Master audience recording of the Sisters. Applause has been balanced and talk levels raised.
This is an exceptionally fine performance. One new song, Joel's violin was brilliant, the McGarrigles were in perfect voice, extra talkative and funny all contribute. Enjoy.
Faults: Audience is mostly very respectful. But there is a occasional wood knocking type of sound repeating in stretches and in time to the music. Probably from the audience, but possibly from stage. None of this should seriously detract.

I went to the master cassette for the transfer. Unfortunately it did not play properly. Happily, years ago I had a DAT transfer done by SM using an azimuth-adjusted Nac. The DAT played perfectly, So:
cassette > Nac > DAT (@16/48) > DAT clone > Sony R500 > R44 (@24/48) > HD > Soundforge (@24/48: trim, edit, fades, L2 level adjust) > r8brain (vhq downsample) > Soundforge (L2 dither) > CDwave (track cut) > TLH (flac level 8, ffp, md5) > TLH (torrent) > DIME
