Thanks to C* and AH for the original tape/seed.

In memory of Anthony H. Wilson, founder of Factory Records.

This seed is taken from a digital clone of the original transfer, not from the remaster seeded here back in 2006. With the recent passing of Tony wilson, the upcoming Joy Division movie, Control and subsequent planned heap of reissues, here's probably the only JD soundboard not to be officially issued, in it's full glory (well, except for the incomplete No Love Lost).

I've been meaning to clean this up for ages. The original had many, many little drop-outs and an imbalance between the channels. This was probably down to the deteriorating quality of the original tape or dirty tape heads. There were also about 200 digital clicks which have all been manually removed. This allowed me to normalise the whole show, track by track to allow playback at fairly constant volume.

You can now hear snare, hi-hats and symbols without the need for further digital enhancement. There is absolutely no noise/hiss reduction so there is still a slight hiss, predominantly on the right channel.
