Notes: First things first, this is probably the most un-professional of my Tool recordings. A fair amount of crowd noise & talking combined with a less than desirable taping location (middle of lawn) = a 'decent enough recording'. Really, the people who most get a kick out of this are myself & the friends who I gave it to who were standing around me. At one time, you can hear one of my friends hand me a Jibber & say "hurry up & hit it before it goes out" --- yeah, very professional. Plus, for those that care, my friends & I were passing buddha throughout the show - non-stop. If you know what I mean. Although definitely listenable, it's really best left for collector's. But, this was one of the most fun I've had at a concert. Nothing like a little road trip. Drove from East Lansing, MI, USA about 6 hours to just north of Indianapolis, IN with a couple buddies. Stories, stories, stories...certainly not fit fort his forum. Many, many spiffs were roached during the show; being on the lawn, who cared? Sound is slightly distant and a fair amount of crowd noise. Also is the post-show which is actually kind of funny; not music but the 40 minutes of just dazed confusion after an intense show. Standing outside the gates waiting for a friend & chattering included seeing a 15-16 year old girl making out with a guy in his 30's (moustache, mullet & probably drives a Chevy camaro), a guy yelling 'stiffler --- hey, Nick Stifler' for about 20 minutes before he sulked away (lost his ride home), a young man pass out & have a seizure as security whisked him & his petrified girl away, a girl who I went to University with Pregnant & a few other oddities including a guy I know reporting that he saw "Maynard's penis" during the gig. The post-show still makes me laugh...
There are many copies of this source out there as some people converted this show to MP3 and/or mislabeled the source information. Although I would not recommend this version over others, I would think that the complete-collector would find interest in this recording -at least the source information will be correct ;o) Those versions were traded out to a total of 5 traders, originally. All versions after the initial 5 have no errors that I am aware of; they are mastered smoothly but who knows where they ended up now after all this time.
