Recording Comments Recording comments
Runs far too slowly, which spoils it for me. Also has sections spliced in from the Lyceum show. [LivingForever]

i4detail release.

Here's the good, bad and the ugly:

GOOD: contains all introductions and is a generally crisp copy of the FM broadcast;

BAD: the playback is slow, noticeably and painfully slow;

UGLY: the splice into Afterglow from another show, whilst well-intentioned, is not clean at all. The sudden jump in pitch sounds bad (highlighting the issue under "bad") and the splice is not very clean either.

The "slow" problem may have been with the source (and not because of the good folks at I4Detail) but it can be corrected using today's digital mastering tools (easier) or...by simply re-recording from the analogue audio source using a slightly faster tape speed (better) and matching the pitch to something "in tune".

The splice would sound better if the slowness is corrected, but it should still be a better splice especially using today's non-linear digital audio tools. I could help on both accounts.... [VariousArtist]

The man who shouts 'Albatross' during the story of Albert - I was that soldier. Also Mike split his yellow trousers at the start of the gig - no smoke machines allowed so the roadies came on smoking instead.[Dave Hodgson]
