remastering by glasnostrd19 incl.
speed adjust -30 cents, balance levels in last part of masks
and rest of show, pasted some applause in for tape flip after arrow,
retracked end applause after wondering and removed silent gap (master edit?)
before La Rossa, retracked end applause after La Rossa,
balanced levels as needed for most of show,
corrected track 10 track title, it's not A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers.
also spliced some applause after it when the recorder was shut off abruptly.
this is now pretty close to a seamless recording.
tracks 8 and 11 are incomplete, both cut before the end.
not much is missing from the last track,
but a significant chunk of when she comes is missing.
other than that, it should be hard to tell now
when the recorder was shut off to pause between songs,
flip or change tape. this was a really long show.
kudos to whoever recorded it for getting this much of it.
the source this comes from was 16/96, this one is 16/44.1.
