often circulates labeled AUD but is probably SBD with very bad levels.”
To me it sounds like it’s definitely an AUD….)

Will’s reel was dubbed in the spring of 1979 and to the best of my knowledge, has been the source to the circulating version. However, in this case, Pat Lee dubbed his reel off of will’s so it could have been Pat’s reel that has been the source through the years. I do know Will’s reel has hardly been played and in pristine condition and the results bear this out- Matt Smith

Audience patches come from master tapes recorded by Gene Taback aka Snoid at LL. He and sent to me for this project. Some mastering and pitch correction was performed to improve the sound. The Johnny B Goode is on Gene’s tape but likely isn’t from that night, but we left it just because we wanted and because memories still seem hazy. Almost no music is missing from this now, short of the casey jones..2 patches in darkstar, 2 in china cat and tons of others. enjoy.

Another slightly better audience tape is in the works. This may be re-released some day.
As it stands, certainly an enjoyable listen.

Original Restoration notes:
– Increased opening levels for Bertha (first 3 minutes or so of the song).

– Music! Music! Music! tuning after Bertha.

– Level corrected for the first 20 seconds of Playing in the Band.

– Stella Blue – Left channel record levels (overadjustment and overcompensation) smoothed about 3 minutes in.

– Truckin’ had some odd gain increases for guitars in the left channel. I wasn’t certain if they were part of the performance or part of the recording, but Weir overpowered the rest of the music. I lowered the levels in the left channel so that you can still hear what they are doing and it’s louod but it’s not overly loud. I also increased the right channel (Garcia) when it happens during a guitar interplay/jam. The same thing happens with Phil during the quiet part of the jam, but you can hear the pot open, etc. so pretty certain this was a recording mistake. I did the same with it.

– I cut out several tape start/stop spots (I think that is what they were) between The Other One and Deal. This is also where a tape flip/new tape would have needed to be used.

– The “cut of death” in The Other One (see below, I muted the space between and faded out the stop/start sections (less than a second), so the cut is still obvious but not too bad.

– Speed was off slightly a little unpredictable, likely because of the multiple generations of cassettes. It’s not noticeable while listening, so I left Set I alone except for Jack Straw and corrected most of the issues in set II.

– Jack Straw was patched in with a different recorder during analog editing, but from what appears to be the same master tapes. Likely moved at one point to fit on cassettes then moved back after digital transfer – the patch is at 46 minutes into Set II and cuts the
end of Stella Blue). There would have been 10 minutes at the end of the second cassette for it, and there was a bass note that did not belong, so that’s likely where it was. I left the bass note in in case someone else wants to sleuth a bit.

– I left the cuts in UJB as they were.

– One of the recorders had an annoying ‘bump’ every few seconds but it’s most evident in a few quiet parts between songs.

Thanks to BCE, Germain and the original seeders and those who transferred.

Comments by Craig on SHNID 5801 (etree.org):
-there are no segues from TOO>Deal, Deal>Sugar Mag or JB Goode>UJB
-Stella Blue cuts @ 7:19
-cut of death in The Other One @ 11:03,
-2 cuts in UJB(1:05 & 3:01). At 3:05>end, sound becomes duller

-There is a minor splice during the first few notes of Baby Blue.
-Casey Jones is cut.
-The beginning of Lovelight is clipped.
-Some of the minor volume level fluctuations were adjusted using Sound Forge.
-Major volume fluctuations render much of Baby Blue as virtually unlistenable,
and this is noted on the master at deadlists.com.
-There is some oversaturation during louder moments of the second set.

comments from the original uploader:
It’s still far from perfect. The biggest problems occur where it was necessary to make large boosts to the left channel and this introduced artifacts that were not present before. This is most noticeable during d2t04.

This is for Richard, who suggested this show could sound better.
