vanillag NOTES:
–This one’s for Mikey!!: Michael Houser sadly passed on this afternoon at his home in Athens, GA from complications related to pancreatic cancer – the whole night is inspired by & dedicated to him w/ shoutouts & references throughout.
–the sound on this show, while nice & clear, was a little strange with the stereo imaging in that Jerry’s vox & guitar were mostly panned to the right & the drums mostly panned to the left (bass up the middle)…it’s a little off-putting/distracting to listen to the show this way (IMO) so I mixed the channels together to make things more balanced–this makes the proceedings in glorious mono, of course, but since the stereo imaging here was so bizarre, I felt the sacrifice was worth it to bring the sound more in balance & make it an improved listening experience (again, IMO)
–there wasn’t much bass nearly at all in this thing when I started…there is now–hahaha!!
–combed thru & removed many little clicks in this show that I discovered (both loud & soft ones)
–smoothed out a huge volume change ‘jump’ in the recording at the beginning of the show where the recording volume was suddenly jacked down (about a 7db difference!!)
–was able to cleanly remove 3 bad bits of feedback in Set 1; removed an additional 21 bad bits of feedback in Set 2
–put a bunch of careful, detailed love into this & feel like it came out much, much better.
–wish we could all go to that party at Farmer Brown’s in Boise the next afternoon that JJ mentions (set2t10 after tune)
