Can - 1973-08-25 - Edinburgh, UK (SBD/FLAC)

(Soundboard FLAC)

Empire Theatre

Lineage:
Cassette received by 'wreka' (thanks!) in 1976, believed to be early generation SBD or AUD copy from the recordings made at most live performances by Holger Czukay. 

Transfer: 
CD > EAC > Nero > EAC > Flac Frontend (level 6)

Changes Made (Nero 7):
Cross-mixed tracks (87:13), bass and drums more dynamic / clear & balance improved Reduced Right channel by 5% to centre stereo balance
Appled Nero noise print NR
Fixed glitches at 1.01, 6.36-38 (tr01) 0.59, 3.10-13, 7.34, 10.33 (tr02) 6.38 (tr03) 2.30 (tr05) - plus multiple small volume drops throughout
Applied +3dB high frequency EQ
Fixed multiple volume / balance swings in tr 01, tr02, tr04 & tr05
Raised volume levels of tr04 & 5 by +6dB
Deleted silences between tracks & unrelated volume bursts before abrupt applause ends
Matched applause levels / eq & crossfaded tracks for reasonably smooth transitions
- wreka, only a very few seconds of crowd noise have been lost

Quality: Must be worth an A+ for the performance and the vintage
