New azimuth adjusted transfer…

The Zoo Amphitheater ( OKC Zoo) was always one of my favorite places to tape because I always knew I could get a great capture there. General Admission with no seats just a sloping hill from the bottom to the top (at least back in the 1980’s). As long as I got there early I’d park myself in front of the PA and away we’d go. The only thing you had to watch for is that the shows always began before the sun went down so you had to be aware of being spotted early on and the occasional drunk.

I shared a version of this show back around 2006 that was not azimuth adjusted and thought it was time to re-visit and transfer correctly.

Great show and great capture on this oneā€¦

Original notes:
Another show from the September leg of this tour – one of my personal all-time favourite Neil shows. Excellent sound quality. Neil is again in fine form both musically and with the banter – even Sugar Mountain comments on the hilarious story about Elvis before Old King. Volumes of the music have been boosted relative to the audience noise. Crowd is a little rowdy, mostly between tracks although you can hear someone stamping along to the music on a few of the tracks.
