Help: Having attained for the 2nd time this source with different source "information", I request your assistance. Thsi source may either be the MD ECM717>R700 or the SPSCD8 version. Please refer to Source B for the description. The ECM717>R700 source & the SPSC>D8 sources have been confused. Please email me with more information for clarification purposes as it is important that this is figured out: email.
Notes: There is a certain amount of microphone placement, fidgeting & phasing throughout this recording; the beginning is the most noticeable. Overall, the sound is rather tinny & one would actually expect a SPSC>D8 source to be quite a bit more fuller, intense, balanced and generally enjoyable than this one is. I am not trying to say this is a bad recording, it is not, however it is not the best source for this performance and other recordings with the same type of set-up have faired much better results. The taper sounds rather far away, maybe towards the top of the venue/concert hall as the sound, if you listen to this with headphones, seems to be coming from 'downward' - if that makes any sense. Overall, this is probably nor a for collectors but for this tour-period, there are better sources of this out there...
