There is a digital artifact at the beginning of Don't Ease (the double strum) that is fixed (and noted as such) on the previous shn set. This is probably just a new transfer from the DATs and not a direct transfer from the reels to a HDD, as the txt file says. All told, a minimal improvement over the previous set, with the exception of the NRPS sets. Given that the right channel is weaker through much of this show, the previous, edited version is a better listen, unless you are purist that must have an unedited version.|
|07/16/2005||No, this is really a new transfer, coming from the same folks that brought us 9/20/70, 11/16/70 and the 4/26-29/71 run. IMHO this is a huge upgrade over the previous version, the new transfer has a overall better clarity, frequency responce & seperation. Listen to disc 7 where the old source is used to patch a missing reel. The diference is very noticable, old seed has a very annoying, grainy high end.|

It's interesting to note that, compared to the officially-released tracks from these shows (FOTD on the American Beauty reissue CD, and Easy Wind on the Fallout... CD), the left and right channels are switched.
Which way is "right", I wonder?
There is definitely a reason to doubt the lineage of this source. There is an apparent digital artifact in Don't Ease that was corrected in the other source, which has a PCM and DAT generation in the lineage.
In any case, upon further listening, this source sounds better than the previous one (the post-patch material is definitely inferior), but I am curious about how the Don't Ease double strum could have been on the master reels, since it sounds like a digital glitch, and the previous source notes explain that it was repaired. The suggests that either this is simply a new transfer from the previous source DAT or PCM, or the glitch is on the reels, which doesn't make much sense. It doesn't sound like an analog glitch.
