This list is not meant for bad "sounding" shows. Its focus is on shows that are on the tracker, yet do not meet the tracker's "standards" for one reason or another. There are most likely superior sounding versions of a few shows that are on the tracker, but that is beyond the scope of this document.

Here are a few flaws which may cause a show to be listed here:

  • NR. Duh. We don't like it. We don't want it. We should point at it and taunt it wherever we find it, so it stops sitting at our lunch table.
  • "Tweaking" - I consider this a form of NR, since NR literally stands for "noise reduction", and tweaking usually involves getting rid of that which we deem "noise". If it ain't raw, it should be on this list.
  • Bad filenames. 001.FLAC. Frank-Zappa_001.FLAC. Frank-Zappa-New-York-City_Track01.FLAC. Frank-Zappa-In-New-York-City-Taped-by-Some-Guy-and-Transferred-by-Someone-Else_1970_track01.FLAC. If it doesn't meet the naming conventions, it's on the shitlist!
  • Incomplete shows. 10/31/78. Shows without encores. Shows without intros. Shows from bootlegs that only captured a portion of the longer tape. SBD sources without AUD fills, AUD sources without SBD fills - if we know there's more material that's missing from the Zappateers version, it's incomplete!
  • other glaring inconsistencies. Good example: 3/3/88 and 3/4/88 are two shows in one seed, both of which have been filled with material from completely different shows. Yuck!


For more info, read the beginning of the "main" post!

Giving this a bump so it'll be on top of the forum.
