^Most all of the concerts I recorded were recorded in mono with this type of cassette deck. Of all the concerts I recorded just two of them I plugged in an omnipresent mic into the cassette deck, for John Paul Jones at the Web Theater in Phoenix and Rush for the Vapor Trails tour in Phoenix. As far as I know there are no recordings of those concerts in circulation. Actually a friend who transferred my John Paul Jones recording to his computer said it was just on the line of sounding professional, his final opinion was that it sounded close enough and that I should go ahead and post it. Is it even worth it to try and put them up on YouTube I wonder? I've listened to a lot of old audience recordings on YouTube and know mine sound better than some of them. Some of these concerts are getting old and it's giving me a hoarding complex.

Actually I've started working on my John Paul Jones stereo cassette recording a couple of weeks ago but have become frustrated because the process has not been very seamless, it just seems like files are piling up and it's easy to misplace them. I took a break from it and will resume later, maybe this weekend.

As I mentioned most of my recordings were made in mono, so I will use Audacity to enhance them into stereo and I will apply some of Audacity's other enhancements to try to fix em' up. I don't want to have to put in a lot of money into this but if anyone knows of audio software that may be very helpful and not too expensive or hard to use either please let me know. I think audacity should be good though...
