The lineage was not written very well and is short and confusing. But it is clearly stated this is the master copy too. And if I determine it is a 1st generation copy and not a digital clone of the master, I'll come back and update the information. But the resources I've used all say it is a digital copy of the master in one way or another. I believe the lineage prior to me is saying it is the analog master (audience 2 discs) put to 3 different CD-R copies. Or, the master tape was transferred to two analog sources and then to CD-R? I'm keeping it as it's being called for now and that is a master copy.
Analog master recording - A2 > CD-R3 > SHN > me > TLH > WAV (to test for lossiness and align sector boudaries) > Audacity (to view waveform, embed metadata/track titles & info, and then to re-encode) > FLAC 8 > TLH (to double check for SBE's and create and verify new ffp & md5 files) > you

I have a busy day today so I don't have a lot of time to critique the recording. But I can copy and paste some of the original sharing party's notes. I'd credit them but I have no idea who they may be. Here's a copy and past of some of their shared information:
"Notes: A very nice recording. The sound quality is excellent and it's a stereo recording. I'd give it an Ex- since there are some clap happy folks near the taper, but not to the point of distraction. The taper also bumps the mics a few times...The performance is electric! Dave's solo during Pigs 3DO is amazing! There are about a hundred highlights during this show in my opinion, but you'll have to check it out for yourself."
I hope you enjoy the show...
