I'm listing this as it was shared. However, I do not think this is a master Mike Millard source because what we have available is first generation copies of his tapes. Not that this makes much difference sound wise with the high quality taping that Millard did when he was alive.

I really like this specific Badgeholders release of this show. It is one of the more complete copies and has an excellent, full range of sound in the mix. To my ears, this is one of the very best recordings and mixes of this show.
There is some slight audio clipping in a few tracks but it is very minor amounts and nothing to worry about. There is one thing I did notice while listening to the show with headphones and looking at the waveform. The audio is slightly heavier in the left channel. I doubt many, if any, people would even notice this if they were just listening through their home theater setup or not listening with headphones. In fact, listening with headphones you soon forget about it too and it becomes unnoticeable. But looking at the waveform you can tell it is ever so slightly heavier in the left channel. Badgeholders could have balanced this but I guess they never noticed it.
Badgeholders did amplify the audio it looks like but it creates no problems. They did a great job on this one and especially when you compare it to most of the other labels and their lack of perfecting the sound they don't exhibit many times. In fact, some have messed up their releases with their lack of knowledge and what they did with EQ'ing the audio and similar changes.
I uploaded the another excellent copy of this show in the past which is the Winston Remasters copy. Both of these copies, as well as the unaltered first generation unmarked copy, are my favorites for this specific 1975 performance. The recording done by Millard was so professional sounding that even a messed up copy of this show still sounds excellent most times. It's hard to ruin such a great job they had to work with.
HERE is the link to my previous Winston Remasters upload two years ago if anyone wants to compare it or just get it for their collection. You cannot go wrong either way.
I hope you enjoy the show...
