Audience taping

Many thanks to the taper

Completely reworked from a master generation source
Normalized-deglitched and retracked


Artwork included-thanks to HB

Excellent taping job, sound and audience
The thing holding this one back-is the setlist
and shortness of the show IMO.
Good versions of Foreign Window and Someone Like You.

NOTES from the original uploader

The internal mics captured the show quite well. These mics were pretty sensitive so the levels
for the most part were good on the recording and nearly maxed. I balanced the channels only
and ran a tiny bit of EQ over the whole file.

My brother had a great trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland. He recorded all 4 shows that Van
performed that week (his idea!!). This show, plus the 18th, 19th and 21st, were all performed
at the Culloden Resort, which is a stunning place. The other three are coming in short time.
Each unique and each taped from different locations. For his first real taping adventure, he did
extremely well. The shows were small, 300 or so, in a dinner ballroom type setting. A beautiful
room. This first gig concentrated on the hits for a party crowd. It is the appetizer for the 3 great
shows to follow. The setlists are diverse and high energy and the last show a real treat IMO. Enjoy!!!

LB-02326 ; 75min+52min ; 2CDR ; Rating: B+

Some track transitions are not entirely seamless
D1 T3: [3:19, 3:21] volume spike; dropout
D1 T4 – D1 T11: volumes lowers a notch, which improves the vocals and overall balance,
so make like Nigel Tufnel, go to eleven and settle back.
Remember, you’re a professional, you’ll rise above it.
D1 T11: [7:38 -7:41] dead runoff

SOUND: The vocals are hot and buzzy for the first few tracks, but for the most part this will more than get you there, especially after the sound smooths out starting with Tangled Up In Blue. Excellent.
