Volume reprofiling required on Warszawa and Heroes.
Two tiny gaps @ 3.7 and 4.3 seconds in Warszawa removed cleanly.
Pauses between virtually all songs with applause removed – fade-out/in.
Tiny gap in crowd noise after Be My Wife (2:42) – removed, reasonably clean.
Inappropriate pause catches the false ending in The Jean Genie – removed with fades.
Two gaps in Blackout @ 52 seconds. First removed with no impact, second leaves a tiny jump.
Two extra pauses at the end of Breaking Glass (one during the false finish) – both crowd noise, removed cleanly.
Tape flip catches the end of Fame – fade-out/in to join (and tiny gap immediately after join, removed cleanly).
Two little gaps in Five Years @ 2:32 – removed cleanly.
Sector boundary errors resolved using TLH.

  1. I was really looking forward to hearing this one. But, wow, can’t see how you can give this an 8,5. It’s pretty much unlistenable. Thanks for a great site.
