A very nice sounding SBD from the first night of the Philly shows. This show surfaced in mid '02 when released by Watch Tower, a relative newcomer to the bootleg world. They've been releasing some great Led Zeppelin shows and looks like they did a great job with this release and Echoes On The Stages (T4E rehearsal). The sound is very clear with nice stereo separation and a typical SBD mix. Personally, it's just tad bright for my taste, but who's complaining. Packaging on this boot is nice with a slipcover for the jewel case. WT goes for simplicity on their packaging and works well. There are few instances where the levels fluctuate very slightly on disc 2, otherwise it's almost perfect. I still prefer the mix of "Nuts & Bolts" (Madison '94) SBD over this one and it's the full show. This source is missing the encore.

For trading purposes SHN files were created. SHN lineage: Watch Tower silver CD > CDR > EAC > CDWav > SHN (mkW). This show is originally available on silver pressed CDs and will fit onto (2CDr SHN). Many mucho mucho thanks to Tito C. for providing the discs and high resolution scans of the artworks. PLEASE TRADE FREELY. (JUNE '02)

NOTE: Audio discs derived from the SHN discs will not have the same track times as above since the discs were indexed at different points. The track times above were taken from the copy of Watch Tower's Silver Discs.

Ron's Rush RoIO Review

The second of two Watchtower shows to appear in May 2002 (the first being the 10/18/96 boot). This is a great soundboard recording from a long-hoarded source. Nice to see that this one finally gets to see the light of day. It is a great performance by the band, especially nice for the addition of "Bravado" to the setlist. The sound quality on this one is pretty much flawless, being as this is a nice stereo soundboard recording. The only problem with the overall package is that the encore is missing. There is also an audience source available from this night, but really, why bother?

This is an excellent bootleg. But not perfect. The source is of excellent sound quality and the performance is very good. Unfortunately, it is not complete. However, the folks at Watchtower (the bootleg company that released this) seemed to have messed around with the sound too much. The high frequencies are EQ'd too high. To my ears, it sounds like they may have used "normalization" on this as well. If there are multiple sources of a bootleg, you can count on Watchtower to have released one of the worst. This is a pristine source. Too bad the folks at Watchtower got their hands on it. I know that if someone had the original source they could master it and achieve a better result. The better Rush bootlegs sound BETTER than any officially released live album that I've ever heard from any band. They are that good. So, factoring the monkeying around with the sound quality, I'll have to give this bootleg a 8.5. If someone else re-EQ'd the master, I'm sure this could score a perfect 10 in terms of sound quality.    (2005-01-16)

This is a very good show, but I can't add much more to what the previous reviews stated. However, I would like to comment on the version of Mystic Rythms (one of my favorite songs) on this bootleg and how Geddy sings it. It just sounds really cool the way Geddy sings the choruses. In general, this version is pretty subdued and chilled out, and Geddy sings the choruses in a really subtle, but different way; he drops down an extra note on the word "away" in the line "capture my thoughts, carry them away." Anyways, listen to it to understand what I'm saying exactly. Maybe I'm being overly detailed, but it truly is a version of Mystic Rythms I haven't heard on any other bootleg. Great show. Listen to it!!   (2005-02-10)

Great show. The sound is good, and the guys are on FIRE! For those of you who like the set they played on this tour- this is the perfect show!   (2005-10-02)
