I personally like the copy I uploaded here in the past the best. But no matter what label or copy you find of this show, barring a terrible fan remaster of course, you'll have a superb soundboard when you get it.
This is the Bertha Remaster of Empress Valley Supreme Disc's St. Louis Blues release.

These are some notes I'm copying and pasting from someone involved with Bertha Remaster projects. This is what he had to say on this Bertha Remaster copy as well as what the Bertha Remaster projects normally consist of:
"Digitally remastered using a custom built, Dual-DAW, nicknamed "Bertha", by email@example.com. Completed on January 11, 2005. Under Spectral and Wav analysis, the original source was found to have excessive audio compression applied, and some type of noise reduction.
By listening test only, the original source was found to have excessive high end eq applied. Together, the audio compression and eq have resulted in a highly abrasive sound at flat setting. The noise reduction was well done and did not affect the "Bertha" process.
Most "Bertha Remasters" are done using original, unprocessed sources. The less that has been done to an original source the better the results. Reversing the effects of a highly processed source such as this one is very difficult. I did not expect much, but I am pleased with the results.
The original track timings were used for retracking."
While I agree that the Bertha Remaster recordings I've heard usually are the many times the best sounding sources, this is not always the case. In this specific case, I like the Liquid Led label's Better Late Than Never copy best so far as far as sound goes. It is the copy I uploaded here in the past. But no matter what I like, both copies are above superb sounding.
The mediocre Trader's Little Helper lossiness test indicates that some frequencies were likely cut (from my understanding at least) by Bertha in this remastering. It is not a lossy recording and that is a fact. But don't let TLH, a great and resourceful piece of software except when it comes to testing for MPEG sourced material, worry you about any lossy properties.
As for the work done and the lineage, more is given above in the description than was given in the share. So the short desription is "EVSD > Bertha Remaster work" and that's what we have.
