From the info file:

CAMEL
Boarding House,
San Francisco, California
26th June 1976
Radio KSAN broadcast

Date is usually credited as 26th June, but 23rd is also mentioned;

SOURCE: EX- 2nd gen stereo FM tape from personal collection, traded in 1997 from a famous collector in California.
Missing tracks 1 and 2 were taken from the Hogweeds version (see below). There is some FM noise in quieter parts.

CONTRAST CLAUSE. This offer :

- Sounds better than the mono and denoised 'Another Night' PRRP team boot http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=360561

- Has full STEREO sound (except track 1 & 2) compared to the 3rd gen Hogweeds offer (thanks to him) found here:
http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=227595
which sounds OK but is MONO and was equalized. My offer sounds just like it was recorded.

LINEAGE :
-> FM broadcast -> unknown (but great) recording device -> my 2nd gen Maxell XLIIs Type II cassette.
-> Nakamichi Dragon (with NAAC auto-azimuth) Dolby off for playback
-> Zoom H2 -> wav
-> Goldwave v.5.56 for edits, tracks, maximizing at 90%,
-> TLH 2.4.1 (build 160)-> FLAC level 8 align on sector boundaries, md5s
