Notes:

NOTE THAT VOLUME DOES VARY QUITE A LOT BETWEEN SIDES

Side one a bit messy – seems like it was probably off station, so a lot of hum, crackle and hiss to remove.
iZotope RX2 denoiser for hum and hiss, Goldwave pop/click tool on default setting for crackle.
Not perfect, but perfectly acceptable. Note that the sound overall is depressed during Changes – either off station or tape problem.

Disc 1
Tape flip during one of the DJ links – have split into tracks 127 and 128, but am unsure if there’s any content missing (probably is)
Tiny gap removed at 44 seconds in All The Madmen – three little jumps close by.

Disc 2
Tiny gap removed at 1:26 in Oh! You Pretty Things – jump as a result.
Tape flip between link track 215 and Five Years. Clean enough.

Disc 3
Disc 3 is a little short on time – believe it’s the start, rather than end, that’s trimmed.
Tape flip in link between Everything’s Alright and Future Legend. Don’t know if anything’s missing, so have split into tracks 323 and 324

Disc 4
Tape flip during David chat segment (425) – seems to have involved minimal loss.
