Thanks to all the hard work from the folks mentioned above with
their loving care getting these sources out.  Also a thanks for
some of the images used in creation of the artwork.  I found them
years ago on the net and do not have any way to properly credit.  


Notes on the Source Material

SBD (ShnID = 80840)
Perfectly balanced and flawless SBD recording and perfect transfer
by Charlie Miller.  This is the SBD source with the songs patched
using an upgraded cassette SBD. These patched tunes are also in near
perfect condition.  Other than some slight speed flux it was hard
to even know these tunes were sourced from a cassette.  The patch
job, splice into the DSBD source, was very well done.

AUD1 (ShnID = 31211)
Nice sounding above average tapers section recording. Made directly
to DAT. Nice balanced sound, no flaws and a clean transfer.

AUD2 (ShnID = 17704)
After a few DSP tweaks (primarily level adjustments and some D'EQ)
I found this FOB to be the best of the 3 AUD recordings.  That is
why it has the largest % mixed into the stereo matrix and why it
has a lion's share mix in the rear channels for the 5.1 versions.

AUD3 (ShnID = 443)
Another great FOB slightly more "muddy" than the other Schoeps
source recording.  I believe the 2 FOBs were made in different
locations b/c of the overall sound and time travel btwn the kick
drum and the high hat I think AUD2 was a bit closer than this
FOB.  Plus there are different sounds from crowd, cheers, etc.


Tech Notes

FLAC/SHNs were decoded to wave. Wavmerge was used to reassemble
the tracks back to 1 long wave.  CEP2.0 was used to align & synch
all sources (time compress and expand).  CEP2.0 was used for the
multitrack mixdown on the front, surround and Sub/LFE channels.  
SF8.0 was used for the EQ setting on AUD2 pre mixdown.  SF8.0
was used to EQ the center and LFE channels and perform the hard
limiting on the LFE channel.  SF8.0 used to adjust volume for the
center, surround and LFE channels.  Surcode MLP was used to encode
all six channels utilizing a lossless compression scheme. DiscWelder
was used to author and create the DVD-Audio in 5.1 and created the
ISO image files.  This incorporates 6 channels of 24/48 wave files.

Right Channel +1db to even things out on the SBD source

The following songs patched from Cassette Master SBD: Little Red
Rooster, Ramble On Rose, Jack-A-Roe, Memphis Blues and Row Jimmy.
The cassette SBD patch material is excellent and the source change
is undetectable.

Level adjustment and some Digital EQing was applied to the AUD2
source prior to mixdown.

An occasional smack can be heard on these recordings that seem to be
coming from a drummer hitting the rim or poor mic placement on one
of the drum kits.  This happens approx 5 times throughout the show.


Editorial Comments

Fun time at these 2 shows.  I drove down during mid-terms week
at URI with myself and 4 very good friends.  We drove my 1967
Mercedes 230s - a classic.  We decided on that trip that the car
could shrink or expand to fit our needs.  You didn't really drive
this car, it drove you and you tried your best to negotiate. I
left a full pack of smokes on the rear bumper of the car and when
we stopped again for gas 300 miles later the smokes were still
there.  Now that is a boat of a car!

A person in our group had family that lived in Virginia and was
able to send his brother to venue and buy tickets for us in
advance of the show.  A good thing as the first night was a very
hard ticket.  Another group of URI friends also made the road trip
and did not get into the Saturday night, Oct 8th show.  We stopped
by their hotel room but it was not a pretty scene.  Some very
disappointed, grumpy folks that had no desire to speak with us
about the great show. The next night, Oct 9th everyone got it.  
It was the night for the heads as the weekend warriors left after
Saturday's show thinking they'd seen "the" show.  Wrong!

It was a very cool parking lot scene at Hampton to say the least.  
Everyone buzzing over these last minute shows added to the Fall
Tour.  Under the original name The Warlocks ta-boot.  The Dupree's
handed out that weekend had an announcement that said something
like "Do you want to hear some oldies?  Get ready, here they come".  
Someone at Dupree's Diamond News obviously had some inside info.
