1st Gen Notes: The 1st Gen rip of this show, straight from the master, is a much better capture of Tool's performance this night than either the VHS or the other -higher- gen rip of this same source and is on one CD rather than 2. The cymbals are crisp, bass thumps and MJK's vocals are very clear where in the higher/unknown gen rip, the sound is sort of muddy. I would not say that this particular rip is just for collector's either as the sound is better than that label. There is no hiss of tape or anything like that. I will say that the crowd, like almost all Lollapalooza crowds when Tool played, seemed to be made up of incredibly annoying people. Loud, screaming, talking during songs. The works. But, that is not the taper's fault. For what it's worth, this recording and rip is much better than I thought it was going to be. Nice...This has one of the most interesting versions of Third Eye that I've ever heard.
Common Version Notes: This version is on 2 CDs. Well, not bad sound. Gets better after a few songs when
the crowd calms down a bit. Complete show, very good for an Ozzfest recording but other than that, not extremely special. This is a complete recording. good find for collector's; took me a few years to come across a source other than the VHS source. Speaking of which, as a comparison to the VHS source, this is much better. Even though the sound is slightly brick-walled & s tiny bit distant sounding, the VHS is much worse. For the equipment used, I would've expected a better recording. But, location is key. All in all, the performance of this show is one not to be missed.
Maynardism: "Ok. So enough of that. This un-rehearsed song goes out to Tim & Tom."
