Great recording. MD switch done in the encorebreak, so no music is lost. After the show I used my old analog soundcard to put this show to cdr. I traded it with about 15 people in total. One of them (unknown, but strong feeling who did it) seems to have brought it straight to the RattleSnake label and got it pressed under the name “Dont Waste Your Words” (http://www.bobsboots.com/CDs/cd-d49.html), a bootleg with additional songs from the Brussels gig (which is not my recording). Two weeks after the gig one trader tells me he listened to this bootleg and its seemed to be the same recording. I have not been able to check myself, but he was very sure. But, there is a hiss on the original cdrs (bootleg now) and a small error (can’t remember where), due to the crappy soundcard. 🙂 This version is clear and never put online untill now.

  1. Holy heck – this looks major! I have a low-bitrate MP3 version of this show, and it’s fantastic. So the FLAC will be an upgrade, plus it sounds like the original files for this posting are better than what I had in low bitrate so – yahoo!!

    Thanks Mat for this one.

  2. Do I need another Bob show???

    I guess I do! It sounds like the SQ is really something, especially if
    its an improvement on the Rattlesnake issue, since they tend to use
    only top notch sources (even if they do have a tendency to over use
    the mastering tools).

    Nice to see 4th Time Around in the setlist too.

    Many thanks Mat !!

  3. Is there some way to know or search to see what is here like for an artist? I wanted to know if herein is contained Dylan from 7.2.62 awesome as good as it gets recording – finjan club?
