This has been my most requested show, so I thought I'd give it a shot.
I was messing around with it a little bit after I released Long Beach, but I couldn't get a satisfactory sound so I dropped it.
However time goes on and I've learned a lot from various projects, so I felt I could give the show justice if I revisited it.

I think that this is easily the definitive copy of this show. The original mix sounds very compressed and kills any of the atmosphere of the recording.
•EQ'd to turn down the very harsh mid-high range, which was dominating the whole show. Went for a more balanced mix.
•Reduced stereo width of low frequencies to keep the bass centered and focused.
•The hi-hats and cymbals are almost entirely gone on the original mix. I have restored them on mine, giving the sound a beautiful shine.
•The frequencies of the right channel on the original only really goes up to 10khz, making it sound VERY lop-sided. I copied the frequencies of 10khz and above from the left channel and
put them into the right, making a fuller and more even sound.
•I did some de-noising and was very careful in not damaging the subtlety in the high end, which was a very important thing for me as the improvement of the high end was going to make or break this remaster.

Please note that Mike Millard was still tinkering with his configuration, so the quality doesn't hit its stride until White Queen.
I had to leave in a little bit of tape hiss at the very start of Tie Your Mother Down because JEMS put in a fade-in, which doesn't play nice with iZotope's spectral de-noise.
