Notes - by Taper: Maynard was hit by a bottle about 1/2 way through The Pot and left the stage. He came back out at the beginning of Forty Six & 2 to taunt the crowd during the song without singing. The band continued without him and he finally began singing again for the final verse / climax of Forty Six & 2. There were lots of pissed off fans. Listen :-) My seeds from the last 3 nights have been a bit lacking on the rock side... Since I'm trying to give a little something to everyone...for night 4 of this holiday stretch, here's Tool. The story of sitting in the parking lot ticketless until 60 min before show time when a drunken scalper walked up to me and gave me this great taping seat for free is indeed a great one, but I don't have the time or patience right now to tell it. Besides, you just got the long and the short of it :-) Thanks to Steve and Bubba for witnessing such awesomeness which they will surely explain as just being the way I roll. Happy Holidays Everyone! PLEASE DO NOT NAME THIS SHOW, OR TORRENT IT ELSEWHERE "NAMED" AS SOMETHING ELSE. Also, obviously, please NEVER sell this recording, ONLY trade or share freely ! PLEASE do NOT encode to lossy formats (mp3, aac, etc) for reasons OTHER than personal use. I would rather not see this sendspaced, ysi'ed , etc all over the web in 17 different formats. Please preserve the quality as it has been presented to you. One last thing...just for the Tool crowd: Fuck you assholes who seed recordings without taper's permission/against their wishes ! You are the reason why great recordings like this are withheld for so long...
Notes - by Galen: This is a good recording but not a great recording as the taper explains above although it is a decent enough capture. Unlike an alternative source, the vocals are actually quite high in the recording - those that are familiar with this leg of the tour know that this was a rare occurrence. The audience was rather annoying when MJK was MIA but yes this is to be expected; quite a bit of crowd noise. Man, I honestly tried my best to come up with something quasi-interesting to say about this source but upon reading the notes by the taper and the almost abrasive 'notes'; I just kind of got turned off of this source. And it's too bad I let my own thoughts/feelings/observations based on someone writing a text file influence my perception of the recording. But I am.
Maynardism: "Today's my friend Eddie's birthday...so at the count of three, I want everyone to yell...'Eddie, you're a fucking idiot'! It's not really his birthday."
