Several problems with the show due to severe taper incompetence:
-Beginning of Elevation intro cut off.
-Fumbling with mics and poor level adjustments during Elevation.
-Equipment problems for first ~10 minutes resulting in loss of right channel in several spots.
-Right mic ripped free from taped position as taper asks nearby idiots to talk somewhere else. Mic noises and odd sound during Desire/Stay.
-A few other spots of drop-outs/mic noise here and there.

Much editing done to correct problems as best as possible. Channel dropouts masked by
dropping to mono. Much EQ done to bring down bass, which is still overly present in spots.
Many claps removed via CEP's "Click/Pop eliminator--fill single click now," but many more remain.
