Van der Graaf Generator
9 February 1972
Piper Club, Roma, Italy
T-fix, speed corrected by Pelino (2021)
1. Darkness (11/11)
5. After The Flood
6. Theme One
Not a great recording, but at least listenable, even more after the speed correction. Probably missing the first song, and all the intermissions between songs, as the taper probably was saving tape...
I received this in a trade from Vapp who got his copy from the taper. It was then sent to 'T' for remastering. His notes are below:

I was asked to fix some problems with this recording. The source CDR was recorded at a low volume and in particular the right channel was much lower than the left. The original tape was paused between songs leaving very little appaluse between songs and in some cases restarted late and missed a very small amount of the next song. Also using the pause caused a stretching distortion sound between songs.
I boosted the overall volume and balanced the left and right channels. I removed the pause distortion and closed the gap. I also removed a few clicks. All the work I did on this show was done in the digital domain.
