Total Time ::: 1:13:00
::: Very fine quality, up-close, EXC stereo AUD in small club. Check samples for revulsion or elation revelations.
::: Warts: Repaired dullspots & dropouts but surely missed a few. #06-10 R channel sometimes annoying background overload esp.w/headphones (Mk2 version EQ lowered 80-100 KHz to reduce). Offset wanders a bit from mike motion. #07 band stops few secs in middle w/vox mike problems. #07 brief splice tiny bit missing & some volume fluctuations. #11 few weird unexplained dullspots (mostly now raised volume).
::: CONTRAST CLAUSE: This is the Mk2 remaster with NO NR but WITH EQ in R channel (to fix weird noise). The Mk1 remaster with NO EQ or NR is available elsewhere.
::: #13 has some alternate lyrics to the studio song of the same title.
::: Some song sources : "The Killing Moon (Echo&The Bunnymen). "Indian Summer" (The Doors) . Life's A Gas (T Rex) Where Did You Run To (Going Home (1985 unissued Hope Sandoval & Sylvia Gomez duo EP track)
::: Does anyone know what became of Chuck Wax & can you put me in touch with him?

DimeTravel 549 ::: Thanks to the original taper & traders! Thanks to DIMER Hermesacat for song title assist, band line-up & his general M.Star/Hope/Opal fanatacism - much appreciated. ::: Corrections welcome ::: Amazing that we have so much of this tour - would that more appear, along with some "new" Mazzy Star archival recordings, which are certainly out there. This is a fine, rocked-out gig. Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees
