This is an EQ'd version of a pre-FM download, albeit with 1969 added in (it was missing from the download version) - I shared this back in 2011, thought it was time to share it again, here.
This latter version was clearer but had very excessive treble, with a little
apparent treble distortion. This noise does seem to stem from the original
recording, as I noticed it was there in the background on my tape version, but
buried under tape hiss (which isn't bad on my original seed, but it is there).
I have mixed this to reduce that treble noise so that now I find it an ideal
match between my original tape version - slightly hissy, but very gutsy - and
the clearer version - very clear, too much treble / treble noise.
I think this sounds very good now, as good as the KBFH (official) CD version of
the Boston Channel 1988 concert to my ears.
