Light hiss removal using iZotope RX2 denoiser tool.
Running too fast, speed correction with factor of 98%.

Tape flip between Life On Mars? and Sorrow - seamless.
First four bars of China Girl appear to be missing (though very well disguised) on source tape, left alone.
Break between Scary Monsters and Rebel Rebel.  Fade-out/in, but both very slightly clipped.

Tape flip between Young Americans and Hang On To Yourself - seamless.
Damage to left channel on TVC 15 @ 3:20 - repaired from right channel.
Two gaps in the encore break between TVC 15 and The Jean Genie removed - crowd noise only.
Small gap at the start of Modern Love - which takes out first two bars of the intro.
The tail end of Modern Love is quite scruffy, with dull sound and then some tape crumple - all on source tape.

Notes

Tiny bit fast.  Speed corrected with factor of 98%.

Tape flip between Loving The Alien and China Girl.  Bit close, trims the fade on Peter's guitar on the former.  Fade-out/in.
Cut from crowd noise at end of Fashion to start of Scary Monsters - clips the start of Scary Monsters.  Fade-out/in.
Tape flip between Chant Of The Ever Circling Skeletal Family and 87 & Cry - seamless.
Gap between Beat Of Your Drum and Sons Of The Silent Age (crowd noise).  Fade-out/in to join.
Gap removed between Dancing With The Big Boys and Zeroes.  Crowd noise only.
Tape flip between Zeroes and Let's Dance, which is at quite a scruffy bit on the tape as well.  Joined successfully, crowd noise a little messy.
Gap between Let's Dance and Fame - joined, tight to start of intro to Fame.

* Arcorman sent this through, stated to be and labelled as his master tape.  As 100PCB pointed out during the transfer, however, there were joins in the tape that suggested that this was not literally the case.
I'm assuming that, like recordings I did at the time, Arcorman had "working tapes" that he reused to make raw recordings, then would do a first gen transfer to tidy up and use as his "master".
So while it's the closest to the master that will exist, it's probably more accurately termed first gen.
