JMZ93's Notes:

1. You will notice some odd distortion of the lower frequencies in this recording. Since nothing was pegging 0dB in the raw recording I received from klingklang, I can safely say that the effect is not digital clipping, at least at the recorder. It might have been the low frequencies overwhelming the microphone used, or it might have been present in the house PA. Can someone else who was at this show confirm or deny that it was in the PA?

2. I kept "Purple Lagoon" and "Magic Fingers" together, since "Purple Lagoon" was so short on it's own.

3. This recording sounded bass-heavy and distant. Compressing the bass and EQing the highs helped some. A little manipulation of the stereo image added some width.
