** from a different copy of the main recording (MC>?>C):
Disc 2:
Tracks 01 through 10
note: There is intermittent static clicking running from
the end of "Henry" through "Fair Chance To Know." This
clicking is present on two known cassette copies of the
NRPS set, and does not stem from the digital processing
of this version.
Disc 4:
track 05 (Lovelight) from 4:36 through the end of show

Known flaws:

d1t03 06:31 - static
d1t04 00:15 - static
d1t14 00:48 - tape drop out
07:17 - tape drop out
d2t01 02:29 - tape drop out
d2t06 03:08 - tape drop out
03:17 - tape drop out
d3t03 01:36 - reel thud - level normalized
d3t04 00:47-->00:48 - intermittent static
01:09-->01:18 - intermittent static
02:31 - reel thud - level normalized
09:51 - reel thud - level normalized
d3t12 02:54 - static
03:59 - tape warble
d4t04 06:59-->07:02 - tape warble

note: Soundforge was used for normalization and pitch
correction. The 7" reel contained many glitches associated
with an old tape. Most were removed, or subdued. There
are, no doubt, occasional reel flaws that have gone unnoted.
Some digital errors remain as it proved unrealistic to
re-transfer the reel due to circumstances including the
physical condition of the tape itself.
