Source A: DAT --- Danish Pro Audio 4061 > MPS6030 > Sony PCM-M1 (Oade Mod II) @ 48 kHz
Transfer: Other than sample, currently not mastered as it is still on DAT
Location: Main Floor, Section D, Row 18 (right of soundboard area)
Gen: Master Recording
MP3 Sample: Right click & save
Notes: The weather turned very sour right after the performance, for a few days the power for a certain area of Michigan did not have power due to the storm this evening. If one were to draw a comparison uniting 2 completely independent occurrences, you could potentially link the performance of Tool to the rain. No? Maybe? Just a concert? Probably. Suffering from a slightly buzzed-taper, the initial portion of Stinkfist (approximately 1 minute) is much lower in volume than the remainder of the source. This was due to not really paying attention and also, to note, the numerous security personal that were walking, running & otherwise making their presence known to the evil-doers who would do nothing but cause trouble. I had an aisle seat thus I was attempting to err on the side of caution during this show. Although I will refrain from details, my friend + I (GD) did not pass through security. This was due to an in-house connection that surprisingly played-out extremely well; we walked up one of the side entrances as the doors opened. Never had that happen before. The taping location, seat, whatever you want to call it was crap. It was extremely hard to see the band. During the performance, the sound was not so great. Listening back to the recording, I believe it came out quite well actually, refer to the MP3 sample above, you can decide for yourself. When this is ready it will be shared. In actuality, given the poor location, I am quite pleased with how this source came out & I would recommend it for a good listen. This would be a little more ambient, live-feel than I generally prefer in my taste for recordings. But a nice result regardless. The performance was as inspired, so to speak, as any other show within the span of the shows prior & post Detroit, MI (technically Auburn Hills, MI) so you can take that for what it is worth. We do believe that either MJK's father or Uncle (?) were in attendance - this mystery person & his entourage (family) stood together behind the sound/light crew on an elevated platform for an apparent great view of the show.
Notes: Last 10 seconds of Ænema is missing.
