Notes: Technically speaking, this is one hell of a superior recording. Excellent microphones like these, it is hard to get a bad recording. There is a lot of annoying chatter by the taper that happens more often than one would actually hope for in a recording this sweet. Guitars rock, bass hits, drums kick & the vocals soar - excellent reproduction of this Tool performance... until, someone spills beer & starts talking. Please note that I am being a little bit harsher on this recording simply because the taper spent something like $3K for these mics - he should have a pretty clear idea of what not to do while taping. Ah well, maybe he just didn't care, which is cool as well I suppose. As it is, this has been circulating on the 'no trade/no list' lists that people have floating around for about 2.5 years, as of mid 2004. I am not sure why this as so. All in all, definitely a great capture of a standard 2001 setlist and performance that is most likely in your collection. To be honest, this is one of those shows that pretty much every collector has. I have been offered this at least 25 times; this is out there. And, rightfully so. It is a sweet recording. However, I have yet to actually understand the rationale about why this was rare in the first place...
