The Library has two audience recordings.
The first is a pretty good recording but suffers from some fluctuation in levels, a fair bit of hiss, a droput, and a destructive edit. Levels are a tad low, particularly on the left channel, at the outset but stabalize by the time Cold Irons Bound rolls around. I've mitigated, but not entirely eliminated the hiss with rather aggressive use of a Graphic Equalizer on the Library's analog Master. The dropout (closed on the Library's Masters) occurs during the first verse of Like A Rolling Stone. The destructive edit falls between Tangled Up In Blue and Stone Walls And Steel Bars, clipping the first second or two of the latter. The begining of Stone Walls And Steel Bars is compromised by a fair bit of capstan induced noise. Otherwise, complete and problem free. Thanks, Bernie! Dubbed 01/13/00. 110 min. Request 9711051.
The second is a very rough, and quite strident, incomplete recording. Maggie's Farm, I Want You, Cold Irons Bound, and the beginning of I'll Be Your Baby Tonight) are missing. A destructive edit falls between 'Til I Fell In Love With You and Highway 61 Revisited clipping the first few seconds of the latter. Thanks, Robert! Dubbed 01/13/00. 90 min. Request 9711052.
