Notes: Casey Jones has brief low-level crackle possibly due to a bad
microphone; Wharf Rat has a thirty-second section of analog tape damage
leading to a cut during the song. There is an illegal bootleg available of
this date that apparently has no cut in Wharf Rat, but the cut has been
edited out and the song is about 30 seconds shorter than on the Betty reel.
No EQ has been performed. You hear what is on the Betty reels, as best as
we can get it to you.

  1. Errrrm… I wonder if I should bother downloading
    this one… ???????

    Only kidding 🙂 this is a keeper.
    Great stuff !! many thanks as always.

    An alternative transfer that circulates has this note about
    Wharf Rat:
    Reel flip during “Wharf Rat” smoothed to a nearly seamless
    state with a 4 measure loop and crossfade.

    Perhaps it was this got booted as per note above?
