While visiting my friend Jerry Wolcott in Bellingham during the summer of 1981 I met someone from a local record store.
Live tapes became a topic and this was the result of the only trade we made.
It is a first generation copy of the master.
Over time I lost track of the taper.

Unknown recording information other than stereo audience.
This copy has the applause sections snipped a second or so after each song ends.
During the editing process I attempted to smooth out these abrupt transitions.

Some individual claps and some microphone bumps were removed during the clean-up process.
Volume and balance adjustments were done as required.
Audacity wave editor was used to do all this and to down convert to 16-44.
No postproduction digital noise reduction or equalization.
Thanks to the original taper whose name I cannot remember after all these years.

Lovely B'ham Washington is such a great place.
Still have fond memories of those college daze living on High Street in the early 70's.
