Soundforge Enhance tool on +3

The announcement was bookeneded by some gaps, which I removed and tidied.
Some volume reprofiling throughout.
Gap in Changes at 2:25-26 - Let's Dance repair from earlier reprise.
Abrupt join between Cracked Actor and Rock'n'Roll With Me is on the source tape.
Tape flip between Rock'n'Roll With Me and Watch That Man, also shows signs of old join.  Fade-out/in to tidy.
Blip in Watch That Man @ 2:07 (checked three versions, all the same) - fade-out/in to tidy.
Set break between Watch That Man and Spade Oddity.  Faded out fully.
Noise blip (not 100% sure it's anything to do with the concert) @ 4 seconds in Time.  Removed - loss of a beat.

COMPOSITE

Blackout - Mike J (still a little muffled, but better of the two)
Sense Of Doubt-Beauty And The Beast - Arcorman

Some volume reshaping, inevitably, to get the tapes to match.
Deliberately stopped short of completely clearing the background noise, as the audience are so quiet!
Tape flip between Alabama Song and Station To Station - seamless.
Noise from tape pause removed from crowd noise before TVC 15.
