Mastering Notes:
The EAC log is included, but I did rejoin the ripped .WAV files before mastering and re-tracking. I trimmed off some extraneous stuff at the start and end, so the total time from the log won't match the final files.

Show Notes:
For your listening pleasure here is a pretty rare (by my estimation), seeing-torrent-land-for-the-first-time of Ginger Baker's cult-classic band Masters Of Reality, opening for Alice In Chains.

Far from my best capture, it's yet again a solid, early document of this rarely taped (then) band. (listen to the samples). Sony D3 with the supplied PC-62 mic. Nice and moody and gritty and dark.

Thank Dennis for his time, as he's a master of uploading.

My reality is fucking off.

Day by day.

More. To. Come.
