I already posted an upgraded version from this show in September 2016 - here are my (slightly reworked) comments from back then:
This show was posted on IORR by �Riccardo�99� the tapes were coming from �Crazy Mama� and the original tapers were given credit on the artwork with "to Brigitte and G�nter : I thank you all a lot for your generosity".
Listening to the tape I was thinking that it can be improved and so I tried. :
First I equalized it (adding little more medium frequencies) and then I amplified it (+ 4db), I rebalanced both channels and at last I amplified the final result.
I also upgraded the beginning/end of the cd's, cut the default coming from the recording in track 08 (�Can�t Stop�) (from 5�20 till 5�30), cut the gap at the end of the tracks on CD n�2: the transitions are better but a little rough, also at the end of �Band introduction/Help Me�, two gaps on �Choo Choo Mama�, and the end of �Sweet Little Sixteen� remain drought.
I created a new artwork to include this show in the series.
