^ Referred to as Punch Me in the Eye at end of song
* With additional verse and instrumental section (as on 10-01-89) which became
   the song "Don't Get Me Wrong" on the Dude of Life's "Crimes of the Mind" album.
** With "Sesame Street Theme" and "Manteca" teases.

-Fantastic sound quality with no noticeable hiss in set 1!!!
-I received this show as Cass/0 for both sets but after comparing the hiss levels,
  it is apparent that set 2 has gone through more cassette gens than Set 1.  After
  referencing the Phish SBD's in Circulation list, which lists set 2 as Cass/x, I have
  notated the show as the same.
-There is some background noise in set 1 seemingly due to another band playing (mostly
  in right channel of mix and most noticeable between tracks and during d1t10).
-Tape flip d1t08 15:07 (46:46)
-Volume drop in d2t04 0:05-0:11 right channel only
-Muffled sound in d2t05 5:44-6:00
-In Set 2, the right channel is lower than the left but I left that alone to avoid
  having a higher hiss level in the right.
-Set 2 is incomplete, but the rest of the songs are unknown.

-Removed 'thump' in R channel in d1t09 4:55 (0.105 sec) by replacing R channel
  with L channel
-In set 2, performed Cool Edit hiss reduction based on noise floor sample in d2t03
  with a hiss reduction factor of 6.5 dB

03/10/2002 Will Herrmann I wanted to comment on the "background noise" during the first set. This noise was the result of using a recycled analog cassette to master the show. I was the one who did the original analog->DAT conversion. I acquired the master cassette from the original taper, and following the end of set 1, the remainder of the cassette revealed the music which was earlier recorded onto it (sounded like a studio release from a rock/blues band). Too bad the taper didn't use a fresh blank for the recording.

Also, here is the complete lineage for the analog to DAT transfer: Cassette Master (Metal, Type 4 cassette)->Nakamichi CR1A analog deck->Sony PCM-M1 DAT Recorder.

I can also verify that the partial second set is not of the same origin as set 1. I received a copy of set 2p (unknown generation) in a tape trade around the same time I did the transfer of set 1. This tape also had the complete set 1, but the sound quality was inferior to the set 1 master cassette, and I only used the partial second set from the tape when doing the DAT transfer.
