Notes: Cu.org did not know this recording existed until some time in 2008. This was recorded from inside the sound booth area by the taper. It almost seems like the microphones were stable throughout the recording as there is no movement, whatsoever, noticeable. I mean, no phasing, no abject crowd noise & nothing to disturb the equipment. According to a good friend of the taper, Jeff was unhappy with the results of this recording as it is a bit distant in comparison with the other high quality Tool recordings he pulled. However, he was quite an apparent perfectionist. This recording is definitely one of the most stable sounding cu.org has yet heard & the quality is at least better than the average recording for this time period. In fact, one could say this would be average for the 10K Days era of 2006, 2007 but definitely higher quality than many in the 2001, 2002 Lateralus-era recordings. The set list on this recording is fantastic & the addition of this riveting performance of Third Eye is worth the price of admission alone. There is a video of this recording that has floated around for simply years; various rips range in quality with one apparently transferred from a 1G VHS tape being the best. However, the audio on that recorded video source is blown.

Can you feel it?


Toledo-edo. If everyone would stand still & stop breathing, it would get cooler. Do me that one favor.

You Lied

We're going to try something different. We're going to look at one of our songs from a different angle. Now sometimes you look at something from a different angle & you see a whole different thing, a whole different taste, a whole different person, by shifting your perspective you can see it in a different way or its like you see it like it's the first time you've seen it - we're going to try that tonight.

Third Eye

You people have made us feel very welcome, thank you very much. Remember, turn off your televisions: READ.
