There are probably several sources out there. Which would explain any
variance in sound quality. For example, my boot, TANGLED UP IN WHO,
was probably made from a poor video copy (maybe using a crappy VCR).
Others available on the web might be from better-sounding sources & may
have been "cleaned up" a little bit.

It has to be some kind of gate-thingy like I described. However, questions
arise: Why was it incorrectly (or sloppily) used? Why is it not noticeable
on the legitimately released songs from the concert (the Max R&B DVD)?

Like Bruce said, all boots seem to come from a video source - the same as
is used on the Max R&B DVD. But, as I said, there seems to be many
variations in quality, depending on the bootlegger's source video.
