Essen 1969 [Goody Speed/Pitch-adjusted Remaster, 1CD]

Live at the Grugahalle, Essen, Germany; October 9, 1969. Fairly good audience recording.

Thanks to Goody for sharing the show at Dime.

Goody noted:

Thanks to the original taper, uploader, and Dime.

This remaster corrects the very slow/flat speed/pitch of it’s-now banned source (courtesy of AlexPhoenix - thanks!) as well as a few other updates.

Still a good bit of the old distortion going on. Very little could be done about it. Where it was in the red I brought it down to be more technically correct, but I can’t undo what an overtaxed old microphone sneaked into a 1969 maximum dB venue hath wrought…

Thanks to Cafe La Llave, I was able to quickly work this up on a caffeinated binge…

+ + + + +

Original notes:

All I’ve done is replace bad sections of the right-hand track with the left, then amplified those copied bits down by -2db, using Audacity.

No other edits to the music or sound, except some minor tracking fixes

+ + + + +

Goody’s additional lineage:
TLH (WAV) > Audition (Pitch Bender +87 cents; minor click repair; levels adjusted to correct those in the red where found; tracking updates; delete duplicate bit at the beginning of ‘I’m Ready’) > TLH (FLAC Level 8; Align sector boundaries; .ffp) > foobar2000 (tags)
