Notes - Taper: Vicarious is incomplete by about 5 seconds, which is about how much time it takes the MT to start a new file. At did exactly 1:55:44.255 into the show a new file was started but it only consisted of 2 min of crowd noise as I left the venue so I didn't see any real need to tack it on. Note to future MT tapers...if you do 24/48, you might want to manually create a new track during the extended break before WFM. Had a guy twice my size to my right, between myself and the stage. He stood up during the first couple songs, blocking my view of the stage/speakers. Sound is a little muffled due to that. From Schism on he sat down for most of the rest of the show, which sounds amazing since I had no other obstructions between myself and the speakers. From Schism on particularly, this is one of those recordings that sounds better than the show actually did. I know a lot of people have been waiting to hear a decent recording of Pushit, if I might brag a little, I'd say this one will make you happy. Got a surprisingly good recording of WFM/10K Days as well. One small dropout during both Jambi and Schism....at least the recording isn't riddled with them this time. -To the drunk? jackass in Sec 111, Row C, Seat 4....how did the second half of the show sound from the parking lot?! -To the gentleman in Sec 111, Row A, Seat 4....I hope you see this and burn a copy of it for your friend` in seat 3. It's hard to take in a show like this with someone like you yapping to them the whole time. Luckily, the music usually drowns you out on the recording :P
Notes - Galen: Yes, this recording kicks serious ass. Yes, the taper torrented this right after the show & yes, that rash is not from poison ivy but your woman named Ivy. This is probably one of the more passionate versions of Pushit that I, for one, have heard in years. The levels were spot-on for this source, the taper definitely knew what he was doing & even though this is not a FOS type of recording it does capture the ambience of the performance very nicely. It should be noted that I am a fan of the way DPA mics sound even though they are often a bit bassy they are still capable of delivering some excellent recordings like this one. Nicely done.
