Notes: I like this recording very much. This does have a very live & ambient feeling to it but also appears to be a rather accurate capture of the performance. The cymbals are crisp, drums are level, the bass is not as droning as it is on many 2006 recordings, guitar is rather clean & MJK's vocals are not completely buried in the mix. All in all, definitely worth a listen. I like how the effects of MJK's vocals are exceptionally clear as well. I remember the taper saying that he thought his recording needed a lot of work... now, either he did that work or he was just being his own hardest critic. To my ears, this is a clean & enjoyable listen. There are occasional times when the microphone phasing seems to occur but, alas, that is being rather OCD. That said, it seems that the same guy that seems to follow me to every show I tape found the taper of this source; of particular interest is the discourse between Schism & Right In Two. And there are several times of random people chatting but, believe me, those instances are outweighed by the overall quality of the recording as a whole. Of course things like people yipping at a Tool show are very out of the power of the taper. However, you would of course want to talk when you see Tool in an extremely small theatre for the first time in 4 years! Right?

Thank you very very much for coming down tonight. Despite my being sick and struggling through this I have an option, I can not sing and not travel, but that's just not an option we gotta come play Philly. So I apologize for my sickness, hopefully it wasn't too horrible for you. Wish us...Wish us good health and we'll see you again in the late summer. Thank you.
