CD Wave (Re-Tracked & removed gaps) > TLH > FLAC

Changes made (Nero 7):
Reduced RH channel to 70%
Cross faded L&R channels (80:20 ratio) to fix headphone unfriendly mix
Fixed glitch 8.22 in Honky Tonk
Fixed glitches 3.37 3.52 & 4.30 in Sanctuary
Fixed glitch at 0.41 in It's about that time
Combined the split Honky Tonk tracks (inc. short Funky Tonk fragment)
Fixed the Fade out / in between Sanctuary & It's about that time
Now it is a continuous set that fits on a CDR-90

Quality: I'd give it an A+ now (briggY?)

I downloaded a recent inferior version of this (id# 119734, now banned)
foolishly without reading the comments about twat's excellent older fixed version,
which I subsequently also grabbed.

Recording clarity is superb, with very low noise, so the original recorder
did a fantastic job, but it still needed the final touches (details above) to
make it a 'must have' recording.

Compared to other recent 1971 posts (Dietikon 1 & 2), this is has lower noise and
a much better mix as the 3 percussionists are spread across the stereo image (and
better recorded), as opposed to being stuck hard R or L-channel, so a much better
listen to my ears.

I would classify it as similar to the quality of the official Black Beauty CDs,
a slightly edgy sound, but terrific powerful performance, definitely towards the
electric side (my distinct preference as Keith plays a lot more organ) rather than
jazz side of this group's recordings, so...

...Hope you enjoy this as much as I do now !!
