Notes Part 1:
*The DAT clone I received shortly after this show was marked SBD > DAT. However, as the recording sounds like a matrix (SBD plus mics) I have labeled it as such. I do not know the type of microphones used in the recording, or their location in the venue. I imagine the mics were set up at the SBD and blended “on the fly” with the SBD feed before being fed into a DAT deck.
Notes Part 2:
A second generation DAT clone was used in the DAT > CD-R transfer.
The CD-R used in the FLAC transfer was burned directly from the second generation DAT.
Recorded by Brodie.
DAT > CD-R and CD-R > FLAC transfers by Paul deLima.
