Disc 1 plus tracks 1-4 from Noggin version:

iZotope RX2 throughout, some quite persistent hiss.

Running a tiny bit too slow. Speed correction with factor of 102%.

Further problem @ 1:39 in Fame, with gap and some loss of music. Fade-out/in

Second version used for tracks 5 onwards on disc 2:

Hang On To Yourself and Ziggy Stardust, right channel mute for most of the songs. Replaced with left channel with 0.002 second offset.
Some mucking about with tape in the middle of Suffragette City – left alone.
Another clumsy join in crowd noise at end of Art Decade. Removed.
Definite tape join on original between Alabama Song and Station To Station – removed with fade-out/in
