~ NOTES by dug - May 6, 2016 ~
* this improvisation centres around a melody we find popping up later in MMW's shows: On April 14/2000 they open an acoustic show with a loose working of this melody but it's underdeveloped and never heard from again; the song first debuted in full on April 25/2007 as part of a short acoustic tour. A version of the song from that tour was later released on the 2012 live acoustic album Free Magic with the following title: Ballade In C Minor, 'Vergessene Seelen'. The song was then subsequently played on the Fall '12 and Spring '13 acoustic tours in support of the album. 'Vergessene Seelen' translates to "Forgotten Souls", so I labeled this improvisation 'Vergessene Improv' -- the forgotten improv. From 3:50-6:45 of the track is kind of a lead-in to the 'Vergessene' melody which comes in strong at that point and is the main theme for the following 6min or so.

+ "Mystery Gus" melody first introduced just past the 9min mark and solidified @10:05 of this track, might be from a real song but the only other place I've identified the melody is during the band's 4 instrumental performances of the Combustication tune 'Whatever Happened to Gus' in early 1999 (1/14, 1/16, 3/20 & 3/23) -- see The Shack Project 1999 page for links to the shows:

~ There is some debate as to what the correct date for this
show is. The DAT I recieved for this show was labeled 5/29/94.
Rumor has it that this show might be 5/24/94.
~ There is some clipping on this show in the first 30-40 seconds.
No edits were done in these spots.
~ There was a split second dropout at 1:08 in the Improv track (d1t01)
along with a couple millisecond spots of diginoise, all in the
right channel.  0.100 seconds of audio from the left channel
was cut and paste into these spots to clean these errors.
~ There was a 0.060 second dropout in the right channel of the
Improv track (d1t01) at 1:49.  0.065 seconds of audio from the left
channel was cut and paste to clean this error.
~ There was a 0.020 second dropout at 2:29 in the right channel of
d1t01 Improv track.  0.030 seconds of audio from the left channel
was cut and paste to fix this error.
~ There are two dropouts at 2:55 and 2:56 in the d1t01 Improv track
that are in both channels.  These are unfixable, but I was able
to smooth them out.
~ There are also dropout/diginoise spots in both channels at 4:46
and 5:12 in the d1t01 Improv track that are also unfixable.
~ There is a 0.015 second dropout in We're So Happy that was unfixable
because it is in both channels.
~ There was a split second spot of diginoise at 9:14 in the We're So
Happy > FAITU track that was only in the right channel.  0.100
seconds of audio from the left channel was cut and paste to fix
this errored spot.
~ There was a split second spot of diginoise at 16:24 in the Improv
after Syeeda's.  I patched the audio to fix the error.

03/06/2005 Could this have been a mislabeled DAT and the mic info really be AKG 414s? An S can look like a 5 pretty easily. As far as I know, there's never been AKG mics with a 4145 model number. Just a theory!
03/07/2005 twatts Yeah, I'm sure AKG 414s is correct. I have another tape from this time period from ATL, that was recorded using AKG 414s. Different band, maybe even different taper, but I kind of think that it was same taper - 414s are not very common...

03/08/2005 Mike The label on this DAT read AKG 4145 when I had it. I had DATs for 3.17.94 (anybody got a clean copy?) and 3.12.94 that had the same info on them. And now that I look at his list, he has AKG 4145 listed as the source info for all three shows. However, doing a simple google search shows no results for AKG 4145 other than this show, ha. So I would guess it has to be AKG 414s and was probably at one time mislabeled due to bad handwriting.

What really throws me for a loop is that the owner of this DAT told me that his buddy who taped it gave it to him when he quit taping. So apparently this DAT was the master. I'll email him and see what he says.

06/24/2005 shackaholic I've changed the mic info from AKG 4145 to AKG 414's.
