in the midrange. I also noticed a very short dropout early in track 5 (after the end of
the guitar solo and immediately before It's All Too Much itself - it didn't really
interfere with the music anyway) so I moved the track split to that point and deleted the
silence. And I put a very short fade on the last second of the audience noise at then end".
