Nice of Allen to loan me his old tapes to share with you.
Some copies of Allen's recordings do exist out there.
This is the first time that the master has been digitized.
Not the best sounding recordings, but very decent and these are from the master cassettes.
FYI, the first guy that calls out for "Politician" just after "Call My Name" ends would be the taper.
Allen explained that the damaged section in "Crossroads" was due to someone walking past him and catching on the microphone.
I removed the sound of the microphone bouncing on the floor and spliced this back together removing as little as possible.
Some sound disturbances remain but they are at a more acceptable level.
