As discussed at Deadlists, there's confusion concerning what was played 7/16 and what was played 7/17, and what was Set 1 and what was Set 2.
Last year I downloaded 2 mp3 sets from GDLive that I believe are 13958 (which is Viola Lee Blues thru Baby Blue) and 13959 (which is Big Boss Man thru Next Time You See Me).
89555 has all the tracks in both 13958 and 13959, plus several additional tracks.
I've pulled up and compared Good Morning Little Schoolgirl (13958 vs. 89555) and Big Boss Man (13959 vs. 89555) in Audacity. In each case, when you line up the two, they stay perfectly time-synched for their entire length (although the left & right channels are swapped), so they must have the same source.
But in each case the other source has substantially more high-end than 89555. If you focus on the cymbal, the amount of "missing sound" in 89555 is pretty striking. I suspect NR, but I'm no sound engineer. In any case, if someone could furnish Mr. Miller with lossless versions of 13958 and 13959, I'd think a combination of those with the added tracks from 89555 would make for a nice (easy) upgrade.
|02/03/2008||st33ve||Correcting my earlier comment, I now realize that, besides supplying 4 additional tracks, 89555 also adds a lot of between-tracks time that was cut from the GDLive versions, and also has complete (rather than chopped) versions of BIODTL and In the Pines. So I hereby withdraw the word "easy" from the last sentence of my first comment. (But I continue to think a combination that used the other sources as much as possible would be a significant upgrade.)|
|02/03/2008||st33ve||As a final note (or so I hope), (1) the mp3's I got from GDLive are all dated 10/18/99 (in case that helps nail down their source), and (2) the version of 89555 I'm comparing them to is the vbr mp3's from Internet Archive.|

I assumed you weren't the NR source (if it is NR) -- meaning that if NR was applied, it was applied before your source got to you. But I've compared a few more tracks since my previous posts, and in every case the time-synching is absolutely perfect (to the millisecond), so the 1999 GDLive mp3's and your source must have a common ancestor. And given that the GDLive mp3's have considerably more treble (and hiss), and assuming you didn't do anything that cut the high end, that leads me to think there must have been some intervening processing by somebody in between the common ancestor and your source. (I assume it couldn't be just an intervening tape generation or the speeds wouldn't match precisely.)
To further correct my original post, the 2 GDLive mp3 sets I downloaded have the exact same tracks as Serafin's (and dated the same -- i.e., VLB thru Baby Blue dated 7/16 and BBM thru NTYSM dated 7/17), but the intro and stage banter before and after VLB are broken out as separate tracks (plus, as I mentioned in my 2nd post, BIODTL and In the Pines are incomplete), so the GDLive mp3's were apparently from a source not listed at db.etree (rather than from Serafin). Maybe somebody else knows if a lossless version of the "enhanced treble source" is available for further upgrading.
PS: While I've got your ear, thanks for all your contributions.
