Hi again!
I noticed that you people are really helpful in determining lossiness vs losslessness, so here's another recording that is controversial: Black Sabbath live in Pittsburgh in 1978. It is Pre-FM or SBD. Actually I have two versions of this recording - one claims to be a clone of the master tape, one comes without any lineage info. Both look a bit different, So here I uploading spectral & frequency pics of both, the 'Master clone' and the 'Different version'. Any opinions are welcome!
Thanks and best,
Linda

Thanks for the response! I assume that "post-FM" means: lossy-sourced?

Considering the year this was recorded it's not lossy based. More than likely the equipment used at the time.
