MP3 in lineage?

Hey, here's a show, I know it was rec'd on MD, but i'm terribly worried about a mp3-gen somewhere in the lineage...

freq is cut off at 16khz, and it sounds quite lossy. but it's got those square blocks at the top which afaik is typical for minidisc...

also: i converted one of the flacs to wav, and then converted the wav to mp3 160 kbps, and compared the wav to the mp3, and found basically NO difference - is that a reliable method for determining this? well - frequency analysis of the two show more loss after my mp3 compression than before... i include screens of a 2 second spectral view of both the orig. wav and the mp3.

so, see attachments, and please help me figure this out!
