**24/48 Masters do exist at the unedited/pre-processed level**

There were volume corrections done to lessen the distortion that comes from the board at certain points....I had to adjust the levels, Esther was louder than I kinda "re-mixed" the levels on an overall scale...

*there is a "click" in this song that sounds like an EQ or emphisis unit was switched on or off..It is confirmed to be present on the master....the levels drastically change as does the overall EQ curve and tonality of the rest of the show from this point onward. I tried to match the EQ curve as best I could, and match the levels. This does result in some hiss being more pronounced, and a slight change in the tonality of the recording. I tried to make this transition as smooth as possible. From the point the click happens onward there is some DeNoising being done with the WavesLTD X-Noise.

Widespread Panic opened.

Set 2 is missing from the tapers collection. If it surfaces, we'll transfer it.
Otherwise, this is all there is from this source.

NO tracking/editing/alterations performed before archiving to 24-bit FLAC
(except to trim silence from the ends).

11/05/2003 A. Davis scans from the master cassette are available for download
03/06/2004 Weave As part of the Old School Phish Project, I have been scanning the tape covers, ticket stubs (if I have them) and the "Phish Update" newsletters (if I have them).

If you are interested, you can find them here:

Each show has it's own folder. All the shows released so far are out there.
I've also included the MD5s and TXT files.

If you distribute these SHNs, please include these extras.

You can visit this forum for comments made during the transfer/mastering/listening process:
