This minor upgrade sounds exactly like ccrider895's great torrent posted October 2007. But here both sources are known gens, and I adjusted the volume on one source.

SQ: The sound quality is excellent; I rate it closer to "A" than to "A-".

Source for the music (tracks 1 through 11):
Pre-FM>?>CDR*>EAC(secure)>Cool Edit Pro 2.1(tracking)>FLAC(level 8)
*My CDR was hand-delivered by the Seeder of the August 2003 babel-list tree on which I was a top-level ("trunk") branch.
taper unknown

Source for the interview (track 12):
FMS(KFPA 94.1 broadcast)>Yamaha T-550 tuner>HHB-800 standalone burner>CDR>EAC(Secure)>Cool Edit Pro 2.1(Normalized to 50%[from 67.5%])>FLAC(level 8)
It was louder than the concert, so I lowered the volume.

12 interview (on KPFA by Scoop Nisker)

I planned to simply repost ccrider895's great torrent. But I encountered surprises. I had assumed incorrectly that the source treed in 2003 was an AUD, but analysis proved that it was *identical* to ccrider895's pre-FM version. So I looked up the details of my CDR, and found I got it directly from the Seeder of the Tree that placed the concert into circulation. Then I noticed that the t12 interview was a different source; it turns out I forgot that the Seeder had treed *my* recording of the post-show interview; so instead of using the interview track I got from the tree, I used my master of it.
