Notes: This is a wonderful recording. It seems to me that it was recorded Front of Board; kind of has that sound: crisp instruments meshed with a little bit of crowd. Oftentimes, this creates a complimentary & satisfactory experience for the ears. Like an eargasm. Or ear candy. Did I mention in the other review for this that the scream on Undertow (at the end, you know) is just awesome. The sound is balanced throughout although there are a few instances of sound fluctuation; like the taper turned his head or someone brushed against him as they traversed the crowd. Take a listen to the sample; not bad eh! This site has had this recording for a number of years and although it was ascertained from one trader there are other traders that are 'dealing', so to speak, this recording. Even though they were not supposed to on condition of X, Y or Z but whatever. Be persistent; perhaps you may find that someone you know has it. And if you do, you will hear a performance that may have a couple technical flaws but is clearly one of the most interesting (i.e.: with debuts!) but definitely not the worst night of the tour.
