    Pretty sure Plangent has only been applied to the mainstream releases, not the Dick's/Download Series/Road Trips/Dave's releases.

    I believe that’s right. Norman does a fantastic job on everything, so it’s easy to think that all the bells and whistles are on everything.

    Umm, they are all the same? Charlie farmed out some of the mastering work from the huge “box” of tapes he acquired last year.

    I went to grad school there (04-10). The thought of them playing the Rambler Room is just awesome. Go Ramblers!

    20 September 1970- Fillmore East. A new transfer from what appear to be the 2nd generation reels of the entire show. The opening Uncle John's Band sounds wonderful, if the quality is consistent through the whole show this may be the upgrade of the Century.

    Off topic but remind me guys to never ever again drive my rig through the local Passaic roads.

    Thanks in advance. :disgust:

    Hey Brother- don't drive your rig through local Passaic roads. This warning may apply in many other crumbling cities in the old industrial Northeastern US.

    PS- Don't ever try that in downtown Santa Fe, streets here were designed for horses and folks walking.

    7 years of grad school? Dayum. I couldn't do that. I got my M.S. in one accelerated, hellish, overwhelming year but then it was OVER.

    It's about time to start hitting some 1977 shows. Last year's box first and then a chronological run through of 11/2, 11/4, and 11/5, to get ready for 11/6.

    I wonder if there's a future for the Grateful Dead in the world of virtual reality. The thought just popped into my head a few minutes ago and I am now pondering its potential for awesomeness. I had a VR experience over the holidays and it was intense. Maybe it's not such a good idea, though. My head would probably explode.

    I lived in Garfield, NJ for 8 years right next to Passaic and when I got my car a couple of years in by 2007, I avoided Passaic and it’s nasty roads as much as possible.

    Remember that the old Capital Theatre was in Passaic and a few friends of mine saw Jerry there:)

    Oh yes - I’m going to the Capital in Port Chester this Saturday:)

    Not really a venue, but a little strange...

    Another Florida venue - Pirates World - a buccaneer themed amusement park in Dania Florida (supposedly at the hotel before/after this gig is where Truckin' was written.)

    Same source reels as what has always circulated, except for Jamie Waddell’s hodge-podge from various sources, which sounds much better in some places, worse in others.

    I pulled out some CDs and the Garcia debut was the first one that grabbed my interest.

    I remember from the Kreutzmann book he was paid the same as Ram Rod, who got producer credit, which insulted Kreutzmann.

    Wasn't this out of print for a long time? I feel like if Aoxomoxoa went gold, this probably should have too, eventually.

    One of those skeletons should really be holding a Spiedie.

    I was last there in 1983 for a Dead show at the Broome County Arena (a very psychedelic show). The most important thing about that town, from our perspective, is that it is the home of the McIntosh factory. Stacks of MC2300's should grace the cover, maybe a helicopter trying to lift off with a load of amps in the back, struggling to make it's way back to Watkin's Glen.

    Picking up in Passaic this morning.

    Awful weather and a migraine from yesterdays insanity.

    But i picked up from wjere i left off the other day on 11 11 73 with Weather Report Suite. How appropriate eh?

    Made it through that sick Dark Star and Eyes and China Doll is the current stopping point.

    I went to school there too (undergrad). It used to trip us out thinking about them playing that room! :)

    The new transfer offers an incremental sound quality improvement, small but real. But... it is missing part of the intro to the electric set, And We Bid You Goodnight should have been mono from the right channel only (easily fixed, but why not do it), and I still think that using the AUD for the last part of Caution (after the reel flip) and the first half or so of Feedback makes a better listening experience (although the AUD is more than a whole semi-tone fast and should be slowed down appropriately). And 24/96 is silly; the signal falls well below the noise level at about 15 kHz.

    Thanks for the details RB. As you may recall I spent a lot of time tinkering with the last round of upgrades that circulated in 2016. I d/l'd this last night and will definitely give it a listen over the weekend.
