Source A:
DAT --- Soundman OKMIIR "Studio" > Sony TCD-D7
Location
: Front of Stack
Taper: FBZ
Gen: DAT-1 from Master + CD-1 from re-Master
MP3 Sample: Right click & save (re-mastered version)

Notes - Galen: I found it rather difficult to attempt to explain this source in regards to audio clarity. On one hand, the recording sounds rather bass-heavy with the instruments all at ďone levelĒ sort of like a standard Front of Stack recording. On the other hand this source captures a lot of the nuances that are lacking in many recordings. There is a weird noise sensation, it sounds like something rattling Ė take a good long, hard listen to Stinkfist about ĺ of the way through to hear what Iím talking about. Itís difficult to explain but I believe that the paradigm you are in when you listen to this source will determine your perception of the audio. Personally, I find this to be an absolute delight to listen to as I have at least 3x since I received the DAT-1 from the taper. The taper sent Ryan A. a copy of his recording to EQ/mix prior to release so watch out for that. At this point, I am unable to put MP3 samples up online from DATís so you will have to just take my word for it until the EQ version is released. All in all, a very nice recording of a particularly strong performance by Lee-A-Popa + The Flaming Watusis.
Notes - Galen: It should be noted that there is a re-mastered version of this source available. It was EQ'd by Ryan A. (potsymonkey). A un-EQ'd file was given to Ryan A. by the taper. There are significant differences between the audio of the original & the re-mastered version. Taking a guess, I think most people will only hear the Ryan A. version as many of the subtleties/nuances of many of the songs were somewhat buried before. Nice job to both parties.
