There will be, and are, other recordings of this show. Saw one guy off to the side in the front row taping, that should be a nice up front sounding capture. Saw a guy recording from the balcony, and there is one from the center but further back already on etree. Don’t know what will be the best, but I do know none will have the absolute dead center recording spot this one does. I was in row H, with my head right even with the bass drum, as centered as centered could be. The recording sounds a bit more distant than I would like/expect from such a close proximity to the stage. They were running a bit of a stereo mix, or I was getting that effect from the stage monitors, and I believe Jecklin Head captured that pretty well. I gotta say, the sound was lacking a bit of something, for one Nels’ guitar was low and Jeff’s vocals were a bit buried at first. Things improved as the show progressed. Nice show. Cool light show, which probably won’t come across on the audio tape. Tracks done on the fly so they are not perfect. The only thing missing is the encore applause. Enjoy. If you were there you understand the title.
