Notes - Taper: A tall, large man was in the seat directly to the left of me, which means he was in front of me in relation to the stage. So during Stinkfist, he partially blocked my sightline to the stacks resulting in some muffling of the sound during the song. After that song, I asked him to step back which gave me a clearer view. Though I still spent the entire night leaning right & balancing on one foot trying to get the clearest sightline to the stacks. It was worth it though, it came out pretty good!
Notes - Galen: I clearly recall the first time I heard a sample of this recording; maybe 2 hours post-show. I think now what I thought then - that this is a very, very clear, sharp & concise recording that has a very ambient feel to it while capturing the intricacies of the performance. It does not have a very 'loud' feeling to it & you can detect a hint of reverberation in the venue but this does not detract from the recording itself. It is surprising how location & other subtleties such as recording formats can be drastically different when using the same microphones... my DPA4061>M1(oade) source has a lot of bass but then again the position was different. The CSB>MT 24/96 source also has a different sound as well. Out of the sources, I suppose this would be considered the most ambient. At least that I have heard. There are occasional instances of a little phasing (attributed to the person in front of the taper) but you would only know it if you were looking for it. Definitely a nice recording.
