Notes:
The original version provided by dadgad had some clicks (most of them
at or near the track transitions). I contacted him about this issue
and he confirmed it to me. He also gave me the ok to torrent my fixed
version.
Here is what I did:
- Moving a small bit (0:01.64) at the end of track 9 (disc 1) to the
  beginning of track 1 (disc 2) to match the fade out/in between both
  discs. This was done by splitting up the original track 9 at
  27:45.63 via cue sheet (in order to avoid SBEs).
- Fixing sector boundary error in track 2 of disc 2 (zero padding
  with 229 samples at the end of track).
- Zero padding at the beginning and end of discs (1 s = 75 blocks =
  44'100 samples). This will allow a safe burn to CD-R without
  discarding some of the samples even if the write offset of the used
  program is not correct.
- Fixing small clicks:
  disc 1, track 1 at 0:13
  disc 1, track 3 at 0:01 and 6:01
  disc 1, track 4 at 0:00
  disc 1, track 5 at 0:00, 0:03 and 5:55
  disc 1, track 8 at 0:00
  disc 2, track 2 at 0:00 and 0:03
- Renaming tracks according etree naming convention.
All the editing work has been done with EAC's integrated wave editor.
After all, I have verified that no errors were added. Nothing has
been cut out to remove the clicks. I just trimmed the samples
manually. There are other clicks and pops throught the recording, but
these are either mic handling noises or other usual tape flaws.
Needless to say that I left these untouched.
As I contacted dadgad he also pointed out that there is a repetion in
WLL. When I checked for that myself I even discovered two of them. A
big one repeating the ICQYB part almost entirely and a small one near
the end of that repetition which duplicates about one and a half
minutes once again. Here is in detail what I did to fix this:
- Removing repeated part in WLL (disc 2, track 2) after 21:48.61
- Applying small fade out and padding with 1 s of silence.
For those who want to check it themselves, I also have included the
uncut version of this track with all the repetitions.

Credits:
Many thanks to dadgad for sharing his original version.
