-Digitally remastered using a custom built, Dual-DAW nicknamed Bertha, by on 10/5/2002.
-Post drums / disc 3, which is proported to be PreFM>>DAT, has a PCM gen, and at least one cassette gen.
-Post drums / disc 3 was deemphasised prior to processing due to the PCM emphasis, making it a bit more listenable, maybe even enjoyable.
-The right channel Dropout on track D3t05 has been crossfaded from the left channel making that section of the track mono. I figured mono was the lesser of two evils.

From Charlie’s original text file:
SBD -> Rm -> Dat -> CD -> Sonic Solutions -> CD
(Post Drums – Fp -> Dat -> CD)

The Post Drums Pre-FM recording is degraded and flawed. I doubt that it is a Pre-FM Master Reel recording, but then again, stranger things have happened.
The ONLY reason I included it was to circulate the complete show. As for the SBD, David Gans said that the Post-Drums segment was unusable.

  • New Repost Policy: With the near constant flux and changes being made by the main file hosting sites I no longer feel any show that I post will be around permanently. Because of this I will no longer be reposting any old show. Once it is gone, it is gone. I am terribly sorry about this, but my time is limited and I simply cannot spend all of it reposting shows.
