Here's something special I thought I would share with the Zappateers tracker first. One thing I always disliked about this tape back in the day was that it was slightly inferior to the LP boot, despite sounding somewhat decent. Recently I was fiddling around with this show and I was lamenting over the lack of stereo imaging, with everything leaning to the right and barely anything happening in the left channel. Because I am more experienced now, I suspected that this might be because of phase issues. Sure enough, when I checked I noticed a phase offset of about 40 samples, which is a lot. So of course, when the phase offset was corrected, the sound quality improved dramatically. Much of the mix moved to the center with some horns on the left and keyboards to the right, just like the official releases. I also took the liberty of fixing the muddy, dull EQ. The results are nothing short of spectacular. It went from what was once a weak A- to a very strong A+, and it blows away the LP boot and Beat The Boots releases. I think you will agree. Enjoy!

great thanks!

as someone who has only heard the BTB official releases - are there other original bootlegs or remasters like this I should track down?

All of the shows in the BTB series are available in better quality and more complete on the main tracker. Even the Unmitigated Audacity show, which sounds extremely poor on the official release, sounds somewhat decent on the tracker.

A skim through the catalog can help you find what you're looking for:
