Digitally Remastered by firstname.lastname@example.org. Completed 3/3/2006.
The original source has a large amount of audio level compression applied. I searched for a source without compression but was unable to find one. I checked 5 different sources, including one on DAT that was obtained 14 years ago and it had the same compression signature. This means the audio level compression was applied a long time ago and all subsequent copies have been derived from that source.
The audio level compression was corrected to the extent possible.
There is an irritating 6khz noise that exists throughout the original source. This was removed on the Bertha Remaster making for a much more enjoyable listening experience.
The complete PreFM was used for the Bertha Remaster, which means the same defects, that exist in Me and My Uncle and Big Rivevr, remain.
Audio extraction through .flac compression performed by Gary Field 03/21/2006.
From the original text file, prior to Bertha Remastering:
* - w/ Hamza El Din
This show was a live nation-wide FM broadcast.
Known Flaws - There's random problems in the right channel during Me & My Uncle > Big River.
This flaw supposedly appears on the master reel.
