1973-08-01 BBC In Concert (16-bit) (FLAC)
FM > (?) > tape > CD-R > EAC to wav > flac > wav > speed corrected with wavelab > flac
Original notes by gongadee:

I got this from a dc hub, below is the original text file.

"I got this concert in a trade about 5 years ago. I have simply transferred from tape
to CD, ripped using EAC and encoded using Flac.

The details I have are:

Broadcast on BBC radio on 1 August 1973 from the Paris Theatre London.

1. Can You Understand
2. Let It Grow
3. Ashes Are Burning

Considering its age (and the fact that I love any Renaissance recordings),
I think it sounds very good.""

From Flick:
Thanks to gongadee for the original seed, it is very much appreciated.

The original upload had a very noticeable speed problem
ie: it runs too fast. Since I was doing a speed correction for myself I thought I'd
share it with you all. I did my correction with Wavelab by decreasing the pitch by
85 cents which to my ear sounds pretty close to correct based on comparing
the live version of "Can You Understand" with the official remastered CD version.
I also normalized the overall volume.
