Band: KansasTour: Vinyl Confessions TourPlace: Norman, OK, USA.Date: July 24, 1982==> Excellent Soundboard <==First off: thanks to Lamplight and Ragsrobby for the original upload! This is a wonderful quality soundboard show, a real gem! It surfaced for the first time about 2 years ago. Upon listening I thought the sound had a lot of potential if only it would be tweaked a little. So I used Cool Edit Pro 2.1 to expand the stereo field and equalize and normalize the levels. To my ears it's a drastic improvement. But I'll let you be the judge of that. For those having the original, let me know what you think of it. FLAC Frontend was used for decoding and encoding (level 8) the files.-kerrylivesHere are Lamplight's original comments:Uncirculated SoundboardAs I promised, an un-circulated KANSAS show from 1982's VINYL CONFESSIONStour! This show is HOT - HOT - HOT! Fantastic quality and performance! This show was given to my friend and me by someone close to the band. It was on a cassette (notsure what brand, but a good MAXELL or TDK-something like that) It was recordedright from the soundboard on July 24, 1982 in Norman, Oklahoma. The only thing thatis disappointing is that the last song of the encores is cut off.. (The end of "Down The Road"and the "Mangum Opus" segment.) I looked through my cdr collection for a version toadd as a bonus so you would have it, but the only version I have transfered is the versionfrom Omaha, Nebraska which has been released on the SONY video, so it is off limitshere. (I tried!)My friend (ragsrobby - a new DIME member) took the tape and did the cd mastering with SOUNDFORGE onto 2 cds. (A very nice sounding tape to begin with, and he did a great job of mastering it!) I used SOUNDFORGE to rip it and title the tracks, FLACfrontend 8 to encode and2 cups of great coffee to pass the time while converting... This is a great show! We hopeyou enjoy it!!
