Warning: There is a bad connection between the PA system and the FM feed. This causes a buzzing that pops up throughout the show, accompanied by a total loss of amplitude for several seconds at a time. Nearly every song has several of these dropout episodes up until OMSN, with a few ocurrances in the 2nd set. Otherwise, the sound quality is not stellar either, and has frequent distortion and overmodulation on the portions from the primary source. The final portion of the 2nd set on disc 3 is slightly better quality, and the lineage might have one less analog generation, though this cannot be confirmed. Due to the technical problems, this entire show might only be for the completist collectors, and casual collectors might only be interested in the 2nd set.
Notes: --Sound Forge was used to normalize and correct the pitch for source 1. Normalization was applied to the final portion of the 2nd set. Other minor edits were done using Sound Forge as well. --buzzing and dropouts occur frequently up until the 2nd set; there are often several during each song --dropouts from tech problems @ 7:05 & 7:25 in O1 --dropout from tech problem @ 1:09 in JBG
