Notes - by: Galen: I thoroughly enjoy this source even though it was not taped in PCM mode. Some would say you can hear some amount of compression but it sounds quite crisp, clean & clear to my ears. The vocals, unlike many 2006 recordings of this leg, are actually up-front in the mix & rather in your face. The crowd around the taper is respectful & almost calm? There are a few instances of microphone phasing but that is a rather minimal perception. When posed with the question, of the two known sources as of 08/2006 to be floating around what is the better... the answer will be up to the collector. Each offers a rather unique view into the band. I will say that the bass has more of a drone than a thump on this source but then again that is what oftentimes occurs when one uses this type of microphone. Is this source worth attaining as it is enjoyable, a smooth listen, clear, concise & all-around fun? The answer is yes. Good job to the taper.
