Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band
Bottom Line NYC (E) 1977-11-26

Here is the third of four shows from two nights as captured by the Grape. Two tapers were present and recently the other master source was posted here and elsewhere. This is the first digital circulation of this source as far as I know, despite it having been transferred about 8-9 years ago. The two sources sound remarkably similar but a careful comparison does reveal distinct differences. Grape and the other taper know each other and did at the time of the show.

When Grape sent his tapes to the west coast to Grner1 for archiving and digital transfer, he sent both the cassette masters and the 1st gen. reel copy of this run. We were surprised to discover that the cassettes had faded some from their original fidelity and that the reel actually sounded better. Crisper, brighter and clearer. In retrospect that was not all that surprising considering that the reel uses about four times more oxide to store the signal and was hardly played in the intervening years, if at all. So for that reason the reel was transfered rather than the master cassettes. This was not a close call and please trust that what is presented here represents the best possible version of this source.

Exact gear for capturing this is uncertain. Grape went through a number of setups during the 70s. Master cassettes were transferred shortly afterward to a TEAC 2300 r to r and Maxell UD 35-90 7" reel @ 3.75 ips 1/4 track mono.

Circa 2003 Grner1 transferred, edited and mastered audio CDs. 2012 he extracted the audio and created flacs
