: Disc 1 is tracked to be 80 minutes

: First couple notes of CR&S cut

: tape flip in Samson @ 2:35

: tape flip in Saint of Circumstance @ 5:49

: Sugar Mag and Don't Ease Me In come from a different cassette than the rest of set 2; this tape has the same known lineage but a bit more clarity and a bit less bottom (Source 2 above)

: 10db Noise Reduction applied in Cool Edit 2000 to reduce tape hiss. While a tiny bit of hiss remains, and the editing gives some dead air a bit of a strange sound on the recording, this IMO far improves *significant* hiss previously present from multiple cassette gens, and brings out the music a good deal more.

: The '81 European Gift story: Several years ago, a friend of mine had a job at a very large airplane manufacturer near Seattle. One day, someone he'd never spoken with walked up to him in the plant and handed him a briefcase, saying only he'd heard my friend was a deadhead. What he found inside was SBDs of nearly the entire Fall '81 European Tour (the only shows missing were 10/11/81 and 10/15/81 at the Melkweg). I was recruited to dub the tapes for him, and made a set for myself. Many of these shows are now in circulation with better gens, but this is one of several that don't circulate either at all or as SBDs as of the time of this seeding. Enjoy, and let's see if the masters surface!
