LB Notes* for LB-1895
Holy Grail; good to very good sound; background talking d2t2; has a lot of clipping on d1t2 adding to already harshness mic noise d2t3 8:20 (not in music); drop/cut between cdrs; drop d1t4 5:00

*Please note that the author of this DVD does not totally agree with the LB assessment. The sound is very good/excellent (B+/A-), no clipping was noticed on d1t2, and the sound was not particularly harsh, although there is an audience element in the background. LB-3110 is a bit more mellow, but could not be readily synced to the video because it runs a bit faster than the video soundtrack, perhaps because it was sped up in the audio mastering process.
