Taper: Mason D. (Chunks)
Gen: 1st from Master
MP3 Sample: Right click & save
Notes: Without a doubt, in my opinion, one of the best audience recording of Tool from 2001. Other than someone shouting "Gordy! Gordy! Come here!" & a cough during Pushit, this is definitely the finest recording achievement of a taper. A lot has to do with the equipment used ($) but also has a great deal to do with the taper, he knows what he's doing. We've shared a couple recording stories & I've tried to adapt some of his methods into my own taping routine to get better sound. I think taping is a long progress that is a little bit more interesting when you can discuss methods & whatnot. Getting back to the recording, this is finely mixed, leveled out and has an absolutely clear vocals by MJK. Nothing is drowned out & the crowd is very low. Someday...somewhere...sometime...someone will mistake this for a sound-board recording or something very close to it. Just wait, it will happen. Well, perhaps soundboard is a bit strong but this is revered as a quality capture pf a stellar performance. What an awesome setlist as well...whoah.
Maynardism: "Good evening. It's good to see you all. Especially all of out Hollywood guests. This next song we don't normally do but seeing as how we have so many very important guests from Hollywood, we figured we'd do it for you. Incidentally, can we get you anything else? Cold beer, hot chocolate, pillow on your fucking seat? Anything? Good"
