Three patches (in Firebird, CTTE, and Awaken) to cover
extreme local crowd noise were taken from a fellow
taper's recording (CSB>batt box>D8(44.1))

Processing included convert to 32 b.f. format, fades,
notch filter at about 60 Hz to eliminate PA hum, EQ,
Waves L2 with dither to 16 bits. Some crowd noise
before YIND was also deleted. There are a few brief
instances of static from the stage.

I was seated in in the front row of the second
section (26th row), dead center. There was an aisle
in front of me, and the movement of persons through the
aisle can very occasionally be detected as a brief,
minor phasing variance, especially with headphones.
The taper who supplied the patches was seated 6 rows
in front of me, also dead center.
