I'm going to be uploading shows over the next day or three from my laptop and with limited resources as I am out of town now. I have a very hard time seeing the laptop screen too due to my vision (or lack of it). So my research and things I sometimes do when uploading shows from home will be at a minimal or nonexistent state until I am back home.

ORIGINAL NOTES (copy & paste):
"In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the arrival of Led Zeppelin in Japan. I made my own remastered version of "Led Zeppelin's Flying Rock Carnival 1971 Complete", the authorized edition of 1971-09-23, to remove cracking sounds and correct phase shifting and the loudness balance. Neither equalizing nor noise reduction was done."

It's strange that the lineage shows testing for alignment of sector boundaries (SBE's tested), but there were a few SBE's needing fixing when I checked them. I always mention in the lineage that I checked for SBE's at the end but that's just a formality and is something I do at the beginning and end of the projects before an upload. It probably was something the person that did this remaster did early in the project but forgot to do after things were being wrapped up I am guessing. I've made the same mistake myself before too.
I'm not sure who did this remaster because there is no mention of who did it in the original file on this set. I believe it was "ThePetSounds Productions" which is listed on the text file with "file under" next to it. But I really don't know for sure? Whoever did the work seems to have done a good job and the show sounds like a great-to-excellent recording overall. And the waveform looked fine too with no audio clipping.
Source 7 from the recordings of this show is the primary and best sounding source used. The recording has sources 1, 3, and 5 being used as patch sources to fill in the missing parts of the show not on the source 7 recording.
I listened to the whole 3 CD set yesterday as I was preparing to go out of town for a few days. As I was packing and getting ready for the short trip, I had the concert turned up pretty loud and it sounded nice. The show has some imperfections in it as well as some really nice and clean parts too. But overall, and in comparison with a few other copies of this date I compared this copy too, I believe this was the best or at least one of the best copies from my initial checking.
I hope you enjoy the show...
