Special thanks to "The Face" and friends who taped the show in '78(~);-}

Note:  The mics were hidden behind a cotton headpiece for most of the show.  Levels may be muffled in certain
places, and are not an artifact of the transfer.  This is a real gem with the

Tech Notes

SHNs\FLACs were decoded to wave and Audition 3.0 was used to reassemble the tracks back to 1 long wave.  Audition 3.0 was used to align & synch the SBD & AUD sources.  Audition 3.0 used to adjust the volume for AUDs, matrix/CTR and LFE channels.  Surcode DVD Pro DTS was used to encode to DTS.

Audio Patches:

1) Before Ollin Arrageed, 23 minute and 52.960 seconds were missing from the audience source and was filled in with audio from the soundboard source. This portion of the audio was normalized to blend in better.

2) Between Friend of the Devil and Mama Tried, 13.538 seconds were missing from the audience source and was filled in with audio from the soundboard source. This portion of the audio was normalized to blend in better.

3) Both Mama Tried and Big River were from another audience source but included as part of shnid 4160. There is a distinctly different sound than the FOB source.

4) Between Big River and Loser, 14.219 seconds were missing from the audience source and was filled in with audio from the soundboard source. This portion of the audio was normalized to blend in better.

5) Also between Big River and Loser, 47.212 seconds were missing from the soundboard source and was filled in with audio from the audience source. This portion of the audio was normalized to blend in better.

6) Between Loser and Stagger Lee, 1 minute and 26.015 seconds were missing from the soundboard source and was filled in with audio from the audience source. This portion of the audio was normalized to blend in better. This ended disk 1.

7) Jack Straw was from another audience source but included as part of shnid 4160. There is a distinctly different sound than the FOB source. As the sbd had almost no vocals, I did the best I could to mix them in with the not quite as good audience.

8) Between Jack Straw and Ship Of Fools, 21.620 seconds were missing from the audience source and was filled in with audio from the soundboard source. This portion of the audio was normalized to blend in better.

9) At the beginning of Space, 12.552 seconds were missing from the audience source and was filled in with audio from the soundboard source. This portion of the audio was normalized to blend in better.

Set 1 of the Audience ran about 2% fast compared to the Soundboard (2 seconds fast per minute). Set 2 was much closer at 0.3%.

More On DTS

Today's audio standards are moving towards multi-channel
sound, like DTS and Dolby Digital. While the Audio-CD
standard (Red Book) hasn't changed to accommodate these
new sound formats, it is still possible to go around the
specification and to put a 5.1 surround recording on a
regular Audio-CD. To play a DTS-Audio-CD you must connect
your DVD/CD player via a digital cable (optical or coaxial)
to your DTS Dolby-Digital receiver. It is not 100% sure
that your receiver will recognize a DTS-Audio CD, so the
first time you're trying to playback a DTS-Audio-CD you
must do a test to determine if it can. Begin with the
volume very low, start the disc and raise the volume
gradually. NEVER listen to a DTS-Audio-CD through the
analog audio outputs of your CD/DVD player.

Burning Instructions

Burn them the absolute same way as you would burn any
normal Audio-CD from FLAC files.
