Volume boost to the intro and start of Hang On To Yourself to bring it in line.
Little bit of hiss around start of Waiting For The Man - impossible to remove.
Tape flip between This Boy and Width Of A Circle - removed cleanly.
Lot of volume fluctuations on side two.  Tidied up.
Gap removed between Waiting For The Man and White Light/White Heat, but abrupt start to latter
Fade out/in between White Light/White Heat and Suffragette City on source tape.

No sign of Scary Monsters (if played) on the source tape and the lion's share of All The Madmen is also missing.
Cut between Chant Of The Ever Circling Skeletal Family and 87 & Cry.  Minimal loss of music, and used as the opportunity to split discs.

Cut at 3:30 in Young Americans.  Some music lost, fade-out/in
Tape split during Let's Dance - seamless, but required slight speed adjustment before the split.
End of Let's Dance, dancer intros.  Needed some editing, as taper was speaking into the mic to do level tests.
Interruptions continue into start of Fame, part of which had to be removed.

Sound quality deteriorates for the encores (distorted, static interferenced) on source tape

Break during Rock'n'Roll Suicide @ 2:47.  Fade-out/fade-in, but left rather than repaired.

Sundry fades for joins.
Sector boundary errors resolved using TLH.


Although it could fit a 90-minute disc, deliberately kept as two discs to reflect the original format
