ICELAND 1988 Question

Post by Floater » Wed Nov 24, 2004 10:58 pm

I've recently got a hold of this faboulous performance through a member of this awesome forum and have a question regarding possible glitches near the end of disk two.
Begginning at track 10 on disk two light sounding pops and crackles begin to appear and continue on throughout track 11 (Suzanne) and midway through track 12 (So Long Marianne). Would this be caused from a bad burn or was it originally on the master disks from the source? If anyone else who has this lovely performance can comment I'd be damn greatful. Thanks to all

I got a low-gen cdr and the flaws are there. I believe it is from bad DAT transfer but I'm not sure. Anyway, I don't think you'll have a better copy than the one you have.

Yes, I heard that all those cracking is also on the soundboard mastertape, or there are present at least on the first generation rec made from it. Never heard of better copy.
