For this show we had two versions coming from the same source: �Live In Torino� and �Turin 1981�. The tracklist in �Torino� was in wrong order and �Just Another Boogie� was missing: so I used �Turin 1981� here.
On the beginning of the 1st cd-r the two channels were not equilibrated, so I added more intensity on the left channel: 60% on the first track (with 7db), 50% on the 2nd (with 6db), 40 on the 3rd (with 4 db) and 20%on the other tracks (with 2db) of cd1. The 1st track of cd n�2 needed 10% and nothing for the other tracks. Then I added a little more treble (but without any saturation).
Comparing with the other shows, in particular Firenze and Kiel, the speed was a little too slow and needed an acceleration of +2,64%. It sounds really better now and is a very good show!
�Can�t Stop� is cut at 5�35 and the beginning of �Just Another Boogie� is missing (probably due to the tape change by the taper, because it�s at 45� of the show).
Some little �jump� in the beginning of �I�m Writing You A Letter� and a noise at the end, now deleted. I deleted also some little defaults in �Good Morning Little Schoolgirl� at 1�32, in �Goin� Through The Door� at 6�48 and in �Can�t Stop� at 0�42.
Last, I reworked the beginnings/ends of the cd-r with fade- in/out.
