Notes: Surprisingly, this recording was torrented 14 years after the fact, 2008 for those not in school, and was in and of itself, a brand new source that no one had heard of. Kind of out of the blue; can show you that you never really know what is or what is not out there. Now, this recording is definitely a treat to listen too, if you have heard everything else, but it is not w/o it's flaws.. but sometimes the flaws are the strengths? Think about it. The recording is very heavy on the left side; one could argue that is because the microphone used to record this show looks a little bit like Jar Jar Binks - picture a "T" w/the L+R at each side of the tee.  That's the bad, the good pertains to the fact that it seems like the taper simply set the microphone + recorder in one place & just did not touch it. That said, there is a little bit of crowd noise but it's not that big of a deal to be honest, it is distant. I suppose that if someone were really industrious they would correct the volume difference between the L+R channels but then again that would corrupt the actual recording. If anyone were to correct it, probably should have been the taper. Speaking of that, thanks - whoever you are. On a more technical note; I do believe/am sure that the tape speed is ever so slightly off-kilter s-l-o-w as Tool are playing just a wee bit slow. If this were Amsterdam instead of Lyon I would understand but, alas, that is not the case. For those paying attention, the extra ~3 minutes from this source to source a pertain to crowd noise sans performance of the band.
