Source A: Mini Disc --- Core Sound Binaurals > Sony MZ-R55
Taper: Jeff S.
Gen: 1st from Master
MP3 Sample: Right click & save
Notes: This is one of my favorite recordings from 2002. I don't really know why but the quality just really captures Tool live better than many. There are no brick walls nor any sort of sonic issues; just a real good recording that many attempt to reach but few actually do. The taper stood a little to the left center but ahead of the sound board. The version of Third Eye on this recording is one not to be missed. To top it all off, Tool was playing so good this night that you can literally close your eyes & -boom- you are there. Well, not rally but you know what I mean. Also, this source as well as source B have the same disc times. It is odd but I assure you they are different sources. First time I've ever seen that happen though. Interesting.
Notes: Alt. ending of Stinkfist. Not sure how many versions have this as of Dec. 3, 2002. Right at the end, Maynard sings: "take my hand, take my hand, take my hand". Interesting, he did that for some of the latter fall 2002 shows.
Maynardism: "Phoenix. You don't sound so sure. I assume you here to have fun. Allow us to clarify what kind of fun. Not the WWF Monster Truck Rally kind of fun, not the Limp Bizkit, Kid Rock -- Cool Party kind of fun...because here... we are not going to underestimate your intelligence. The fun we are going to have tonight is the intelligent kind of fun, the compassionate kind of fun, the think-for-yourself, question-authority kind of fun. The kind of fun that drives Republicans nuts -- the dangerous fun. Are you ready?"
Maynardism: "We are recording tonight, so you may want to make some more noise than that."
