Location: Section 105, Row A, Seat 18 (Right side off of Justin's corner of the stage... My ticket had Row B Seat 20, but the show started and no one was in the seats in front of me, so I moved down)

MP3 Sample: Right click & save

Notes - Taper: Well I almost died making it to this show, but in the end it was worth the long, dangerous drive. (A word of advice, there is a drink called "Redline" being sold today. It's not an energy drink, like I thought. It's a dietary supplement that raises your heartrate and causes you to simultaneously sweat and shiver. I made the mistake of having one before getting on the road, and felt sick for the next 12 hours. That was the drive up to Southaven, the entire show, and about half of my drive back afterwards.) Anyway, a big thanks to Geordy for my seat upgrade at this show. The tape wouldn't have come out as well if not for the prime location. This was also one of the last shows to feature AEnema in the set.
Notes - Galen: Hot damn this is one smoking tape! For those that are accustomed to the low vocals, particularly as on Rosetta Stoned, this source proves that location, location, luck & a little more luck can make a lot of difference. Although I'm not entirely sure if uber-live-but-yet-front-of-stack-sounding is a real phrase or even quasi-correct grammar but it is what it is. The nuances of the performance, calculated & repeated or not, are picked up very nicely. Almost surprisingly well. Now, I detect & it may be my old age and/or some other issue but when there is a sound out of the PA louder then others (and I mean massively louder) sometimes the audio almost seems to only have so much leeway. I don't know, maybe I'm just being a snobby DAT taper that is surprised about how damn good some of these recordings really are. Nice one.
