Audience recording > "Wet Show" Bootleg (Tarantura Label) > CDR
Transfer : CDR > EAC > xACT1.5b3 > flac(8)
Changes Made (Nero 7):
Adjusted phase, -0.15msec d1, +0.15msec d2tr01-11, none d2tr12-13 (different source?)
- fixes left balance bias on headphones & right bias on speakers
- instruments now more centrally located in the stereo image field
Reuced right channel by 20% on disk 1 only
Cross-mixed channels (97:3 disk1 and 95:5 disk2)
- instruments / drums clearer and sharper
- more bass and background ambience
Fixed a number of glitches and (mic?) bumps.
Fixed a number of short balance fluctuations
Quality: Now worth an A++ for the solo disk1, A+ for Crazy Horse disk2
The original is a good raw sounding recording, but with shrill treble, phasey balance
offset and little bass / background ambience, all of which have now been fixed (above).
Now it is a wonderful listen, especially the solo tracks, with good clear instruments,
excellent stereo image and improved bass / background ambience...

Original notes >>>
I don't usually source shows from bootlegs, but this is an
exception. I just got this from a UK Eric Clapton collector who
follows the Japanese bootleg releases. This recording of the first
show of 1976 Japanese Tour is from a previously uncirculated
master and contains a previously uncirculated second encore of
Cortez The Killer. This is a recent release from the apparently
exclusive Tarantura label and is supposed to be direct from the
original cassette masters.
The sound is stellar. Even better I think than the excellent
version previously circulated on Dime by the always generous edtyre.
