Source B: Mini Disc --- Sony ECM-MS908 > Sony MZ R-700
Taper: Sean <Omar Osatch>
Gen: 1st from Master
MP3 Sample: Right click & save
Notes: Ok. Honestly, this recording should not, I repeat not, sound as good as it does. What, with the $85 Sony mics & a basic MD recorder, I was expecting nothing which was -nearly- as good as Omar pulled off. It is my opinion that, for the average listener, you pit this up against a taper with equipment twice as much & most people could not tell the difference. I do not say this lightly. It should be noted that there are a few people standing by the taper that make a bit of noise every now & then. But, such is a live recording, only adds to the interest. Oh, and I could be wrong, but on disc #1, track #7 @ 11:18, I swear to God I hear my name being spoken. I know these guys, so, maybe it is, maybe not. Anyway, this is a very nice capture of Tool live. Something to be proud about.
Maynardism: "Good evening Long Beach. We assume you've come to have fun. We assume you've come to have fun. If you don't mind, we're gonna specify what kind of fun we've had in mind. Not the, uh, not the WWF, MTV dry-hump, dipshits gone wild on crack kind of fun. And of course not the dick-Durst, Kid-cock, big-time Monster Truck Rally kind of fun either. Because we aren't going to underestimate your intelligence. The kind of fun we have in mind tonight is intelligent fun, compassionate fun, psychedelic & introspective fun. Hopefully,
kind of fun that leaves you inspired, not just on a physical/sensual level but also on a mental/spiritual & emotional level. The kind of fun that scares the fuck out of religious fanatics & Republicans. In other words, dangerous fun. So, are you ready for that? Ok...where were we?"
Maynardism: "Thank you Meshuggah - thank you very much. It's been a wonderful tour, lucky to have you. We'd like to thank our crew - couldn't have done it without you, thank you very much. Tomorrow, however, you're all fired. Take a vacation. Thank you, all for sharing this moment with us. We hope that something you've witnessed here tonight will leave you inspired on some level, or serve as a catalyst that little extra spark that you needed to realize & pursue your dreams. To follow your bills. To take risks. To remember what it means to communicate with each other to make big things happen. We have a challenge for you. We challenge you to make us obsolete, we embrace the idea of becoming dinosaurs & a new wave of inspired new musicians & a new generation. Something that we just turn our heads and make us proud. Make daddy proud, that's our challenge from us. Thank you very much."
