Tapers Notes:

With an average age of 70, the performances were sometimes uneven, but Neil Young was a stand out.
What was odd was the fact that Neil Young’s stage set up was conceptual on an epic scale with
six large Native American tepees placed the full length of the stage, and a burlap-colored
backdrop labeled with the words “Seeds of Life,” “Organic” and “Indio, CA.” His set began with a
flash of an old Indian chief TV test pattern on the big screens as two women in overalls walked
the stage throwing seeds to the floor. The central event in Young’s set was an explosive
“Down by the River,” clocking in at over 22 minutes.

The true thanks go not to me, but to the taping community behind whose footsteps
I have followed, including those who have perfected the art of stealth recordings,
the makers of the stealthy mikes, cords, adapters, and preamps, and those who
have graciously shared their recording techniques.

I am merely a mike stand with a credit card and driver’s license.

As always, I don’t care what you do with these files, once you download
them–they are yours now, except these files are not for sale, free
trade only. You can thank me by uploading something of a similar genre
or trading with me, so I can.
