Fix notes:

Denoise to both sides, minor machine hum

Small gap at 25 seconds in 1984 removed – trivial impact.
Gap between Aladdin Sane and All The Young Dudes remained. Crops some of the All The Young Dudes intro.
Gap removed at 30 seconds in Knock On Wood – loses the middle of the song. Further cut removes the end of the song.

Reworking of disc two used parametric equaliser:
4177.8 Hz ± 20Hz – reduced by 70%: removed some of the worst of the whoosh, but can’t remove all

Small gap in It’s Gonna Be Me, at 58 seconds, removed. No music lost.
Gap between It’s Gonna Be Me and Space Oddity removed, opening notes of Space Oddity clipped.
Gap at 5:27 in Space Oddity removed – maybe a second lost.
Tiny blip in Future Legend @ 1:01. Left alone.
Gap removed from Time @2:21. Maybe a second lost.
Gap between Time and The Jean Genie – removed, opening notes of The Jean Genie clipped
Gap in crowd noise between Rock’n’Roll Suicide and John I’m Only Dancing (Again). Removed.
