- Removed several digital clicks, repaired a dropout in the right hand channel.
- Tamed a couple of wild volume fluctuations.
- EQ applied.
- Removed rumble.
- Light noise reduction.
- Normalised.
- Cut into tracks.

The original torrent claimed there was little over 8kHz, which is correct, but everything from about 1kHz was very, very quiet and uneven, so I have addressed this to open up the sound a bit.

Reproduced below are the original notes (note I have cleaned up the flaws noted):

From original text file by Milesian June 2005:

"Technical Note: During the transfer from DAT to hard drive the source DAT snapped. The portion remaining after the break was then copied to hard drive and 1:58 from the Miles Trees source was spliced in to complete the recording. Channels were swapped and pitch adjusted on the Miles Trees portion to minimize differences in acoustic character."

- d1t02: ~5:39 rch pinned / lch some minor high freq noise, ~9:48 rch pinned / lch some minor high freq noise

- d1t05: from ~9:12 thru ~9:41 ~ 16khz carrier appears (not audible)

- d1t07 ~ 0:02 rch pnned / lch some minor high freq noise

- d1t08: ~0:14 two closely spaced discontinuites (maybe a few samples are missing); ~2:08 rch pinned for .2 seconds, lch some high freq noise; ~5:51 brief rch pop/glitch; 9:52 thru ~ 11:53 "hiss" level rises

General comments about source quality:

- source audio signal insigificant above 8kHz,

- hiss level unobtrusive compared to LMPP215

- Poster billed band as "Miles Davis Quintet" though 6 musicians performed

- "Credit to Peter Losin, http://www.plosin.com/" for lineup information

- QC done by mfv
