Transfer: EAC (in secure mode w/proper offsets) -> FLAC


I bought this about 15 years ago in a head shop in Burlington, VT, when I was in college there. It came complete with the typical misspelled song titles and pictures that have nothing to do with the actual show, such as shots of Jerry from the 90's, and photos of Brent who obviously wasn't yet with the band. The tracking was really screwy as well. It has absolutely no identifying information such as name of the label or date of release. However, it does sound pretty darn good, in my opinion.

All I did was rip it, reassemble the tracks into one long .wav file with Wavmerge, and retrack it with Audacity so that the tracks made sense. I think it sounds much better than the only other source available at this time - shnid #294. I don't hear any of the EQ, compression, or noise reduction which is suspected to have been used on that source. I'm not an expert so your mileage may vary. If I knew how to do it properly I would fix the levels, which seem kind of low. Hopefully someone with the skills to do it right will remaster this and make it sound just exactly perfect - or maybe this seed will prompt someone to release an even better source for this spectacular show.

I've compared the two and as far as I can tell this has the same cuts/reel flips as shnid #294. It also sounds like one of the tracks is still missing for the entire encore, with Keith and one of the drummers AWOL.

11/18/2007 cool_breeze d3t03 (Sugar Magnolia) and d3t05 (OMSN) both have long periods of silence at the end of the track, about 23:30 for Sugar Magnolia and 7+ minutes for OMSN.
11/21/2007 carneymatt Yes - this fileset is flawed. The long silences must have occurred when I was retracking it. This was my first attempt at doing anything like this and I didn't find the errors until after I uploaded it. PLEASE DO NOT CIRCULATE THIS VERSION. I uploaded a fixed version in which I removed the silences and fixed several other problems.
