Total Time ::: 1:11:25
::: EXCELLENT quality stereo AUD, crisp & right up front. Check samples for evasion or elation evaluation.
::: Warts: VERY few. Repaired dullspots & dropouts but surely missed a few. #1 starts ~5 seconds late. #13 has cut/splice in middle (tapeflip?). #16 had 1/2 second glitch about 30 secs in (now spliced).
::: Smokin' show! Add some bass & turn this sucker UP! One o' the finest quality early REM shows around.
::: Only been in somewhat limited circulation & this should upgrade what is around.
::: NOT the same as the Charlotte 1982-01-23 Viceroy Park show.

DimeTravel 299 ::: MANY, many thanks to the original taper & trader, DIMER tomcannon! Also, thanks to DIMER gv0000 - the info man. ::: Corrections welcome ::: I've had this & the 1982 Viceroy show from the taper for some decades, but at his request I never traded them, since there was quite reasonable concern about bootlegs appearing back in the day. With his good wishes, they are now being passed out into the world, DIME first. I'd already bailed on the Queen City by the time this great sh*t went down. The taper must have had the sweet spot for this one. Much less AUD motion interference than his '82 recording - stellar sound. A rippin' good listen - have fun! Listen, enjoy, show appreciation, share, give, spread peace. Yrs truly, Knees
