Gaumont Theatre

http://torrent.genesis-movement.org/torrents-details.php?id=1686

Changes Made (Nero 7):
Noise Print NR, removed most of the noise, but some remains on the right channel
Cross-mixed all tracks (87:13)
Slight treble lift to match original
Cut the silence between 05>6 & 02-3
Cross-faded several tracks to smooth transitions
Fixed glitches at 5.27 (r06), 0.50 (r07), 2.44 (r02), 1.30 (05)
Left channel reduction by 3% (disk1) 5-10% (disk 2) to centre stereo image
Fixed left channel offset in the first 2min of 01
Fixed volume level shifts on several tracks, 2sec - 2min.

Transfer: shn > mkw > Nero > Flac Fontend (level 6)

Quality: A++

The original - posted specifically to encourage remastering - is great sounding but very
raw, with significant noise and hum, plus (as mentioned in the original comments) some
phasing which makes the instruments / singing indistinct.

As I started to edit, it was obvious that the noise print is representative of FM with
the multiplex filter at 19-20khz clearly visible, so with Phil's comments during the
show about broadcasting live to hospitals, I can only assume that the noise is due to
the FM distribution of the concert, with very little contributed by the SBD.

Details of the work I did are above, the key resulting improvements being...
- Significantly less noise / hum, although a little remains just on the RH channel
- Instrument dynamics are clearer / punchier
- Phil's voice / diction is clearer
- Steve's playing (low in the mix at times) can now be heard

Overall, I would rate this significantly higher than other (Genesis-Movement) A+ rated
1977 shows such as Sao Paulo and Zurich Revisited...

...Hope you enjoy it too !!
