Ozzfest

Source:
Mini Disc --- Sound Professionals Premium Hyper Cardioids > Sony MZ-N1
Taper:   Robert N.
MP3 Sample: Right click & save

Notes: Very nice, clear & crisp Ozzfest recording. For about a year after the performance, this source was relatively rare, this recording seems to have an extremely slight breaking point when the bass hits - but you really have to be listening for it. That said, perhaps a slight brickwall? I think the taper switched MD's right before Schism started. Interesting set list as well. Tool seems to be in top form this night as well...a decent amount of energy & MJK's voice simply hasn't sounded finer than it does at this show... well, it has but this is quite good. I wonder why most or many of the European shows always seem to have very nice sound whereas the US-tapers are still catching up? Maybe its the cardioids... Excellent setlist &, look at that, the order is sort of twisted all around. Wow. Stinkfist after Parabola/Schism? Think this is the only recorded performance with this 'twist'.

Maynardism:
"Karin, the manager of Pizza-Hut in Ancino, CA. Thank you very much for your patience & support. We'll see you again soon. Up next, Ozzy."
