I downloaded a couple of Tanglewood songs off of thewhoitalia. I didn't
think either of these effects was obvious on Young Man Blues, which was
terrific, by the way. I think I heard what Scott's talking about on Amazing
Journey. Yes, that would make it hard to listen to. Also, I thought I
heard what Mark's referring to on My Generation.

If you're describing a recorder that adjusts recoording level automatically
depending on source volume, I think you're right. I've never used a 1970
vintage movie camera, but I assume it would do something like that. Do you
know if the source is an audience 8mm home movie? Or is the boot video just
a lesser quality version of what's on the 30 years DVD. Anyway, they
really do need to release as much pro-quality footage of this show as
