Remastering Notes
Volume normalized
Clicks removed by hand
Some dropouts fixed
Corrected to true mono
Announcer between tracks 05 & 06 removed, crossfaded back together
Dead space after Track 13 removed
Fade-ins and fade-outs un-done so tracks start and end at full volume (Tracks 14-17)
Speed correction (Tracks 14-17)
There was no compression or noise reduction done to these recordings by me, however, it sounds like there was some noise reduction already present on Tracks 14-17.

Thanks to Artery and BriggY for making the raw material available!

Please do not sell or transfer to MP3!
