I’ve just burnt the bootleg CD of the 1972 november Oxford concert...
It has a lot of hiss in my humble opinion, much more than the Hull november concert which are perhaps of the same sources (?)
Is it normal ?
Do you only transfer tape when it came from a bootleg or do you make a noise reduction treatment which seem missing in Oxford ?
Thanks for your answer if you have time...

The bootleg cassettes are from different sources, and depending on the generation of the tape, the hiss can be more or less.
When it comes to taking hiss away, I prefer to err on the side of caution, so as not to take away the possibility of any high end that might be lurking there.
You can make a recording a little too closed in and boxy if you are not careful.
