"So as luck and fate would have it, JEMS happened to be in position to do
a live capture to DAT of the satellite audio feed that eventually fed this
show's webcast. As I noted in my initial forum post, I do not believe there
is such thing as a "pre-satellite" recording of the show in circulation
(which I suppose would be a true soundboard before it hit the satellite truck).
There are several webcast captures in circulation, and others called
"pre-satellite" which are almost certainly post-satellite in that someone did
what we did and captured the feed coming down off the "bird" as the TV folks
like to call it.
I asked a few questions about this in the forum and Noiseless was kind enough
to post a couple of samples of the best known "pre-satellite" recording of the
show, which I believe was booted as Cockles & Muscles. The samples of that
recording include a big drop outs in "Beautiful Day" and "One" (said to come
from damage to the original VHS tape that recording presumably audio and video)
and other interference.
Our JEMS master does not have the "Beautiful Day" or "One" drop outs and while
I think it may have a minor tick here or there (inherent in the feed), it is
clearly a different source to what is in circulation. I know JH did a lot of
work in Wavelab to clean it up. For those reasons, I believe it should be [an]
upgrade in terms of being more complete and hopefully as good if not better sound.
