Thanks to Lee Farber for the original seed!

There was some re-mastering done to clean up the original tape hiss from this classic show. The processes I took are as follows: 1) Amplified both discs 175% across the board. 2) Sampled a section of silence to obtain a decent noise floor sample (25,000 sample points used). 3) Applied this sample against both discs at 64 percent. 4) Applied a graphic equalizer to boost the high and low spectrums (specifically between 600 - 800 Hz and 8k & 10 kHz)
