130 min, Aud, B+ [source A]
86 min, Aud, B [source B]
The longer version doesn't have the soundcheck. The shorter one, which suffers from severe speed problems, cuts in Dupree's Paradise.
intros/soundcheck, Yellow Snow Suite, Farther Oblivion, Montana, Dog Meat, Cosmik Debris, Pygmy Twylyte, Inca Roads, Dupree's Paradise (q: Inca Roads), Big Swifty (q: BeBop Tango), Son Of Mr Green Genes/King Kong/Chunga's Revenge

Lineage source A: Audience tape, unknown gen->HD->SoundForge (speed correction, level adjustments, editing, patching in fills, tracking)->FLAC Frontend

Lineage source B: 1st gen reel->CDR->EAC->SoundForge (speed correction, level adjustments)

Here's an old favorite show of mine (read my review at I had a request for it in a recent trade, and at the same time I acquired a 1st gen of a new source (source B), so I thought it was a good time to piece together a definitive version. Source B turned out to be a disappointment, though - worse sound, incomplete and some very bad speed problems. But it did include a long intro/soundcheck segment not on source A, and it provided a fill for one of the tape flips. Though it seems it was taped on C60s, I think source A only had one tape flip with music missing, but logically there should be one in Dupree's Paradise too. If so, it has eluded me.
