~~ ZombiWoof MC DIME seed (upgrade & complete w.fills) ~~

Upgraded re-post of ZOMBIWOOF's initial seed of this show on DIME, (now banned for officially released content) .
Some time later ZW did upload a truncated version, in order to comply with that DIME rule, not to include parts of the recording that have appeared on officially released recordings.
As this seeded version needs some fixes, i.e. speed correction, some volume level adjustment and re-tracking, I am re-posting this version here, including fills from various alternate sources (1st, 2nd and unknown gen) enabling us now to hear this show complete here.

Upgrade mainly consisting of the following fixes:

- re-tracking: it was obvious that the tracks as seeded ("Track 01" etc.) didn't correspond to the actual tunes/song titles.
Re-tracking was therefore inevitable.

- volume level: a large part of this recording has been showing strongly overmodulated areas in the right channel.
I think lowering the volume level by 1.0 or 2.0dB there would create more balance throughout.

- speed correction:
Disc 1 Tracks 01-09: -60cts
Disc 1 Tracks 10-14: -67cts (as suggested by Prof.Goody in one of the DIME seed threads)
Disc 2 Tracks 01-04: -67cts
Disc 2 Tracks 05-09: -60cts

-60/-67cts switch in Disc1 at cut in Orange County solo
-67/-60cts switch back (Disc2) at begin Texas Motel Medley

Oh so close in completing my '88 tour collection...
anyone know if these two circulate?

Bushnell Auditorium, Hartford, CT- February 16, 1988
War Memorial Auditorium, Rochester, N.Y. - March 11, 1988

Some people like cupcakes better. I, for one, care less for them.
