Tour with King Crimson
Source A: DAT --- Neumann KM140s > Aerco > SBM-1 > Sony TCD-D8
Taper: Bill Shaw
Gen: 2nd from Master
MP3 Sample: Right click & save
Notes: Good show, all around. For being a supposed Neumann source, it doesn't sound up to that caliber but then again, the crowd occasionally was loud around the taper. But, on the other hand, this source generally made a better recording than many other sources as the taper did not seem to be exceedingly close to the stacks but nonetheless pulled off a real tight recording. Performance is a bit rehearsed but not yet tiresome & full of energy as the band is very, very tight. After spending the Spring & Summer on tour, they had it done pat. This recording itself, though, is a real nice capture of what it is to be at a Tool show. Not much more you can ask for, is there? There are different audio rips of this show as the taper traded out DAT clones & other people have then put those clones to CD. The one listed below is reported to be ripped by the taper.
Maynardism: "Thank you very much. Hopefully, hopefully, you were wise enough to show up early to see King Crimson. It's a rare chance, a very rare chance. A meeting of those two worlds is very important so you can see where it came from and where it's going. But I know it's cool. They were the bricklayers. They were the ones who remained anonymous & fought the good fight. And, uh, we'd like to thank them for coming out with us."
