Remember even if you have some of the Daves films already that at best your copies
will be 2 generations poorer than anything in the Masters series, so get em all.
These will be with original sound though many will feature as sound upgrades eventually with my two mates Yassou and Madhasse helping out

Remastered by Improved Air Remaster, 12-22-02
same recording as version "a" LB-0764 based on same clapping at end of d1t9; this is sound processed and fuller spectrum; excellent sound

(a bittorrent from 10/10 is a close eac match on d1t1 with same digital flaws; described as "Improved Air Remaster" with filenames like "CD1\01 Don't Let Your Deal Go Down.shn"; xref-00620)

(a bittorrent from 01/11 of flac files includes matching shn md5s to xref-00620; described as "Improved Air Remasters 046, Improved Air Catalog Number: IA46, TITLE: untitled (2cd)" with filenames like "01 Don't Let Your Deal Go Down.flac"; xref-00695)

Related comment on LB-4526: bittorrent download 02/07 same recording as version "a" LB-0764 and IAR LB-1597 based on same clapping at end of d1t9; this is full spectrum where version "a" LB-0764 is not; in comparison to IAR LB-1597 that one seems to have a narrow band at 15k reduced and otherwise the high end increased a little; in comparison to LB-0763 that one is warmer but not as bright on vocals; (did not listen to all of this)
