made from the master cassettes
from “dc” our anonymous donor:
oregon, live at the cellar door, washington, dc, october 16, 1976, from the master cassette tapes. the recording was made from the first row of tables, near the low stage, using a portable hitachi mono recorder, with manually set levels, and tdk conventional bias cassettes. this transfer was made in 2013 by playing the master tapes (after the actual cassette reels and tapes were moved to new cassette shells) on an akai gx f31 cassette deck into a pc, where the signal was captured via goldwave. the channel with the strongest signal was copied and the copy was pasted into the opposite channel for true mono sound.
