This is a remastered release, of the soundboard recording, taken from the Mad Hatter release of
“Takes On Tucson”. As the original release was on LP, there is a slight underlying rumble
present mostly during the in-between song banter. It is not too distracting and really is mostly heard only in the
quieter parts. On this particular show a few touch ups were needed to really bring out the sound. The bottom end
was somewhat lacking so I gave it a boost as well as a bit of EQ. I also widened the sound field slightly to
give the music a bit of space to expand. It now has a richer, fuller sound. The Drums and Bass are also slightly
more up in the mix. I fixed a few clicks and pops and smoothed out the transitions between songs. There are a couple
of cuts in the show. The beginning of Outta Love Again is cut as is the ending of Atomic Punk. I also smoothed out the
LP flips which were after Beautiful Girls, Jamie’s Cryin’, and Eruption. Overall a pretty good show that now sounds
a little better…

Set List:
01)Light Up The Sky 3:39
02)Somebody Get Me A Doctor>Drum Solo 6:59
03)Running With The Devil 4:39
04)Dance The Night Away 3:07
05)Beautiful Girls 3:22

12)Feel Your Love Tonight 6:21
13)Outta Love Again 4:35 (fades in)
14)Ice Cream Man 6:12

When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

The direct link to DIME is dead for me. When I use the guitars101 link and then click the DIME link, it works. Thanks for sharing. I have this vinyl, but I don’t have any other way to transfer it other than direct to MP3.
