Depends how they allocated budget to the release. I guess no more than any other soundboard release. Kinda like a tv show, FTD spends more on some "big budget" episodes (like remixing and mastering multitrack tapes), and treat the soundboards like "ship-in-a-bottle" episodes, minimal cost. They retail for the same so the additional margin on the soundboards helps cost-average on the multitrack releases. If the original source is indeed 2-track binaural of some kind, and assuming it's all one show (that's been questioned before), the engineer would need to do additional editing and mixing work prior to mastering; more hours. My hunch is FTD put this out as cost effectively as possible, ran the tape to digital with some EQ (and I suspect some compression/limiting) and put it out. Note it wasn't mastered by Vic Anesini, like so many of the Classic Albums, but farmed out to Jan Eliasson, who's done a smattering of soundboard work for FTD. I believe they have a "pre-LP-master" source of some kind. When people started to notice all that had been remastered for Rock Around The Bloch was the processed 1980 EAP LP tape (listen to when the tape drops out, the 1980 added reverb tails over it.) I recall some self-defense from the FTD engineer that he wanted to use the pre-LP master source, but it was out of his control. It was never conclusively explained.
