Running a little too fast, speed correction with a factor of 96%.
16Ω second repeated section @ 9:27 in Time, removed.
Loud pop removed from Let’s Dance @ 7:14.
5:28 removed from Let’s Dance @ 6:25, which is largely sounds outside the arena, and nothing of musical value that’s audible from within.
At 6:25 the start of the little gobbet of Modern Love had a pause surge, which I’ve simply removed.
Further 4:09 of no musical merit, but lots of train noises and clatter, removed at 12:07 in Let’s Dance.
16 seconds of what seem to be wind noise immediately before the start of Time – volume reduced and one two-second chunk removed.
Modern Love starts with a pause surge – removed with a fade in.
Loud pop removed from Modern Love @ 49 seconds

Running a little slow – speed correction with a factor of 102%.
Too bassy. Goldwave Equaliser used, with -6dB @ 60Hz and 150Hz and -3dB @ 400Hz.
The ticking noise on some tracks is on the source tape.
30 seconds of unusable material removed at 5:06 in Heroes, where any chat from the sound stage is completely obscured by a very noisy conversation between the taper and a passer-by.
17 seconds of a dog barking removed from 8:52 in Zeroes.
Right channel is shot on Zeroes and Glass Spider – replaced by left channel with 0.002 second offset.
8 second gap in chat bit during Glass Spider (7:16).
Join just before second Glass Spider – tidied with fades.
Final 10 seconds removed from second Glass Spider – sound of a child whinging.
