A speed corrected but otherwise raw transfer of this 4th gen cassette that I received in 1997. My tape runs fast and I am grateful to Bert13 for speed correcting it and spotting and removing couple of bits of repeated material.

This version is shorter than other copies of the concert doing the rounds as it is missing the tuning up before Astronomy Domine. I transferred both channels but then dropped the right one because it was muffled and most of the time notably quieter. My cassette is probably from an earlier transfer from the master than the 1st gen > DAT and low gen sources.

I would sum my tape up as being less distant sounding and better defined than previous versions. It also exhibits some of the usual traits of generation loss such as higher levels of hiss, and during the opening to AD, for example, it is slightly rougher.

Gerrit M recorded the concert. He was also the taper for the recording we have of Rotterdam 1967-11-13.
