Source: LDB Special Series #302

Notes:
Since the LDB version, which was supposed to be a lower generation source,
was released earlier this year on Dime, I was interested in a serious attempt of
restoration.

I knew it would have been difficult. The sound quality of the source is rather
poor, the frequency response ends below 10 kHz and the hissing is covering most of
the remainder.

However, I was intrigued by the idea to get the remaster out in time for the 40th
Anniversary of this concert, which we all know is famous in many ways - the first
concert abroad, the oldest available recording of a live concert (apart from the 40
sec snippet of Roundhouse of course), the only available recording of the famous
song "The Light", which features embryonic elements of later songs, notably
"Lilywhite Lilith". I even persuaded David Raphael to do another one of his
fantastic artworks, in Trespass style of course and he delivered already in last
summer.

So if the remaster is actually finished before the Anniversary's year 2011 is over,
why releasing just one of the six songs instead of the whole thing? - There are two
reasons. First of all: I'm still not satisfied with the result. By comparing this
example to the numerous older remasters you might think this one does indeed sound
better than all of them. And you are probably right, but I think there is still
room for improvement. And this leads to the second reason: A new version of Cedar
Cambridge (V7) has been launched this year. The studio I am working for not only
agreed to upgrade to the new version recently, the order includes all restoration
plug-ins that are new or previously missing as well, so it makes not much sense to
complete the remaster just in order to get it out in time for the 40th Anniversary.

So this is just a teaser to the real thing, which most likely will sound better
than this one. Hence there is no artwork or the usual liner notes - just nine
minutes of a great song. Enjoy!

Happy new year 2012 by the way, see you there! :)
