Notes - by Taper: Must be down-sampled to 44.1 kHz to burn to CD. Please do not re-distribute in a lossy format. A bit phase-y during the first 2 songs due to the rowdy crowd...was able to get in a better location during Forty Six & 2.
Notes - by: Galen: Fantastic capture of Tool debuting material from 10,000 Days & Headlining the Coachella Festival. Vocals, bass, guitar, cymbals/drums are crystal clear with low crowd noise throughout. This is arguably the best overall source for this performance; the enjoyable listening experience is evidence of that. There are a few instances of crowd movement/phasing but those are merely fleeting detractors of an otherwise solid & enjoyable recording. Tool performed well if yet a bit rusty in certain areas; which this recording accurately picks up, notably on Sober. Ouch. All in all, my current favorite of the audience Coachella recordings available.

'Welcome to our first show in many years. We want to keep it down a notch, make it all small and intimate, invite a few friends. Welcome. But you, dude, need to put your fucking clothes back on, you're buming me out. Got lost on the way to Burning Man.'


Forty-Six & 2

'New album comes out tomorrow at midnight. I know you fuckers all downloaded already. Do me a favour, I'm trying to buy... this gold nugget shaped like a piece of popcorn for a ring. So, I need you to buy a bunch of records so I can afford that. Big ol' gold nugget. Like 4 of them. Then when I hit you in the face for taking my photo it will look like somebody had hit with a bowl of popcorn. Help me out will ya? I'm destitute.'

'I hope you all enjoyed yourselves. I hope you all got a chance to go in the VIP tent. Of course you all did, right? It's fucken LA, everybody's a fucken VIP. Can I get a witness?'
