  • Pink Floyd May 4 1988 Carter-Finley Stadium Raleigh, North Carolina I was at the show but didn't tape it nor take the pix. Many thanks to Smiley-Dave for letting me borrow the original cassettes. As far as I know this is the only known tape to surface of this show. I don't know if Smiley taped it or not but I do know I had THE original tapes. I borrowed these tapes around 1990. Back then there was no such thing as digital recording for the consumer. In order to preserve the tapes without adding tape hiss or really degenerating the sound was to use a my SVHS HiFi machine to store the audio. Cassette to Cassette copying was out of the question. Many years later I transferred my HiFi master to through a progear DAT using Sony's Super Bit Mapping to my PC which has a Zefiro Acoustics ZA2 digital audio card. On the PC I did some minor level adjusting on the first track since the original tape was overloaded in that spot. Since the show was recorded using cassettes there are a couple songs with cuts in them. I didn't have control of the recording situation unfortunately. I would have brought more tape and changed out tapes between songs knowing the setlist. The tape is typical cassette recording of the time and with the power of Pink Floyd the poor little recorder couldn't effectively handle it. There is some boominess, some spots where the bass tends to overload a little. But all in all this is a VERY clean recording with good balance. The taper was in a decent spot to record, the only thing needed was better equipment and planning. The whereabouts of the original tapes is unknown at this time. I haven't seen Smiley since before 1999. I don't think this tape has circulated much. I have hoarded this tape since I got it. Making very few copies over the years. I made a few copies on CDR of my first attempt transferring the tapes to digital. I didn't use the DAT or the Zefiro the first time. They didn't sound nearly as good as my second pass. I traded them to a record shop that sold boots at the time. I did send a copy of second and final digital transfer to TimV of The Digital Floyd Project. It is unknown how many, if any copies he sold or traded of this show. Other than that I have not traded it. I made two copies of master CDs from the original wav files. One I have been listening to for 8+ years and the other was tucked away. I made the FLAC copies from the stored unplayed master set. PRISTINE cdrs. master cassette > svhs HiFi(1990) > DAT passthru Super Bit Mapping > PC via Zefiro ZA2 > CDR master (oct 1997) > EAC > FLAC NO speed correcting has been done. NO WAV signal processing was done. NO EQ. The ONLY alterations to the original recording was some leveling and a few splices. Some audience only portion Sorrow - cut/splice at 9:16 - tape flip Money - missing a few seconds of coins in the beginning Comfortably Numb - cut 9:31 right at end of song :( I have included the full set of artwork TimV made for these CDs to use in his project. The pictures actually were taken by another friend of mine in the 13th row from the this very show! TimV may have made the artwork and listed this show for trade but please be aware I supplied him with both the audio and the pictures.
