Tour with King Crimson

Source A:
DAT --- Core Sound High-End Binaural/Danish Pro Audio 4061 > Sony PCM-M1
MP3 Sample: Right click & save

Notes: Good sound but seems to lack a little bit of crispness. Most likely, the taper was a distance away from the speakers as, had he been closer, I have a feeling the presence would be much more in-your-face rather than sort of over-your-head. In essence,  a little distant sounding. The volume is sporadically turned up & then back down - like the taper was checking levels. Performance wise, really, what more could you want? It's Tool. I understand that there are some people who may think I am insane by not thinking a recording with this source information is just amazing but, hey, it is not just the microphones it is the placement. Different people have different taste I suppose. Very clear recording as it is a good capture of what it is Tool sounds like live. However, their is a bit of crowd noise that can sometimes over-power the recording. Not terrible but definitely noticeable if you are annoyed by such things, as I am. I do not think that the noise was the taper's fault or anything like that, of course. Maynard's vocals are clear and the drums kick-it. The bass can sort of hit just a little bit harder than some would prefer. All in all, a very worthwhile addition to a collection and a very good performance by The Scott Hill Clown Band. The two times listed below represent two different transfers of this recording floating around.

Maynardism: "Every now & then, we have to ask ourselves why it is we do this. It's never really more apparent or appropriate as it is when we are in LA. We get so convoluted. Everyone's got their fucking hand out, their all a bunch of liars & thieves & acquaintances. We just have to remind ourselves that it's about this - what we are feeling right now, that's what it's about. Fuck 'em."
