“The Words Get Stuck In My Throat” sounds different from the rest of the recording and might be from a different show completely.


The first circulating show recording with Alan. Lots of unreleased songs, everything at a slower tempo than later in 1977.

xMMx Revision

[xMMx revisions have been treated to provide the smoothest listening experience. Please keep all notes with these revisions and do not distribute them in place of the original recordings.]



Evened out L-R balance and apparent volume, which varied significantly throughout.

Using tuning software, assessed pitch deviation (27c sharp [1-16], 8c flat [17]) and adjusted.

Removed 3.5 seconds of dead space following “Praying Hands.” Removed 4 seconds of dead space between sets 1 & 2 and applied fades.


TLH for sector boundary alignment.

“The Words Get Stuck In My Throat” sounds like it is from a different gig. It comes after the 2nd tape flip and the crowd sounds bigger and way more enthusiastic than on the previous 16 songs. The wave form also looks way more compressed than on all the other songs.
