Downloaded this one in Yeeshkul tracker, then re-worked a little bit on Sound Forge 8.0 (crossfading the cuts, increasing
overall volume and balancing channel). This version is now 44.1 khz. Then I tracked it using CD Wave Editor and flac'ed
for your benefit.
This sounds extraordinary good given that it's from 1974 and although this is a quite common show, this new source seems
better than circulating ROIO's.

Below the original notes.

Probably one of my favorite all time dates. I don't know why exactly but I just really like

This runs at a little slower (more correct) speed than the common RoIO around for this date
just called "British Winter Tour" (LP + cass[master or low]>cdr(?)>flac). This RoIO combines
the LP for the 1st set called ""Brittish Winter Tour '74" plus a master or low gen tape for
the 2nd set (DSotM + Echoes). The first set of this date only circulates on LP so far, and
the version on that RoIO is not the best one.

This tape here contains the 2nd set only (DSotM + Echoes). The Great Gig fades out just like
on the common RoIO and so does Eclipse. Echoes on the common version starts out with some
minor crackling noise, here there is none of that. There is about a couple seconds more
audience at the very end of this tape. Other than that they are the same except for sound

This version sounds just a little darker than the common RoIO IMO. For this date I still like
that version the best. Still, this one is very good. There is a supposed Master for this 2nd
set which sounds worse than the common RoIO. It could have aged badly or it's not really a
Master. Either way it's not as good.

I only cut out some silence and the studio thingy that was attached at the end of this tape.
