General Notes:

Bill Koucky contacted me and wanted me to try and matrix this sick but
relatively unknown show because neither source really did it justice. I
said I'd give a whirl and sure enough the mix turned out to be a big
improvement. The Oakland Auditorium Arena later became the Henry J. Kaiser
Convention Center so this nice FOB sounds great when coupled with a so-so
SBD which needed much digi snit removal (thanks Chris Ladner) which I used
for set 1 - the second set I used was the Clugston source but there is
nothing in the db, so it is unclear if Scott remastered the problematic
Bruce Fried source or got it somewhere else.  Bill K's 1st gen FOB from
Steve Aldeman that he duped 23 years ago serves as an excellent AUD source.

The first set is on fire with Garcia constantly trying to slow things
down in his song selection (Birdsong as the 3rd tune?!! and TLEO is quite
spirited) but he finally gives and cranks out a ripping Brown-Eyed so Weir
can stretch out on a monster Let It Grow. Second set opening with Scarlet >
Fire is big and groovy, and the Playin' that follows has Jerry referencing
the Woody Woodpecker theme (4:57).  The whole show is played well, no big
surprises, just good ole Grateful Dead.

On the FOH side of things Healy seemed to be playing with a short delay
effect (15ms or so) for most of the first set on both Garcia's guitar
and all the vocals.  It is very noticeable in spots, especially on Garcia's
solo in Bertha and the vocals in BIODTL.  The result is a flange effect
which some might misconstrue as bad synching, but let it be known this is
how it sounded in both sources and is not the result of the matrix.

Thanks to Steve Aldeman for recording the AUD, and to Bill Koucky and
Chris Ladner for transfering, encoding and remastering both SBDs and the
AUD source. Thanks to Scott Clugston for the mystery SBD II source, and
to Dr. Bruce Fried for the SBD I source.
Special thanks to Bill Koucky for motivating me to matrix this wonderful
yet obscure show (even the LlaMA doesn't have anything for this date).

Artwork by Zman - thanks!

Enjoy!

Editing Notes:

- Pitch
Set 1: Both sources were not very close in pitch.  The SBD had to be
pitched down between 53 and 59 cents, while the AUD had to be pitched down only
49 cents.
Set 2: The SBD was relatively close in pitch so I left it as is and
pitched the AUd down about 50 cents.  

- Synch
Because of the speed fluctuation within a given source, multiple edits
were performed to keep the sources synched.  Since the AUD was my
master pitch and time ref, the SBD was synched to the AUD (too many
edits to list).  

- Sonic Quality/Matrix ratio
No EQ was applied to either of the two sources. I applied very sparingly
Waves L2 (limiter) to the master 2 buss to keep things contained, the
levels rarely hitting zero, thus the limiting is quite scarce. All I was
trying to do here is to add some dimension to the SBD by using the
ambience of the AUD. The result is a lively but clear recording, hopefully
close to how it sounded at the show. If I had to guess the SBD/AUD ratio
would be somewhere between 2.5:1 and 2:1.  

- Edits
The following are places where the SBD and AUD had splices, holes or
incomplete coverage in reference to the final matrix timeline.

SBD:
d1t01 (0:00 - 0:14) - missing (tuning)
d1t01 (0:14 - 1:11) - multiple volume moves to smooth out levels
d1t01 (1:39) - feedback - minimized on both sources
d1t01 (3:57) - drum distortion - minimized on SBD source
d1t01 (6:15) - feedback - minimized on both sources
d1t03 (0:03 - 0:16) - 11 pops removed (electrical not digital)
d1t07 (5:57 - 6:01) - missing (tuning)
d2t04 (6:19 - 6:25) - missing (tape flip)
d2t10 (0:00 - 0:06) - missing

AUD:
d1t04 (3:28 - 3:45) - missing (crowd)
d2t04 (5:28 - 6:1 - missing (tape flip)
d2t10 (1:40) - dropout - removed

Full coverage is seemingly achieved although there may be a few
seconds missing from Drums at 6:19 where the SBD had a splice
which I corrected and moved to its proper place.  To maintain
fluidity in the listening experience I made a crossfade here from the SBD
to the AUD rather than a full fade out and fade in.

Original Seeder Notes:  

This is a poor recording of an excellent but very rare show. I put this out
in hopes of finding an upgrade or possibly using it to make a matrix with my
1st gen sen 441 aud that I have put up. It sounds like it could be a monitor
mix at times not all of the instruments are there and the crowd is silent in
the tape. Very strange when compared to the aud and when being in the audience
myself. Tons of energy and power that just does come accross on this recording.
Take it for what it's worth.  The Mix in general poor editing from cassette
to DAT-dead air after Big River and Drums at flips Whitch leads me to belive
that the master was a cassete, no reel to reel at the time anyway...HELP!!!  
send comments to billk at neci.edu Enjoy!!!

C.Ladner's remastering comments:
- there were multiple tiny little micropops throughout the show which I was
 able to sucessfully remove using Waves X-Crackle and Wavelab 5 without
 coloring the sound.
- dead space associated with tape splices removed using Wavelab 5.
- levels adjusted by + 1.7 dB and mastering using Waves L3 Multimaximizer >
 tracking into individual tracks  (previously Me and My Uncle > Big River
 and Scarlet > Fire were one long track) and FLAC encoding (level 5) using
 CDWAV 1.9.  No NR or selective frequency augmentation was used.
- I spliced in the first 8 seconds of the encore (US Blues) from 1st Gen Aud
 Cass Sen 441> Sony D5 FOB source.

This is easily the best SBD recording of this performance I have heard
(having accumulated half a dozen different digital sources).

Notes: This is a great show from a underated year 1982. The band had a great sound
at the time simple garrage band sound, none of the special effects of brent and Healy wasn't messing with
the vocals yet (Hartford 84...). This is a 1st gen of Steve Adleman's master that
I've had since spring of 83. This show is not circulated and I challange anybody to
seed a better copy because they are in fact out there. I have soundboard (????) to DAT copy
from Dr. Bruce Fried that is not great and would not want circulate. Anyway, I was at the run of
5 showsand this and the 28th were played at the same energy and were the best of the set,
with New Years being the letdown. So please dig up the true SB or cleaner Aud Master....
