* with Hamza el-Din  



- The Hamza set was not included with this source and has not been spliced in.

- All tape pauses between tracks were cross faded.

- There are few glitches and dropouts present throughout.

- Right after Iko Iko, the left channel dropped down to darn near nothing. Rather than splice in the soundboard, I was
able to lift the RMS and save it up to mid drums, from this point on, there was not only the severe drop in the left
channel level, but some real heavy distortion became present. Left with the options to either splice in the soundboard or
make a mono patch from the right channel, I opted to make the mono patch and preserve the source as best as I could. You
can certainly hear the change. Overall, all things considered, this is a very nice source, my favorite show of the Egypt

- Some slight bass distortion and minor clicks present in the mono patch.

- This source is also subject to what some call hiss, I prefer analog warmth. Call it what you will :-)

- Ok, here is the story. Last week or so I was contacted by a fellow LL'er named moon. He Pm'ed me and asked
if he could seed some new sources for the 9/14/15/16/1978 shows. This really sparked my curiosity. The files were
transferred to my server to have a listen and look. After listening myself, and asking other respected members of the
communities opinion, we came to the conclusion these are new sources, I decided to have a go at just putting a
little polish on them, very little was done aside from the above listed patches and a gain bump since the files were
provided at 16/44.1. The taper did all the transfer work and passed this along anonymously, which he wishes to remain
and I will respect. The first set of this show was taped on mic stands. After the first set, the taper was asked to take
them down, so he impromptu began to stealth record the show, thus explaining the sonic changes, and the lack of wind noise
after the set break. Just as a disclaimer here, I'm in no way shape or form declaring this an upgrade, just an additional
source these deserve to circulate and I am happy to get this tapers work out there. Take what you want and leave the rest.

- Thanks to the anonymous taper, bagsgroove, and moon for helping get this to me and relaying information.
