A good audience recording. Bass is a little distorted. Only the first half of the concert was recorded, unfortunately. I've shared a different transfer of this recording before, but it was transferred with an inferior deck and I felt it could be mastered better as well. I was able to get an excellent noise print, so the noise reduction worked very well. Automatic phase correction fixed the stereo balance for the most part, and the EQ & multiband compressor lessened the excessive bass and made the high end a little more prominent.
Many thanks to elviz101 for taping this recording, and generously shipping the cassette to me for the transfer.
