This was the the 3rd show of the "In The Present" tour. It was the first show of the US leg of the tour. It was obvious that it's early in the tour. It will take a few more shows to get it everything working like a well oiled wheel. The venue - well - all I can say is, thank God I was able to get the "best seat in the house" for my R-09. Well above the floor and the noise of the crowd. Who would think that 1800 seats would be so noisy!! I usually tape with my Core Sound Binaural mics, but tonight was an exception to that rule. Our seats were in an aweful location for taping, so we found a seat upgrade path for the trusty Edirol and we went with it. The new location prevented the CSB's from being used. But, it's amazing what the internal mics can pull off if you have a great location. My rating: I give it an A+ for the recording, and a B+ for the performance. The aborted Mood for a Day was due to Steve starting to to play and then got frustrated and said "Cmon really" as he switched guitars and jumped into Clap. I think he might have been unhappy with the sound or the tuning. They had quite a few sound and tempo problems all night. Let's leave it at the fact that a small venue, made out of wood, tends to be challenging for audio as well. Remember back in 1971 when they played this same venue? Yes opened for Jethro Tull. That show resulted in a riot which ended up causing the National Guard to get called in, and closed the venue to shows for a decade. Visit to read more about that. This recording is "raw" and no equalization was performed, only amplification (3dB) and fades were made with CE Pro. I want to thank Steve K. for accompanying me to the show this night. If it was not for him, this recording would not exist. It's amazing what two former sound guys can do! I also want to thank Winston for offering, on Yesfans, to do artwork for people. Yet another splendidly amazing job! Dank je!
