This and the concert the following night at the Amphitheater at Beit Shean ,have ( as far as I know ) never made it out of Israel , as I cannot find any evidence of them being anywhere on the net rot any tradelists I have found.They were unknown to several major Oregon aficionados that I ran them past
. Its of course possible that someone has traded them and they have been kept in house, but now I am releasing them and I hope you enjoy them as I much as did when i was listening to them whilst cleaning them up.
This was by far the best of the two shows , there are some announcer interruptions and occasionally some minor amplifier hum from onstage during the quiet bits. Unfortunately the tape ran out before the end of the show
but the first part tape flip doesn't seem to have cut out any music.
FM broadcast > unknown recording deck> TDK SA 90 tape > digitised 2014 > wav file > Flac> Adobe Audition> clean up minor FM noise, clicks, minor eq ,audition mastering tools > remove announcers interruptions > XACT SBE( LEVEL 8 ) you …..
Hand in hand
