Notes:

Low generation, maybe a 1st gen. The highs are all there. I don't know what was done in the transfer process but there looks to have been some equalization or noise reduction done. Nevertheless this is as clean and crisp as it gets for this show. This is much better than the "Just Before The Eruption" title. From what I understand there are a couple of lesser spread titles out there called "Strike While The Iron's Hot" and "Class Dismissed." The former is on vhboots.com and the track times seemed to match up pretty much with this, so maybe this is the same thing, I don't know.

However, this came to me with 1/75 second gaps between each tracks and a handful of clicks. I spent a few hours giving this a hard listen and removing every single digital error. There should be no sector boundary errors, clicks or anything else that wasn't on the analog tape. So this will not be identical to "Strike While The Iron's Hot" because I did some editing. I don't know if that title had errors or not.

As to the show itself, this is a great show. Too bad there's a multitude of cuts. The cuts are either of the songs themselves or Dave's rapping in between the songs. The "Story of Joe" during "Fools" was also cut.
