Disc 2, track 01: start cut


Lineage: Unknown Mikes => Analog deck => 1st gen. cassette => Pioneer stand-alone CD burner => CDR => EAC => Audigy Audio Cleaning Lab * => Export to WAV => FLAC front end (level 8)

* Audigy was used to break tracks, raise high and low bands slightly while diminishing midrange, and apply light de-hissing.

This was recorded by John from NC. Brian W sent a 1st generation cassette to ademotte in the early 90's.

Comments by ademotte on original info file:

Pretty good audience recording from the "Tunnel of Love" tour. This comes from my 1st gen. analogs of the show; while there are definitely better recordings from this tour in circulation, I decided to post this because it's a very clear recording with minimal audience noise. The taper was obviously in a good taping spot; with the exception of the anarchy that ensued at the beginning of the first encore ("Born to Run" and "Hungry Heart" are rough, with audience jostling and cheering causing level fluctuations and a brief dropout), there is barely any audience noise in close proximity to the taper.

This was definitely done on amateur equipment (or the dubbing deck wasn't very good) -- the raw recording has limited high- and low-end fidelity and sounds flat. I used Audio Cleaning Lab to both brighten the high end and add punch to the lows. The result is an enjoyable recording. I don't think this is a commonly circulated show, so I thought many might find this worthwhile.

There are a couple of tape flips that I made no attempt to smooth out. Other than the first few seconds of "Cover Me" (noted above), I don't think any significant music is lost. Worth having if you like this tour. The second encore (d3t10-13) is really high-energy.
