Notes - Taper's Friend: Jon sent this to me to upload here on DIME. Please big thanks to Jon! (Leave a comment for him!!!) He was busted right after 46&2. Asked what the they were for (the mics) and he said he would turn it off. The security guard left and came back with 6 event staff and they basically said, delete it and you can stay or leave and you can keep it. So he left. Great tape. I am a casual Tool fan and this is a sick tape. Thank you Jon!!!
Notes: Ah , yeah, this is one of the sickest AUD recordings out there, tis a shame it is incomplete but even as it stands it is definitely arms reach above most recordings from this time period. Stunningly clear, particularly when you listen to the beginning of Third Eye, it's like you could hear a pin drop. I'm somewhat amazed of the overall quality of this; vocals are crystal clear in the mix, the subtle cymbal tap keeping rhythm, the chugging riff of Adam's guitar and the steady bass slaps are demonstration of a band absolutely entrancing the audience with their ability. The recording itself, gotta say, the microphones really pull off a sweet, warm and soulful recording; something I had personally written off the R09 as being unable to do. Appears I was wrong. Highly recommended, even in it's incomplete state.
