The Dragon Snake > ALAC > Remaster (Ozone5 and various plugins) > FIX SBEs (xACT) > FLAC > You

The Dragon Snake CDs sounded a little off compared to the next night (Texas Hurricane), so I increased the speed of them for this remaster by less one percent and changed the pitch slightly (8.6 cents.) I also removed the material that overlapped between discs.
