St Paul Civic Center - 3rd May 1970 - Raw Source

Info taken from: http://home.online.no/~hpjohnse/hendrix.html

Civic Center, St.Paul, MN 03.05.70 - Raw Source
(Aud [ ] / 70:42 (78:36 incl.extra track) / Almost Complete show)

When the St.Paul recording was transferred to DAT after it's discovery in 1997, there were made 2 versions of it: A straight version (this) and a Digitally Restored version. The Digitally Restored version is the one Commonly circulated in Traders' circuits, making this the "rarity" of the two.
- This version also includes 7:54 of Led Zeppelin's "Bring it on home" (recorded live) at the end of the tape, which indicates that the Hendrix show was taped over a recording of a Led Zeppelin-show.
- Refer to UniVibes issue 27, p.39-26 for a comprehensive review of this tape, online version available here - http://www.univibes.com/JimiPlaysStPaul.html

u/k gen (possibly early low gen) cassette > hard disc > CD wave editor (split tracks) > wave pad audio editor (remove silence at start and end of tape) > traders little helper WAV > FLAC conversion > CTT

This is a direct copy of the cassette (maxell) I received in early January 1998.
Transfer of the tape is as noted, this is a straight transfer, nothing has been done to alter the audio.
Itís just as it was on the original tape, there are imperfections but thatís how it is.
With many thanks to Jelly Cat excellent artwork included.

My computer went into automatic update mode and shut itself down overnight just as I was about to complete giving back 'DEFA' version of this one, and now this morning it's gone. I'm presuming it was pulled for some reason, but I don't know why! This torrent features uncompressed wav files making it that much larger and harder to give back with so many complete. Any clue as to why the other version was pulled?

Sorry for the bogus info above! I fond the 'missing' torrent further down the page!
