LB notes for LB-4742:
LB-4742, (67min+27min), version "a"; AUD DAT Master [unknown equipment] > DAT clone(s) > WAV > Soundforge 6.0 > CD Wave > CD > EAC > WAV > FLAC, I did not harm the sound of the recording in any way, This is the not same recording as LB-1316. d101 and d1t02 of this set come from yet another master, and were already tacked onto my original DAT which started out at 44.1 kHz and changed to 48 kHz after d1t02, This is a new crossfaded version I did using a complete version of this master which I recently received; bittorrent download 04/07; some occasional scratchiness like around d2t1 5:15 which makes it harsher; excellent sound [A-]; in comparison to LB-1316 that one sounds more muffled on the quiet songs and this sounds harsh on the loud songs
a few spots of occasional distortion like around d2t1 5:15 which makes it harsher
