FM Reel-to-Reel

Uploader notes: Known jokingly here in the local area as “The Never Ending Concert”, due to the enormous time the Dead took between tracks tuning up. In fact, your humble seeder (me, that is!) took the time to seperate the tuneups from the showpieces themselves. This is so you can just burn the music if you desire. The recording is mostly intact, with a couple of cuts due to tape flips. Taped off the air live as it happened,
Ladies and Gentlemen – The Grateful Dead!

Encoding notes:
This show circulates as two folders grouped by disc number. In order for these to properly sort in any media player, it was necessary to renamed the tracks.

Tagging notes:
Show information is embedded within the header of each flac file. It will display on any player capable of directly playing flac files. If converted to wav during processing, all tags will be stripped, however audio data will remain unaffected. If you must transcode to a lossy format, do so directly Flac > Lossy.
Use st5 to validate audio integrity.Md5 values will change if tagging is altered.

  2. Rather Unique place in Passaic to say the least. Grate shows though, there is a popular video off the night before . This night was definitely one of contradictions as noted with the comments. We waited seemingly like forever as the band tinkered around, tuning, Jer smoking away etc…Then they played, nice and polished, a lot of Terrapin material was played.But the “moment “for me was Terrapin Station>Morning Dew.
    It us a luxury here since we now can now choose to keep the the tune ups or not.. I’m DL this one so i can stop FF after every track as I’ve been accustomed to.

    Thx for the tunes!

  3. Thanks for the comments Street Pig. Would have loved to see them at this stage, but alas I was but a baby.
