- volume in right channel boosted by approximately 5 decibels throughout, apart from a couple of small sections where it was a little less or more
- a significant number of clicks have been removed from the Lol Coxhill & Steve Miller set. The Hatfield's sets were relatively clean (apart from noises where the mic was moved or knocked), only a few clicks have been removed
- the Hatfield's set 2 and the encore were sent to me as three files. There were fades in and out. I've cross-faded to smooth the transitions.
- light noise and hiss reduction applied throughout
- polished with iZotope Ozone


Here's what Simon had to say about his recording gear "It was a shitty little plastic mic into a mono portable Sony, one of the ones about the size of a brick."

All things considered, he got a remarkably good recording.

Thanks to Simon for capturing this show. Thanks also to Martin Bloomfield for being persistent, getting the disc to me and putting the setlist together.
