PREVIOUS NOTES by Mike Wren:
* Thanks to Lee Farber for the original seed!
* There was some re-mastering done to clean up the original
tape hiss from this classic show. The processes I took are
1) Amplified both discs 175% across the board.
2) Sampled a section of silence to obtain a decent noise floor
sample (25,000 sample points used).
3) Applied this sample against both discs at 64 percent.
4) Applied a graphic equalizer to boost the high and low spectrums
(specifically between 600 - 800 Hz and 8k & 10 kHz).
***Note: I cut everything above 11 kHz 18dB because nothing
existed above that freq. range on the original recording.
NEW NOTES by Hunter Seamons (12/31/06):
I noticed the pitch was too high in both shows listed in this seed. I decreased the pitch in 12.01.84 by 7%, and I decreased the pitch in 10.17.85 by 9%.
As this was my first seed, I naturally made some mistakes the first time around. I made all changes by going back to the original file set by Mike Wren and redoing the process, so this is as fresh as it gets. The new changes from my previous seed are as follows:
1) SBE fix
2) Encoded at 44.1 kHz (The last source I did was accidently encoded at a "false" 48 kHz. Whether this makes any difference sonically has not been determined.)
3) Different speed reductions at 6% and 8%, respectively. (I believe I was a hair off the first time around, so I wanted to use this opportunity to make the changes.)
4) NO CUTS! (I made some unorthodox, millisecond cuts before between songs, due to my inexperience of pitch correcting at the time. These went largely unnoticed, as far as I can tell.)
These changes should make this source better for the long haul.
Enjoy this historic show on its 23rd anniversary!

|Important news from bt.etree.org!
Begining on March 17 2006, all torrents seeded at bt.etree must
include 1) checksum files (.md5, .ffp) that include a checksum for
every lossless audio file in the fileset, and 2) a copy of those
checksums pasted into the torrent description, so everyone can see
them without downloading the fileset.
If you seed a torrent without this information, it will be deleted.
We're telling you this now, so you'll know.
Of course, if there is a problem, we'll try to contact you and help
to fix it. If you don't have a valid e-mail address on your
db.etree.org account, please take a moment to add one. If we can't
contact you, we can't help you, and it be very frustrating for
everyone. Seeders who don't have valid e-mail addresses may find
their logins disabled.
This message will appear on all torrents seeded to bt.etree until
everyone has gotten the message. If your torrent has checksum files
and lists them in the description, thank you! If not, please take a
moment to edit the torrent description to include them. If you have
to add the checksum files from scratch, you'll have to pull this
torrent and start over. Sorry about that.
For help generating checksums, please visit
http://forums.etree.org/viewtopic.php?t=7025. If you have specific
questions, please post them at http://forums.etree.org and someone
will help you ASAP. Please do NOT e-mail us directly.
Thanks, and happy downloading.
|Don't miss the first Gamehendge at Nectar's either:
I did some minor remastering to that source as well, so it needs to be added to the database as a new source.
|Does anyone have 9/13/88 from Sam's Tavern they could upload? Have a nice weekend all!
|awesome!! thanks a lot!!!!
|<3 u rawk ^_^
|Guess what!: December 1, 1984 was a Saturday - so this is GREAT anniversary time.
|It always kind of annoyed me that this gig is always labeled as a Nectars gig - when it was really upstairs at Nectars - which I'm pretty sure is called Club Metronome (not sure if it was in 1984 tho.)
Just rambling - thanks for the remastered source!
|This is an aud.
|^^Yeah, the original text file I copied from said "SBD." Was not sure myself.
|thanks for your work! has there been any remasterring done on this 10/17/85, or is it the same files as the Mike Wren "Release to commemorate the one year anniversary of etree.org" ?
|Thanks for putting this up on schedule. It was cool to see it on this date as expected. Finally brings me full circle! Waiting outside the Greek theater in Berkeley in the pre-dawn of 6-16-85, some other taper gives me this cassette. I had been listening to the previous night's SWEET Lost Sailor (ironic, huh?) He said "Here check this out, these guys are gonna be the next Dead". I looked at the song list, got as far as the third tune, and handed it back to the guy. Politely I said, "thanks a lot, but that's ok, I already work with the best Dead cover band on the planet: Living Earth". (hee hee) Threw a tape of theirs (recorded in '84 with my trademark 3-mic onstage mix) into my d-5, passed the headphones over, and watched his jaw drop. Got into explaining that recording, and never did get to hear that Nectar's gig! So once again, thanks. Think I'll record this one on a cassette and haul out the d-5 so I can do this thing right!
|> The First Circulated Phish Show
i downloaded "11/3/84" a few years ago. does anyone know if that show is legitimate?
|^^Another detail of the original text that MIGHT be wrong. There was an explanation of this before, but I forgot. The basic answer may be: It is a later source, but circulated before the 11.03.84 show - or perhaps the first seeded in '99 when etree started doin' its thing.
|This just got a major surge of leechers, and I don't know why. Any theories? Hope y'all enjoy it.
|11/3/84 is legitimate, but 12/1/84 was the first circulated show, even back in '85, as an above comment tells. Other pre-85 shows got uncovered only in the last few years.
[The legendary ROTC show is 12/2/83, from which Scarlet>Fire was broadcast during the 8/13/04 Coventry Archives Show.]
This is a super nice upgrade, especially to someone who first got a 10th gen copy edited down to 45 minutes way back in the day.
This may have gotten a surge of leechers because of people like me spreading the word about the goodies at bt.etree :)
|taperwayne--Club Metronome didn't open as such until the early 90s, I think. In the 80s, I believe the venue was called Nectar's Upstairs or something... accounts vary.
