16 bit version

Two recording composite
Taper: D.F. (Dirty, Filthy) Stinkpickle
Gear tape 1 (SBD): DR-02
Gear tape 2 (AUD): CA14's > CA9100 > DR-07
Mastered by }{eywood
Lineage: DR-02 & DR-07 (wav @ 24/48) > USB > Adobe Audition 1.5 (multitrack synchronization, slight EQ to lift bass & reverb on SBD tape, EQ on aud tape to accentuate audience, mixing, normalization, splits & fades, conversion to 16/44.1, peak limiting) > TLH (SBE fix, flac 8)

I got lucky enough to get both a soundboard recording and an audience recording from this show. I brought the low end up a bit on the SBD tape, synced it with the AUD tape that I EQ'd to reduce overtones and accentuate the audience and did a mix. The AUD tape is very low in the mix (25%) during the songs because the SBD tape sounded pretty good. Bewtween tracks and anywhere there's interaction it's at about 75% to get the applause.
