Remastering notes (from MOB):

The rough recording was already very good, but needed some restoration and cleaning before
being spread worldwide. Indeed, due to the age of the mastertape, a lot of crackles,
tape warble and level fluctuations were present on the rough digital transfer.
These have been manually cleaned as much as possible. Also, the rough version had
a lot of clipping that needed to be corrected. Some frequencies with musical content
were buried in the original transfer, therefore a slight EQ was applied in order
to bring clarity to the recording. There were some abrupt cuts on the mastertape
(two cuts during Breathe, one cut at the beginning of Us And Them and one cut
in the middle of OOTD, not to mention numerous "pause" operations by the taper
during some tunings and applause between songs).
These have been restored by editing, so that the recording is now presented
in a continuous way, with smooth transitions.
