Notes:
-Patrick Gym was a typical shoe-box basketball gym: stage at one end,
chairs going up the middle, and aprx 15 rows of bleachers along the back wall.
-Source "A" is very listenable, and sounds like it was taped on the floor.
-Source "B" has many problems, possibly taped further back (in the bleachers?).
-Source "B" is muffled and boomy throughout, and has much more audience noise.
-The last 56 seconds of Deal is different from source "A" (possibly source "B"?).
-Smoothed tape beginnings, ends, tape-flips, and blurry pauses between tracks.
-Adusted volume of How Sweet It Is downward, to match the rest of source "A".
-Normalized volume and adjusted pitch for 56-second patch at end of Deal.
-One-second drop-out at 0:16 of Roadrunner (left as is).
-Removed some hiss in the highest band due to cassette generations.
-Removed some low-end in source "B" to limit the overpowing boominess.
-Removed further hiss in right channel of source "B" and normalized gain.
-Smoothed many volume fluctuations that were present throughout source "B".
-Smoothed-down a few harsh yells in source "B"; left the claps mostly as-is.
-Removed a tape-flip music-overlap (not from master) in Don't Let Go,
and seemlessly patched the two parts back together to one track.
-Pathed left channel over right for applause after Tangled Up, due to dropouts.

Until a better tape surfaces, this is what we have for this great Nov-81 show.
Highlights are standout versions of Let it Rock, Don't Let Go, and Dixie.
ENJOY! 3/13/05
