A special thanks to iluvdamusic for sharing his master.

Park West
Chicago, IL
August 1982

Westwood One LP's (strobe speed verified) using Audio Technica AT8008 line contact cartridge>ProTools (Editing) w/ Spark Manual De-Clicker Plug-In>FLAC (Sector Boundaries Alligned)>You

*One 80 minute disc required*

Directly transferred from my original Westwood One 2 LP set, maintaining broadcast order. As far as I know this syndicated concert was aired on radio at least twice by Westwood One. First, as a shorter 60 minute (w/ commercials) version between Dec. 3rd and 5th 1982. Then, as a 90 minute version the week of 10/17/83 in completely different order. The latter broadcast transcription discs are the source of this torrent, approx 76 minutes and some change, total minus commercials. This longer version contains all the same songs, plus more, that were in the original truncated broadcast. Nice sounding show with a few caveats. As is often the case with Westwood One LP's from this era, the pressings were cut at an *extremely* low level and geared for FM broadcast, as much as 27 minutes of material on one LP side, resulting in a show that's a wee tad shut-in compared to the absolute very best recordings. I'd still give it a 9 out of 10. Also, due to the low-level cutting of the records, manual de-clicking was necessary to tidy up a few spots. I have done no additional signal processing other than manual de-clicking, editing out of national commercial spots/announcer overlays and some applause merging. Thus, I'll leave any other mastering decisions to the end user. FWIW, from what I've been told, the band played two benefit dates in August of 1982 at the Park West venue in Chicago, IL -- the 5th and the 6th. I'm not 100% positive which of the two were recorded for this broadcast, though the August 6th date has been used before. Thus, I'll simply use August 1982 to be safe. I also believe that this concert was previously torrented on DIME last year. A kind fellow member sent me the tracklist and there seemed to be one track difference (Chains vs. Free Form Intro), as well as this new torrent being about 4 minutes longer. As an added extra, I've also thrown in the original radio promo, placed at the end of the show for nostalgia's sake. Having not heard the other upload, I can't say whether this new transfer is an upgrade (or not) and what differences may exist. Thus, please enjoy this one for what it is -- a show in its pre-FM state. Feel free to distribute this torrent in its original lossless form. Please, do not re-encode as lossy or sell! Special thanks to Luke and Ken for their extensive work and help with this show. Thank you! -- iluvdamusic.
