|Description||this is a flac encoded 7 tagged version of shnid: 7720|
Alpine Valley Music Theatre
East Troy, WI
Lineage: SBD > PCM > ? > D > Serafin Station
Apparently at some point in this show's lineage, it was encoded on
cassette with Dolby B NR, but subsequent dubs did not decode the
Dolby B...the editing software took care of putting the proper
EQ curve back into the show
Any/all editing, fades, NR, hiss elimination, phase
shifting/"time smear" correction, jitter elimination, and +/-2 dB max.
EQ were performed using 100% digital-only processing
(24-bit/96 kHz data stream) at Serafin Station Studio B

Jay's Personal Comments:
This is a good show. Not the best I've ever worked with, but decent quality,
good mix, etc.
There are a few SBD technical flaws that originated at the venue, mainly
heard at the ending of "Space" and into the beginning of "Morning Dew".
It sounds almost like diginoise trying to "start", but it's actually a
PCM master recording fault when the show was initially put onto PCM at
the venue. It's not overload distortion, as it's mainly on the right
channel (90% of it), and since the master I received had equal volume
on both channels during this time period mentioned, it was most likely
due to a flaw in the video tape that was used to record the PCM audio on,
or in the output of the mixer going to the PCM deck. Otherwise, it's a
pretty good show.
This tape's lineage possibly included an analog cassette generation, as
some of the songs were "cut" at the end of them, thus not leaving the
between song lulls in the dub made. This irritates me, as it takes away
from the show's overall enjoyment, and it's just audibly annoying.
Luckily, with the professional editing and processing software I use,
I can cross-fade the two songs so that's it's not a "jump" from one song
to the next, but a gentler and more gradual transition. The only
exception to this was at the end of Morning Dew, where there was a tape
flip, and the very last few seconds were cut off, and the first 10 seconds
of One More Saturday Night were also missing. Again, a 5 second crossfade
between the two songs is much easier on the ears and such than a "jump"
from the one song to the other.
The show is slightly lacking on the Phil side, as he seems to be slightly
more absent from the mix than usual. I could have brought him up more, but
I limit the amount of EQ to a maximum of 2 dB, so the "Phil Zone" from
about 625 Hz downward WAS brought up by 2 dB, thus leaving the music quality
as natural as can be from this copy I received.
The Dead always did good shows in the Chicagoland area, and this one was no
exception. The energy level is upbeat, the shows opening 3 songs are from
their "not the usual opening songs" group (the show begins with
"The Music Never Stopped -> Sugagee -> Music Reprise". Quite a nice diversion,
and enjoyable as well.
Overall, not the best quality show as far as being "very natural sounding", but
I attribute that to it's unknown lineage. But it's as good as it's going to get,
and the sound is good. Not spetacular, but good. This is why it was given an AR-3
audio rating rather than an AR-2. Almost every trace of analog hiss has been
digitally removed without affecting the music quality, both in the loud and soft
passages. I personally enjoyed this show more for the out of the ordinary opening
songs than the overall quality of the show audio itself. But, it's a clean copy
(or it is NOW once I was finished working on it), and it may
be a choice for you to consider.
Patrick's Personal Comments:
This was the very first Dead bootleg I ever got - from a close friend at my bachelor
party. Check out this show if only for the great beginning (the transition from Music
to Sugaree is sooo smooooth), the best Althea ever, and the terrific Space->Wheel->
Playing->Morning Dew climax.
Flac encoding notes:
All processing with Trader's Little Helper
Shn - st5 generated
Shn > Flac ( level 8 )
Flac - st5 generated and matched to Shn st5
Show information is embedded within the headerof 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 to validate audio integrity.
Md5 values will change if tagging is altered.
