Revision by Dan McDonald, Sept-Oct, 2012.
Diamond Cut Forensics 8 was used to rearrange the audio. I used the spectral filter
for equalization in several different ways.The main goal was to lower the prominence of
the bass. Most of the bass was in the right channel, so that was just a reworking of
the sonic profile for the left channel. Sometimes, the bass was in both channels.
In those instances I either left it alone or lowered it (depending on what was going on
at the time). Along the way I boosted the highs considerably in both channels. You
should be able to hear quite a bit of difference. Booting highs lead to some increases
in noise. I decided not to use any noise reduction because the drums/cymbals were so
low that their signal was about equivalent to the noise level at some points. In this
version, you will notice the noise more between songs and when the songs are relatively
quiet, but you'll also be able to hear the drums, guitars and vocals more prominently.
I don't specify all the things I did because there were too many changes.

I left the space (tape cut or tape flip in the original) as it was in the source I used.
There's enough hiss that either the lineage is wrong or the signal was recorded at very
low levels in the original.

Original information

Recording Info:
SBD -> Master Reel -> Dat -> CD
I attempted to improve the most annoying aspects of this recording
- Balanced the channels
- improved the volume fluctuations in Truckin'
- Lowered the bass slightly after about 3:44 in Truckin'
- cut out some "dead air"

Charlie Miller's Notes (shnid=94410):
-- Possibly from a Master Cassette
-- Didn't do much to this, just fixed levels and cleaned up cuts
-- This has a horrible mix but it's better than nothing
-- Tape flips in Greatest Story Ever Told and The Other One

--Set 2--
204-d1t01 - He's Gone
205-d1t02 - Greatest Story Ever Told
206-d1t03 - Bird Song
207-d1t04 - Truckin' ->
208-d1t05 - The Other One ->
209-d1t06 - Morning Dew

Tagging notes:
Show information is embedded within the header of each flac file.
It will display on any player capable of directly playing flac files.
If converted to wav during processing, all tags will be stripped,
however audio data will remain unaffected.
If you must transcode to a lossy format, do so directly Flac > Lossy.
Use st5 or ffp to validate audio integrity.
Md5 values will change if tagging is altered.

This is a blistering partial second set. All the fall '72 goodness you could hope for. The original reel source has some serious issues. Primarily, Phil so completely overshadows all the other instruments it's a difficult listen. That source has been remastered by Charlie Miller then Charlie's work remastered by rbbert. A measure of improvement with each remaster, but still far from ideal.

Now droncit has worked his magic and Oh Boy!! you are in for a real treat. The sound has improved from marginal to almost excellent. Maybe for the first time since it was performed in Nashville 40 years ago, this show will steal your face.

Was this the Dead's first gig in Nashville? I wonder if they planned on visiting the Grand Ol Opry when they were in town!

Many thanks for the work! This was my first show and what a day it was. For starters it was a free show and it seemed to go forever.

Unfortunately, they didn't visit the Opry.

Germain --

Boy, you hit the nail on the head. I especially like their fall of 72 stuff and I went to Vanderbilt, so I always listened to the older versions of this show and sighed and thought what might have been.

While I was listening to some Fall of 72 at work today (and naturally working my butt off the rest of the time . . . because the Grateful Dead just make me want to do paperwork . . . yeah right) I happened to hit this version on Archive, without even knowing that this new one had come out. Anyone watching me would have sworn I got caught by a giant fishhook the way my mouth dropped open.

I couldn't freaking believe it. Kind of like the source rehab of fantasies.

I'm lucky I don't have wireless headphones at work or I might have danced my way into getting canned on a mental.

Dan -- Beyond excellent man. It is unreal how good it turned out. Un-Freaking-Real. Amazing.
