MP3 Sample: Right click & save

Notes: Wonderful source. Vocals are up-front, guitar is clean, bass is steady & for fans of Danny's drumming... check out the performance of Rosetta Stoned. I understand that there are quite a few different sources for this Hippy-Fest Performance called Bonnaroo floating around. There is a possibility that this performance could very well be the most recorded performance of Tool, ever, due to the fact that the concert experience itself allowed taping (Tool, of course, did not allow taping of there performance but people did it anyway) although few have actually materialized. Yet. Recording : Could very well be one of the better sources for this performance. Of interest, this is, to date as of 08/2007, the only performance in which the legendary, one & only folk-artist-with-political-message (the incredible) Night Watchmen performed on Lateralus... err... I mean Tom Morello; the Night Watchmen is his other persona. The solo is, IMO, so-so as it really had the chance to go into random directions but instead was pretty much a text book version. Ah well. Now, although this recording is the last time Tool performed Ænema for this leg of the US Tour, I am not sure it would have been worth it to be out in the sun for days on end with a dred-headed chick named Summer having a seizure from bad LSD & lack of water in front of you as you try to tape the performance.
