Notes: Very accurate capture of the performance by Tool this fine, fine night. For a very long time, this source has been rather uncommon. not rare but uncommon... not sure why. The microphones are clean, clear & rather concise. This recording is as accurate a representation/capture as CSB's are able to offer when recorded from at least some distance away from the stacks. Potentially, front of board on a lower level of the seating. As it is, this is definitely worth a spot in anyone's collection &, in some ways, I would prefer to listen to this source instead of the Neumann source. But each collector is able to decide if that is best for them. If you are a fan of listening to a live, fluid type of recording, this would be good to get but if you are looking for an "in your face" type of recording / front of stack, you may want to check out a different recording. If you ever want to identify your source of this recording & not take my word for which souce you have... take a listen to Disposition at about 3:00 minutes or so into the song... the taper sneezes.
Maynardism: "Thank you very much. Hopefully, hopefully, all of 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."
