Comments from the original uploader: Here is the Bela set from the 3rd at Mountain Jam!This set includes the tail end of the Mtn. Jam’s 6-2,3-11 wind storm,very tough on the eyes if you happened by one of the dust clouds blowing by.Some loss of music during “Life In A Elevator” due to power failure.Very little wind gusts picked up in this recording although music has some level fluctuations most noteably in the first few songs.As always ENJOY!

Notes from the taper:

1)Quality IS About A For The Most Part.We Set Up On The Lawn And Then Were Told To Go Back Farther On The Lawn,But The Recording Still Came Out Really Good.

2)A Far As I can Tell,I Was The Only Taper There That Night,Or at Least I didn’t See Anyone Else With A Mic Stand,So This Could Very Well Be the Only Audience Source In Circulation.This Was The Same As Last Time I taped Him In The Same Venue 8/28/07.I Believe I Was The only Taper That Night Also.If Anyone Wants Me To Upload The Dat Master Of That Show,Leave A Note In The Comments Section.

3)My Friend Grabbed The Printed Setlist From The Stage At The End Of The Show,So Hopefully This Setlist Is Correct.

Encore Break:

* – The noise that begins here is due to the singing of the cicada bugs in the trees nearby. The cicadas began to sing roughly 45 minutes before the torrential downpour started (see below), approximately also 45 minutes after the start of the show.

** – When the rain began in earnest, I slid a yard-trash bag over the mics. Once the tapers in front of me offered me an umbrella (thanks Frank & Charles), I removed the bags. This lasted roughly 90 seconds of Bela’s banjo solo. The plastic killed the sound quality, although the sound of plastic bags dragging across windscreens and mics is truely unique. During this time, the PA was also draped with tarps by the stage crew. I removed the unusable audio section,and crossfaded back over the solo itself, once the bags had been removed, leaving a relatively seamless transition.

*** – The noise around 24:31 of track 18 (right track only) is the sound of the FOH tent getting
setup to combat the rain, and hitting my mic stand in the process.
