06-21-1983 – Complete Show
This is an audio and video remaster of:
Merriweather Post Pavilion
Replaced soundtrack with Scott clugston’s 16-bit FLAC SBD master (charlie miller transfer) (lineage below)
1080p, spatial and temporal denoising, way too much work for this video but hey, might as well try.
This still looks pretty terrible but 1983 videos aren’t exactly flying out of the sky, so we strap the best audio we can find onto it, polish the turd as hard as possible, and have a real good time.
As noted in lineage, there was an attempt to stabilize this video before we ever touched it. Although i can get rid of SOME of the crawling in the background, it’s all heavily baked in, so enjoy it for what it is. it’s not perfect, never will be, but it’s good enough video to compliment the audio 🙂
All postproduction work by Josh Davis and Christopher Hazard
