Well folks, I had really, really hoped to do one huge post containing the whole Holmdel > Hartford > Camden 2000 run, but a combination of just not having the time as well as a couple of the sources being problematic for remastering has led me to this single show remaster post.  Also, I was hoping etree's "10 years ago today" project might hook me up w/ some upgrade sources for the remasters.  So far the only new source I grabbed was 6/30/00, which is ripe for a remaster - nice and full, heavy on the bass. 

I figured since the current tour ends on July 4, and with the big weekend coming up, it would be fitting to just toss up 7/4/00 for now.  And the second set has got to be one of my faves...great flow and ridiculous jamming. The Jibboo is of course legendary, but don't overlook the last section of the Twist jam.  Some chugging, aggressive, classic/hard rock riffs going on right there.

As a couple people have pointed out, the original source is a bit muddy.  I decreased the amount of bass and increased the high end to bring out a clearer listen.  Before I applied the EQ settings, it was difficult to appreciate Trey's nimble noodle work during the 7:39 - 8:30ish section of Jibboo (among other things).  While some of Mike's oomph has been lessened as a result of my tinkering,  I find his notes to be a bit easier to decipher.  Hopefully you'll like the balance I arrived at.  It doesn't quite pack the punch that some of the other sources I've worked with do, but I think it's an improvement.  Finally, the stereo balance was lopsided to the left, so I boosted the right channel to give it a more centered sound.

Enjoy, and HAPPY 4TH!!!

Thanks Kenny Powers!!! Downloading now. I can't tell you how long I've waited to hear a better sounding version of this show, and anything would be an improvement over the original. Just in time for the 10 year anniversary too! I will be playing this all weekend long!

Thanks, Kenny!!!! Check out rebadipaladledotcom to pay you back. Just sbds from hart, spac, mans, so if you haven't gotten your hands on them yet, they're free there and let us know what you want to hear on your end.

I'd love to hear the remastered 6/30/00, one of my favorite first sets in phish history. Please make this happen!!!

Kenny Powers said...

thanks jfarns, good stuff! and FYI, i plan on doing 6/30/00 sooner than later...just got a source from etree i didn't have before and it sounds like a primo remaster candidate.

Awesome vibes, sweet looking setlist. Gonna give this one a spin at work, thanks!

I haaaave (and hate) to ask, but whatever happened to that complete 06.15.2000 remaster you said you were seriously considering doing (after already remastering the two longest tracks)?

I'm absolutely dying to get my hands on a "KP Remaster" of this show, prease prease prease

But once again, thanks for all you do. I don't want to sound ungrateful one bit, your "ghetto fab" remasters have helped convert me from a SBD snob to someone who can enjoy a solid AUD pull too.

Keep on keepin on...

Kenny Powers said...

Fuck, you're right about that 6/15/00! don't ever worry about feeling ungrateful, if i say i'm going to do something and i don't for a while, i most likely either forgot or am super busy. i didn't totally forget about 6/15/00 but have been pretty busy, but since i have the settings all figured out already it should be pretty easy.

Let me try to get on that ASAP - my problem is that I only have one day off during the week where my wife is not home and i can work on all the converting, tagging, uploading etc. She is not cool with me disappearing to the basement to work on this stuff on nights where she's home....she gets the crazy idea that we should spend most of our free time together :)

Kenny Powers said...

Also, for anyone wondering about 6/30/00 and the other Holmdel/Hartford shows I kept saying I would remaster...

another fellow who goes by "JetiMindTrick" recently beat me to the punch and remastered that whole 4-show run.

You can find them on PT as well as Demonoid...if folks check those out and decide they really don't like them, I could give them a shot but I typically try to avoid to doing remasters of shows people have already done.

Maybe my gut feeling that remastering most of those sources would result in an even worse-sounding AUD ended up being good predictions :(

Conrad said...

stoked on this 7/4 remaster! and you know me KP... ive been asking for that 6/30 remaster for days! i see now though that someone else has already done it? so i guess my question is does that mean you're scrapping that remaster for now? do you know if its the same source you were planning on using, or have you listened to it by chance? looks like i have some research to do on PT... that 6/30 show will always be in my top 10 shows... thanks again. and summer 2010 was hott yeah? i was lucky enough to do all 18 and now berk tride and jb as well... what a summer <>< peace

since 6/30 is a special show for you, maybe i'll give the two sources i have a remaster test-run and email you samples...see if you think it's worth doing even though another guy got to it first. i could also email you samples of his remaster...

Conrad said...

i looked on pt briefly yesterday and couldn't find a link to the 6/30 remaster... i trust your judgement on whether or not it needs to be re-done. and i don't want to slow you down in any other remasters you already have planned for us. i'll keep looking for a 6/30 link, if you've got it and could post it that would be killer. either way i appreciate all your hard work and love the remasters. like someone else said, i am becoming less and less of a sbd snob thanks to these awesome remasters <><

any chance there's a newer link now that MU is shot?

Kenny Powers said...

Hi there,

there's a link to the upper right corner of my home page which brings you to my Google Drive, which houses all of my remasters in mp3 format. Unfortunately I don't have the FLACs posted because of the space they would occupy.

Unknown said...

Thanks Kenny. I couldn't find the 7/4/2000 in there, only 9/17 and 10/4 from 2000. No worries, just jonesin' for that show and the spreadsheet is muddy.

Kenny Powers said...

Oh shit, that's sucky. I hope i haven't lost that remaster! I can't imaging I've lost both the mp3 and the FLACs (which I can make new mp3s from). I'll try to look for it when i get a chance...

Jason said...

I was pretty stoked to listen to this re-mastered version of this show (I was at this show), but the megaupload links are dead. Any alternatives?

Kenny Powers said...

Hey Jason,

There's a link to the upper right that leads to my Google Drive folder. Enjoy.
