Notes by the taper
Since the original recording was made with Dolby B on, which adds 10dB boost to the high frequencies, yet the playback was done without Dolby B on (which would have cut the high frequencies by 10dB) I took the liberty of applying some very slight noise (hiss) reduction using BIAS Sound Soap. If anyone wants the recording without this processing please contact me and I'd be happy to oblige. I usually am against offering original recordings with any processing but I was very light-handed here. I also recorded Ry Cooder at the Cabaret on August 5, 1984. About half the songs they did were the same. That has been and someday again may be a (separate) torrent TRT just under 90 minutes. The venue for this show was The Cotati Cabaret in Cotati, CA. It was a small club that held about 300 people. Cotati is a small town located about an hour north of San Francisco.
