Taper's Info

Equipment List: Core Sound Binaurals > Core Sound bass roll off at 120Hz > Aiwa MD. Recorded from Section 101 Row D    (2002-12-16)

Ron's Rush RoIO Review
   (Audio - 8)

Even those of us well under the roof of the pavilion got soaked. Given that the taper was in Section 101, Row D ? four rows directly in front of me, right in front of Geddy's side of the PA ? I know he got soaked as well. But really, the wind seems to have little effect on the overall recording. The recording was made with a pair of Core Sound Binaural mics with a bass roll off at 120Hz into an Aiwa MD. The sound is very good, very well-mixed. I rate this boot below the best from this tour, such as Raleigh and Hartford, but it is still a great recording. And this was an absolutely phenomenal performance, easily the best Rush concert I have yet seen. The band was in fine form, very relaxed, and just seemed to be having a lot of fun. The new songs really start to come into their own at this point. Also, the rant Alex delivered ? a mix of "The Witch is Dead" and a call-and-repeat jazz scat ? is easily the funniest of the tour. This bootleg is not yet getting a whole lot of attention, but I predict it will become a sleeper hit as it starts to circulate. first 5 or 10 seconds are cut. This show is a perfectly worthy addition to any collection, but it would not be my first choice in acquiring shows from this tour.    (2002-12-16)

Another great show from the VT tour. It's amazing how many great shows are coming out from the tour, and how quickly there are being released/spread. The sound is very nice on this boot, at some points the lows are a little high, but nothing overbearing. It was recorded with a Mini Disc. The Intro to 1LV is missing from this one which is a little disappointing considering it is on 3 discs as opposed to 2, and the first few seconds of the song are also missing. Alex's rant on La Villa is pretty entertaining on this one. He starts off mumbling about witches? and then goes into a shpeel of play this on bass, play this on drums, and then play this on guitar which is a awful sound! But I like Jazz!    (2002-12-16)

I attended this show so it was the first boot I tried to get from the VT tour. I'm not impressed, but it's the only known boot of this show so I guess I can't complain. The overall sound is rather good, but there is a constant, high pitch static during the ENTIRE show; I think the recorder's levels were too high (hot mic). There was a huge rain storm at the beginning of the show, forcing many people on the lawn to leave after the second song, but it's funny to hear Geddy say: "Hope you aren't getting too wet, sorry we brought the rain." Crowd noise isn't bad at all. Any other boots of this show?!    (2002-12-16)

I was 3rd row in Orch 1, right in front of Geddy. This was by far the best audience I've ever been a part of in any of the DC area venues for a Rush show. You can't necessarily tell from where the recording was made but from the 3rd row w/all the screaming Rush fans screaming forward- the most intense of these living in the Orch sections w/me- there are times in this outdoor show where 20,000 maniacal Rush fans actually out-shout a heavily amplified Geddy! You can hear thunder during the first few songs, and yes, the rain was coming in sideways from stage left and dousing all three members of the power trio- as well as the stage and the audience. While the audience is not completely involved in all the songs, there are some pretty cool moments during the solo, the 2112 medley, Limelight, and especially Spirit where the audience cuts loose to the fullest. I think the boots should be rated not on just the band sound but on the audience's performance as well. After all, what's the point in listening to a live recording w/out the audience? I could make a playlist of all the studio versions of the songs if I just wanted to hear the music.   (2004-12-28)
