Heresy Alert

Avert your eyes if you are sensitive to this sort of thing.

Great tapes, but 2/2/80 set I does nothing for me.


Further hypothesis: it exhibits the "Cornell Effect", whereby great sounding tape produces systematic and massive overestimation of performance quality.


  1. I find the opposite effect can also occur, whereby a great sounding tape produces systematic and massive boredom in comparison with a more lively audience or matrix source tape.

  2. Totally true. 2/4/81 there's a piece of guitar feedback that I love, having learned it from a very raggedy tape.

    I noticed this on listens to different versions of 3/2/85, as well.
