Because the outside temperature soared to 100 degrees (Farenheit) during our session, it was unfortunately necessary to leave the air conditioning system in the hall turned on. At the same time, TELARC's philosophy of reproducing the total frequency spectrum precluded any filtering. The rumble is barely audible and on most playback systems should be all but imperceptible.

During the recording of the digital masters and the subsequent transfer to disc, the entire audio chain was transformerless. The signal was not passed through any processing device (i.e., compression, limiting, or equalization) at any step during production.

Sampling frequency conversion of Telarc's Soundstream digital master to the Compact Disc format was accomplished with the Studer SFC-16 sampling frequency converter. The digital infromation was not subject to any analog intersteps, thus preserving the integrity of the original digital master.

Originally released in 1979.
