STEADINESS: 13 (mostly steady; some vertical hold issues during "Summer Days")

HEADS/OBSTRUCTIONS: 13 (mostly unobstructed except between songs and where audience stands or passes in front of right angle camera; date/time counter left on by taper of right-angle camera)

MD5 created by MD5summer. Transferred from DAT in May 2010.
This particular recording likely has not circulated until now. Unique marker: at end of Girl of the North Country track a man says "no smoking cigarettes".
This recording was not edited, except to cut off excess at the beginning and end, and to amplify the volume.
Track 14 "This Old Man" is just Bob singing the line from that song, "this old man came rolling home..." :-)
This is not LB-767 (because no "brief talking at beginning" of I'll Be Your Baby Tonight)
bittorrent download 05/10; cdr splits not specified; in 4-way comparison these are different recordings based on different crowd at end of d1t2; this is the most natural fullest sounding; cedar 4 LB-0767 was more echoey and bassy; LB-0785 was more suppressed; cedar 2 LB-1376 was very similar in sound; excellent sound [A]
