Patti Smith
June 7, 2001
Village Underground, New York City, USA

(The artwork jpegs are identical to the previous torrent, as are the FLAC files except I removed the "-FIXED" from the filenames of d1t03 and d1t10. The Fingerprint file is new, I added the .md5 checksum, and changed the info.txt file.)

If you have a recording of this show, this might be an upgrade; there's an inferior-sounding alternate source; and some copies of this superior-sounding source in circulation are the wrong speed (details below in "technical note").

SQ: Excellent, I rate it "A". Previous postings of this recording received 217 Snatches.

Artwork included; many thanks to G. The Cock for reworking the original artwork, I love it! He created two versions, one for slimline(2CD) jewelcases, and another for double-size (6CD) cases.

I removed noise d1t3@6:28.6 and d1t10@7:18
I didn't remove almost imperceptible noise d1t10@7:48 because I couldn't without making it sound worse.

*Technical note*
When I first got recordings of this 3-night (6/5/01, 6/6/01, 6/7/01) run, they were the best-sounding Patti recordings I had, but there was diginoise (some 6/5/01, lots the other nights). They pale in comparison to this alternate, superior source for the 3-night run. Actually I got 2 sets of this superior source, which was fortunate because the speeds of the 2 sets differ. One set is the correct speed (exactly matching the speed of the first, inferior-sounding recordings I got), the other set is the wrong speed, faster by:
0.13% for 6/5/01, 10.13 seconds for the show
0.02% for 6/6/01, 1.6 seconds for the show
0.04% for 6/7/01, 2.98 seconds for the show
This fast set of discs is 4th generation from originals, so who knows how many such wrong speed copies there are; incidentally, the channels (left/right) are switched on the 'fast' set.

Absolutely no selling! Please share freely. Please only convert to mp3 for your own use.
