ORIGINAL NOTES FROM TAPER (still relevant, except for the tracking note as this version is tracked - dug)

Sound: quite good, typical open-air sound with occasional problems - see below


The recording is presented as two long audio files, the split between them corresponding to the disc change. As I am not familiar with the titles, I determined the track markers according my guesses, but I present the CUE lists as generated by CDWave rather than splitting the files, allowing users to revise the CUE files for themselves (please note that CUE files were generated from FLAC, and not from the WAV files!). Please feel free to upload revised CUE files and the setlist, to make some cool artwork for which you can use my photos and scan.

Timings: 66:24 and 21:50

Some photos made by me and a scan of the program booklet cover are included.

Known problems:

- there was a relatively strong wind during the show, which, unfortunately, caused low-frequency rumplings in the recording. I stood just next to the mixing board which was covered by a tent, providing a partial shield against the wind. Due to this, rumplings were usually present in one channel only. Here I used the "good" channel to replace the "windy" one. This of course ruined the stereo image but this is not a serious problem since there were no big stereo effects. In places where rumplings were present in both channels, I applied a low-cut filter which of course removed some of the bass content of the music itself. These wind-affected parts are typically maximum 10 s long.

- there were occasional short (tenths of a second) drop-outs. I removed them and seemlessly joined the two sections. However, these edits are audible.

- some seconds of music are lost because of disc change

- from time to time, I had to change my place because of people walking, speaking etc. This caused audible changes in the sonic image.

I am aware of the fact that this recording is not up to the standards the equipment would otherwise have allowed. I sincerely apologise for the problems. (In fact, I expected that, considering that MMW is a band with open taping policy, and there are some excellent tapers residing in Warsaw, someone will show up with a good recording. Apparently, the present one is the only one in Dime.) I also noticed the presence a professional camera from TV Polska. I don't know if the whole show was recorded but if so, it would be nice to have it here. :-)

Relevant links:

Recorded, edited and shared on DaD by eref2000. Please share freely, never buy or sell, do not encode to lossy formats, do not alter the sound without the taper's approval.

[This fileset is an ID3 tagged version of]

Traders Little Helper used for creating checksums:
- FLAC ST5 & MD5 generated for original FLACs
- FLAC ID3 tagged files matched to original FLAC ST5
- FLAC MD5 generated for ID3 tagged files (t-flac.md5)

MP3Tag (current version) used for all ID3 tagging:
- The metadata ID3 tags can be read by any player that plays FLAC files.
- ID3 tags will be stripped if converted to WAV, however audio data will be unaffected

Use FLAC ST5 to validate audio integrity.
(Alternatively, the FLAC FFP contains the same checksum values.)
t-FLAC MD5 values will change if ID3 tags are altered.
Original FLAC MD5 & ST5 included for reference
