Unless the "C" rating is way off,& I have the same source,(A- to B+ aud),my copy of this is damn nice.Nak 300 w/2shotgun mics, I believe.|

|05/31/2005||neo_levo||i stand by my comment that compared to other sources that circulate from this era the quality is not that good. w/o actually comparing the sources there's no way of knowing whether its the same source or same generation. there are no other sources on the lists of the folks who in general have seeeded the vast majority of garcia recordings over the last half a decade. if someone is new around or here or would now like to share something they have with everyone else, it would be greatly appreciated.|
|06/04/2005||XDennis Carter||Neo is right, I'am sure now.I probrally have the same source as everyone else, I just don't agree with the C- rating. That threw me a little, as I think this would be more of a B+.Anything I would rate a C-, would be total crap, which this recording is not.I have had a cassette copy for years, that I got from the taper, in one of several trades we did back in early 1980.I met him at a GD show,(11/30/79),& subsequintly got this 2/20/80 from him. He listed his equiptment used on the 8/30/80 tapes he sent me,same deck & mics he used for this 2/20/80 JGB,& 2/15/80 JGB,which was: 2 Sony ECM 23f's > NAK 550.The disc I now have of 2/20/80 & 2/15/80,quality wise, match the cassettes,pound for pound.Therefor,I trust this source info to be correct.|
i try to be pretty subjective when i give a grading. a C- isn't bad either - its below average. just like school.
A B grade aud is your typical 1991 JGB tour. A good A-grade aud is any of chuck vasseur's recordings.
the reason i gave this a c- is the analog gen, the loud crowd, and the relative lack of any appreciable dynamic range on the recording. that said, the performance is awesome. if i gave everything an A or B it would be meaningless.
btw - if you still have the 8/30/80 cassette and want to get it transferred to FLAC drop me an email ;)
