The Source:

We were able to convert a 1/4" digital tape that we found in a garage in NJ
 to digital format...  Allowing for the advanced age (circa 1967) and the
deplorable storage conditions, we got two good passes at the tape before it
became unplayable...  We didn't mess too much with  source sound (we  tried
to take out most of the hiss) because we didn't want to "over color" the
sound that Otis and his band mates produced...
