FROM A COPY OF THE MASTER 5" REELS


SOURCE:
Sennheiser 805 shotgun microphone > Uher 4000 7 1-2 ips 1/4" x 5" Reel - to - Reel > REVOX B77 w/Dolby (me) > SONY DTC 690 @ 16/32

RESTORATION AND TRANSFER BY MIKE MARTIN:
SONY DTC-690 > AUDIGY 4 (via Toslink) > AUDACITY (conversion to 16/44.1 and editing of Dropouts) > CD Wav > Flac (Level 8)


Dropouts needed to be addressed.
The recording equipment had transport issues and there would be a series of dropouts when each new reel was stared.
For the first few minutes of each tape there are gaps about every second (think 5 " reel turning once at 7 1/2 ips).
chunk chunk chunk chunk chunk chunk.
There were also dropouts throughout the tape but not as many as the beginning of each reel.
Similar issues affect many recordings from this source.
These tapes have been relegated to storage boxes all these years because of the quality issues.
The wave files have been reviewed with headphones to find the dropout gaps which were then spliced together.
Audacity is a nice wave editor and between delete and repair I removed the majority of the defects.
At this time the loudest claps between the songs were removed one clap at a time.
Some of the bumps and bruises of this tape can still be heard if you listen hard enough.
There were hundreds.
Even knowing this stuff you would likely agree that this tape sounds great for it's time.
This concert really shows how good the KINKS were back then.
Loved the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium!
Enjoy

Thanks for this.
It should be John Dalton on bass unless of course he didn't make that gig for some reason and someone filled in for him.

As always, dear Hal, when you offer my beloved Kinks, I send my love to you as well. I was wondering -- back in 2008 you posted their 11-29-69 show at the Fillmore West -- are you able to re-offer this in FLAC? So, so many thanks to you, Hal . . .

XOXO
Patty
