Total Time ::: 1:05:21
::: Lovely EXC- wide stereo AUD with low vox. Check samples to play chicken&run, or play ball & �Get your red hots right here!�.
::: If a bit bright, adjust treble to your liking. I may revisit this at a further date to try to warm the sound up a bit more.
::: This Mk2 version is MUCH clearer & more cleaned up. The other Mk1 version is for purists or those who would do their own remastering.
::: COMPARISON CLAUSE: This is the superior Mk2 remaster with EQ & NR & many more fixes. The Mk1 slightly remastered version, without EQ or NR, may be found elsewhere.
::: Warts: Repaired dullspots & dropouts but surely missed a few. Low vocals thruout. Bit o' hiss. Some very low level distortion in parts but not too obtrusive. Cuts between most songs. Some volume fluctuations left but mostly fixed. Claps in music repaired or reduced one at a time but didn't get 'em all.
::: (*) Tape said 1972-x03-xx but there was no Long Beach "The British Are Coming" March gig. Since city & venue were named & Mac played Long Beach 2 months later, the May date was used.
::: Bill: Fleetwood Mac / McKendree Spring / Ashton, Gardner & Dyke. Tickets $4.50/$4.00.
::: The band was promoting their "Bare Trees" album, recorded 1971-1972 & issued March 1972.
::: PRICE CONTRAST: NYC 2019 F.Mac advance tix $194-$3,068 +$fees$. 50 to 685 times more expensive. NO typos!
::: Fox West Coast Theatre opened July 1925 & closed November 1985 & seated 2,038. Cool looking venue!
::: R.I.P. Daniel David Kirwan (13 May 1950 � 8 June 2018).

DimeTravel 426 ::: Thanks to the original taper & traders! MEGA thanks to The Florida Kid! Thanks to hendrixfan1995 for the differential EQ program & all the advice. As is so often the case, additional thanks are owed to DIMER gv0000 for supplying asst info. ::: Corrections welcome. ::: A VERY worthwhile Kirwin memorial upload - many of us have been living with his music regularly for about 5 decades. May dedicated DIMER glasnostrd19 jump for joy. Sounds like taper was front center, too close to get the PA speakers, with mikes spread very wide towards the stage so instruments are all clear & immediate, but vocals quite low. People sometimes make requests for songs without even yelling. This reminds me of the Grateful Dead in a few places with both interplay & jamming. Cool how different some of the songs are from other circulating live versions. Many Welch aspects that people take issue with are quite tempered here - very low level rock clich� attitude, with full-on, sweltering guitar to the fore (even tho' I love the guy's music, sometimes the banter is a bit much). Some of the most dripping, psychedic-tinged, jammed out guitars ever from post-Green Mac... Danny's dueling, too. Check out the bass playing in "Homeward Bound" - John's flying! First time I've ever been able to properly hear some of the live interactions between these musicians in this specific era of the band. The band is still taking some chances here, whereas by 1974, while I really enjoy the shows, they were not going out on a limb. This one IS a revelation & has the potential to change the way many people think about the post-Peter & offer them a lot more respect. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees
