The original recording is from the soundboard but had tape hiss and was quite tinny with virtually no bass - most of what you could hear was vocals and synths that were too bright. Gentle noise reduction and EQ helped with that. There were also a few defects that needed fixing which took a while, including correcting the pitch and repairing some dropouts. Considering the age of the recording and the bad mix on the night - Andy's voice is often far too loud - its very very listenable now; I hope you enjoy the result. At the start of Messages listen out for Andy imploring the sound engineer can you turn the organ down! (more...) -Original
