary.
In fact, all track boundaries in Disks 1, 2 and 3are also missing 2 seconds at each track
boundary! DON"T D/L this show from www.gdlive.com (thats where I got the bad SHNs from)
until there's a correct version up there.
For anyone following the story so far, I quote from an email on the subject from my husband Greg:
"The elision between Dark Star and El Paso was noted by someone months after it
[Diana's comment: I didn't realize that I hadn't put the updated info file in
"I listened to 5-6 different versions of this show, and all had differing cuts
"Of the 5-6 other copies I listened to, most had problems with poor mastering
[DSH further note: That finding of versions was back before January, of course.
