The Remastered Collection
- volume 8
Back Bay Theatre/Winterland Outtakes
Remaster Quality: An excellent, well balanced audience tape as the PA is excellent giving a good balance to the vocals and drums. This is from a 2nd generation copy and sound is excellent. The remaster reduced tape noise and got rid of the hall bass boom (100 & 200Hz). This very realistically captures there live sound as it is all well balanced. The set has been split after Stepping Out because there was a tape change and the start of Traintime was rough as the tape sped up, which is now edited out.
Comment: This is one of their great concerts - we are very lucky it was captured for us to enjoy.

The Winterland Outtakes
San Francisco, USA, 10th March 1968
Remaster Quality: This night was the prime source for the official releases. This is an audience recorded on the bass side. The PA is excellent so the drums and vocals are very clear. The guitar is distant but clear. Some tape stretch and flutter is in evident but quality is reasonable. We're Going Wrong is actually from a reference tape so quality is notably superior. Once again filtered but with treble boost to get more guitar. Balance is now reasonable but overall quality can only be classed as reasonable
Comment: Rounds out the Winterland releases and shows that the released Stepping Out is not from this night! Sunshine and Stepping are both superior to the official releases.
