- Removed unnecessary and excessive crowd cheer.
- Removed a few of Plant's 'whoos' and 'alrights' after the songs that overly extended the track length.
- There was a drop-out at 2:01 of 'Ship of Fools'. I cut it out, but there remains a tape warble and glitch at 2:00 in the song.
Tranehead's notes: These are the RAW recordings, before editing and adding station ID's etc. In other words, these are the tapes before the broadcast version was put together, NOT the pre-FM LP or CD master that was used for final broadcast. Maybe they should be called the PRE-PRE-FM masters!
In some cases, a song will start and then suddenly stop and restart. That is on the original master reels (and these cassettes) and not a defect or mistake in this or any of these torrents. Usually happening at the 30 min. mark or thereabouts, indicating (to me) that multiple reels were used to capture the entire concert. -Original
