Notes:

This set is a patched version of the set described in the Etree database at
http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=3360. This source claims to be a DSBD, but is
really more likely a cassette soundboard transferred to DAT. This source as originally
posted had several songs with dropouts and also cuts at the beginnings of Carolina, Bowie,
Golgi and Oh Kee Pah Ceremony. The patch source is an uncirculated compilation I made from
two other sources.

There have been a couple of circulating sources of this show. The two in the Etree
database appear to be from the same original source tape. The earlier, seeded by Caleb
Epstein (http://db.etree.org/shninfo_detail.php?shnid=436), had several flaws, some of
which are noted in the database. Said flaws include a cut at the beginning of Carolina,
missing samples in AC/DC Bag, Runaway Jim, Mike's and YEM, a cut, and some static and
clicks in Golgi, clicks in Rocky Top and Llama, a cut and static at the beginning of Bowie
and the beginning of Mike's Song was on the end of Llama and on its own track. There were
also some issues with consistency in volume during the first set and between the first and
second sets. The source mentioned above has the same cuts (the cut in Bowie is most likely
a tape flip), but dropouts in mostly different tracks. This suggests the sources are from
two different DATs from the same original analog tape.

There was, at one time, another source on nugs.net. This source was, unfortunately,
severely flawed, with clicks and skips in many tracks, particularly Caravan and Contact.
It did, however, contain some of the missing material from the Epstein source, in
particular the opening notes of Golgi. I put together a compilation source from these, but
did not circulate it for a couple of reasons, primarily the processing I did on it after
patching the tracks. I used this compilation source to patch the main source of this set.

Some of the cuts were common to all sources, notably the tape flip in the beginning of
Bowie and the missing beginning of Carolina. However, I was able to seamlessly patch all
of the dropouts and a few of the other missing sections of the more widely circulated Etree
source. The following is a list of flaws I was able to repair:

- patched missing beginning of Golgi
- patched missing samples in Caravan (:54)
- patched missing samples in Runaway Jim (5:51)
- patched missing samples in YEM (4:36)
- patched beginning of Oh Kee Pah/crowd at end of Jim
- patched missing samples in Bowie (4:55)
- patched end of show (announcement after Highway to Hell)
- fixed clicks in Jesus Just Left Chicago at 9:04

Once patched, I ran the entire show through shntool to fix the track breaks. The show can
be burned as listed above on three 74 minute discs, or it can be burned on one 74 minute
and one 80 minute disc by adding the encore to the end of disc 2.

Enjoy!

Notes from JT (Feb. 05):

Let me start by saying this was one of the first bootlegs I ever got, and remains my
favorite Phish show that I never saw. So bear that in mind as you ponder why I might go to
so much trouble to fix what amounts to about three seconds of audio ;-)

The following updates were made to John Beatty's fine mastering of this show compiled from
several sources in order to integrate a couple other corrections. One of them (Bowie) I
had made long ago to my own imperfect copy of this show; the Carolina fix is new. With
these changes, this version of this excellent show is essentially complete and uncut.

Any tracks not specifically referenced below are unchanged from John's version.

Notes from JT (Feb. 05):

Let me start by saying this was one of the first bootlegs I ever got, and remains my favorite Phish show that I never saw. So bear that in mind as you ponder why I might go to
so much trouble to fix what amounts to about three seconds of audio ;-)

The following updates were made to John Beatty's fine mastering of this show compiled from several sources in order to integrate a couple other corrections. One of them (Bowie) I had made long ago to my own imperfect copy of this show; the Carolina fix is new. With these changes, this version of this excellent show is essentially complete and uncut.

Any tracks not specifically referenced below are unchanged from John's version.

Carolina: Recreated opening
ph1990-11-04d1t01.wav

The missing part of Carolina (first phrase) was recreated using the 2nd phrase and some slieght of hand. The result is not perfect but it's pretty darn close. There is still what
sounds like a tiny digital hiccup at the transition between the "faked" part and the real part, but I think it sounds very natural overall. I used the Carolina from 4/11/91 as a
reference for the pace of the opening chorus and did the following:

1) Amplified faded-in portion from John's source to match the overall levels and recover as much existing data as possible

2) "Recreated" intro using a piece from the 2nd "Carolina" phrase:
.. increased tempo 20% to approximate the slightly faster introductory chorus
.. pitch shifted a tiny bit at the end of my splice to make the transition to the
"real" part less noticeable

3) Increased voume 200% following the 2nd phrase to correct a source volume adjustment and bring the overall levels a little closer to the rest of the set. The last five seconds
(dead air) were faded back to 100% for a seamless transition to the next track

My Sweet One -> Bowie transition
ph1990-11-04d1t09.wav
ph1990-11-04d1t10.wav

Since data was missing, this had to be doctored somwehat to hide the dropout. John had cleaned this up by getting rid of the dropout; my version attempts to make it audibly seamless by faking the transition from MSO to Bowie. This was done by moving the starting notes of Bowie (duplicated from lsewhere in the intro) into the end of My Sweet One before the dropout; merging some extra audience cheering; and crossfading all the kludges as needed. This rewrites history a bit but I think it makes the transition seamless and natural sounding.


That's it. Enjoy.
