Notes: At some point along the way, a fake stereo effect seems to have been added in an attempt to widen the sound of the original mono source.
Since both channels were indentical (but slightly out of synch), I replaced the right channel with a copy from the left.
This entire copy of the show was running extremely fast, so I slowed it down using another (incomplete) copy of the show for reference.
Many songs early in the set were muddy, so I did my best to bring out better sound.
Overall, the show still sounds rough but I think it's more listenable than it was.
Many thanks to the original uploader circa 2005 whose name I've lost.
