Source B:
Hi-Mini Disc --- Core Sound Binaurals > Core Sound Battery Box > Sony MZ-M100
Transfer: Unknown transfer > WAV > FLAC
Taper: J. Shovlain (foosanyone@yahoo.com)
MP3 Sample: Right click & save

Notes (from someone): There is a disc switch right before Lateralus, so a few seconds are missing. Very nice recording for being the taper's first attempt.
Notes: Well if it is true that this source is the first audio recording by the taper then he should be very, very pleased with it. And rightly so. Although there is a decent layer of crowd noise & the basic limitations of the mics are evident (if one were a live recording snob that is) the overall result is a pretty good capture. Unlike many sources the vocals are very high up in the mix, a nice change. It is unclear to me which source is the better capture (between A + B). The clarity of source A is pleasant whereas the loudness of the vocals on this source is a welcome change. That said, there seems to be some weird phasing throughout this source meaning when the bass gets really deep it eats away at a mid level frequency or vice versa. Just my two cents.
