version "a", From the Righteous To me - 1993 set of preboard tapes:, SOUND: Okay, obviously if you look at the notes above this may not look pretty, and it isn't at first glance, but it looks a lot worse than it sounds. The cook went to bed and left this one in the oven overnight, low volume half the time, but the vocals are out in front and when the volume dips for the bulk of the concert you can crank the sound and the high end is set nicely and things go pretty well. There is a lot of dirt on the recording though, but again, nothing so intrusive that you can't ignore. I think a lot of it stems from the overcooked vocals distorting so close to the surface. Lots of digi-scraping, but it's all light and I'll note most of it in the notes. It'll clean up easy I imagine should somebody be so inclined, and things are warm and balanced otherwise, especially Tony and that crazy bass., BOTTOM LINE: Brave the oft-buzzy vocals and you'll hear one damn great show. Easily one of the best vocal performances I've heard in this set without question. Bob is putting on a phrasing clinic, marvelous. Highly recommended, here's hoping this gets a remaster and smoothing out by somebody who can afford to go through this with loving attention one day, it deserves it. Makes me want to go trade for the audience source just to grab a ticket and hear it again, this time with everybody else..., Recording notes and comments, 2005 by the proud members of the Glenn Cripes Fan Klub

bittorrent download 01/05; this one more complete with last track; eac compare with previous version found this essentially the same except track boundaries shifted slightly and a few slight differences (did not listen to all of this one);

(a bittorrent from 10/08 looks like most of this set with same filenames but describes itself as "Important note: I downloaded this in February and discovered that there's a md-5 mismatch on following tracks: d1t9, d2t4, d2t7 and d2t8. However, there's nothing wrong with the actual music-files (you'll have to chose decode though errors). It might be that the uploader may have altered this four files , but I don't understand enough about this technology. Bottom-line: They play normally both as flac and wav and are great listens.")

(a bittorrent from 11/16 has matching md5; described as "Contrast clause: This recording differs audience recording: Bob Dylan 1993-04-17 Knoxville aud. This torrent is a Pre-Board from the RTM box set, that means it is a line recording, probably hooked to a sound monitor, but it is not a soundboard (SBD) recording in the sense that it does not represent the feed going out to the audience. It frequently emphasizes several instruments and/or vocals at the expense of others. Most of the RTM box set recordings have Dylan's vocals up front, but often they are recorded too hot and have volume fluctuations as the taper tries to compensate. Some of them, however, are excellent recordings., Lineage: Unknown." with filenames like "bd1993-04-17RTM_d1t01.flac"; xref-01802)
