This month has a been a huge winfall for me and finding a whole lot of new BB King recordings.

Which will benefit all the blues fans. This was a bit of a project for me to put together.

When I started listening to Source 2. I noticed the tape speed was about half a note low.

Luckily there is another Source 1, that plays at perfect pitch. I used that as a guide to pitch correct this new source.

It needed to go up +5.5 semitones to match Source 1. Once that was done, I started using Source 1 as a patch on 3 different spots.

With this new Source 2, we finally have the beginning of the show. Source 1 started late and was missing the beginning few minutes.

Track 9 'When It All Comes Down'. in itself was a major project, it had 2 tape cuts.

It needed 2 patches inside the track at these spots: 0:00 - 0:08 and 7:48 - 8:19.

Neither source had a complete tk 9. I only had a few seconds of material that overlapped to piece them together.

I had to amplify the fade outs to pull up a few more seconds of sound to make the 2 sources meet, that's how close this patch was.

It was some of the trickiest editing I've had to do in a long time.

I was quite relived that I was able to piece the 2 sources together.

The other patch was at the ending of the last track. Track 16 'When the Saints Go Marching In'. Patch used from 2:16 - 2:46.

When I was done with the pitch and patch, it turned out really nice. You'll be hard pressed to hear the source changes.

Now for the first time, we have the show in 100% complete form.

Thanks to Scott for suppyling the tapes that had been in storage for 30 years.

If anyone else thinks they have a rare BB King show, please get in touch with me.
