"The original master of this fine recording was produced by our mastering engineer, Bob Katz, at 24 bit/96 kHz. He upsampled from our single sample rate mixes in order to produce the purest and best sound, because mastering at the higher sample rate reduces distortion and produces a more open, warmer, clearer sound quality. So you will not see any information above 24 kHz in this file. Nevertheless, this 96/24 master-quality recording is the original master --- it is three generations ahead of the 1644 CD master. It has great warmth, depth and resolution, so our concert is best reproduced at 96 kHz. In addition these are high resolution wav files, not the data-compressed versions that you get on Spotify. You get real value from this file."
