Notes: A bit of trivia... what is the only performance of the pre-seminal tour that featured an alternate setlist than the other 3 of the 4 dates? Answer: Atlanta, GA 05.15.01. I would be willing to bet that if you got that one - you should take a listen to Tool's version of Stranglehold because you are a true fan. Pretty decent recording of the last show of the pre-seminal tour. For those that do not know, this was the fourth time Tool had played publicly since 1999 at the Coachella festival. Although the equipment used is rather good, the taper was a fair distance away from the stacks and CSBs have a tendency to be a little quiet when listened to at a far distance. Clarity wise, some may think it is pretty good, which it is, but I detect a little bit of muddiness. If the taper had adjusted his levels -up- just a little bit, the effect could've been just a little bit better. But that is my main criticism. Overall, this is a fine listen. I do feel that the other source I have is actually a bit better, audio-wise though.

"Wanna hear some good news? Sometime later this year, there's gonna be a full, feature length Mr. Show movie. Its the story of Ronnie Dobbs called 'Run, Ronnie Run' You heard it here first. Those retarded gentlemen that introduced the show are part of that. Don't hold that against them"
