Houston, TX, USA
April 12, 1983
Early and Late shows
Mono SBD recorded on a Sony TC-D5M cassette deck using Maxell UDXLII C-90 Tape with Dolby B.
Played back on a Nak Dragon through an Avid MBox Mini III into a PC running WaveLab 6.11 software.
The resulting WAVs were tracked and faded in Audition.
Resulting WAVs were then converted to FLAC (Level 8) and .ffp's were generated using Trader's Little Helper.
The FLACs were tagged using foobar2000 v1.1.7.

If burning these 2 sets to audio discs, I'd suggest starting a new disc at each set's tape flip - between 12 & 13 for the early show, and between 15 & 16 for the late show. Otherwise, the transitions for continuous play are smoothed as best as I could.
