(1st,2nd & 5th source merge)

This one sounds more like a stereo recording than a merge, though at times you are reminded
of the fact you're listening to a merge, nonetheless it's one of the best merges I've heard:)

Up until "Freedom" I mixed 3 sources: Source 1 left, Source 5 right and Source 2 in the middle.
Alot of pitch corrections were done on source 1 and 5. No EQ or filters were applied.

Since Source 5 ends with "Freedom" the rest of the concert consists of the two remaining sources:
Source 1 left and Source 2 on the right.

I remixed the 'pre-Red House' part to omit source 2, leaving
Source 1 and 2 left and right respectively.
But Source 2 is still used to fill gaps.

I am tempted to re-do "Hey Baby" since some phasing occurs at the very beginning.
This occurs a few times throughout the merge, though very briefly.
Also source 5 begins to stutter violently during "Hey Baby" followed by a gap then resumes
and continues to stutter well into "AATW". I chose to cover it up with source 2 and by keeping source 5 lower in the mix until the
'stutter-part' was over.
(this isn't the case with the 1 and 5 mix)

Source 2 is the most complete source and fills gaps from the original tapes left and right
so you'll hear some panning going on a few times.

My guess is Jimi played in Eb that evening tuning down only 1/2 step. His voice sounds like at IOW. When I tried E tuning suddenly Jimi sounded like 1967. That was even worse.
Since I wasn't there I'm not 100% sure.
