Ron's Rush RoIO Review
   (Audio - 7)

Along with Hartford, this is the first boot from the VT tour to make it into wide circulation, and the first to fall into my eager hands, a mere 16 days after the show was recorded. First, a word of thanks to Bil Girton, the taper and organizer of a massive taping tree, which got this puppy circulated fast. I should also point out that for all the nit-picking I will be doing in the next few sentences, it is only because this is the first boot from this tour, and this one still blows away all the crap that first surfaced at the beginning of the TFE tour. This boot was recorded from the fourth row, directly in front of the left PA stack. In spite of this the sound is a bit distant, but very bass-heavy. It is clean though, with no distortion or signal hiss at all. There is some fading of the high-end frequencies through the first song or two, I presumably due to folks walking in front of the mic as they find their seats. All in all, a very good representation of the sound I saw at the Nissan show, a few days after this one. Performance-wise, I would call this a mixed bag. The setlist is fantastic, and the execution of the old songs is great. The new songs just don't sound that great yet ? not nearly as good as they did at Nissan. All the VT material sounds rushed, and this is almost distracting on "Ghost Rider" and "Secret Touch." The backing vocals on "Secret Touch" are a bit of a mess, with Alex turned up higher in the mix than he really should have been. On the positive side, the band does sound like they are having a lot of fun being back playing for the crowds. The "pre-solo" on "Dreamline" is completely reworked with a very "spacey" feel, and sounds like it would have fit perfectly in a vintage 1969 Pink Floyd jam session. "Between Sun And Moon" is as tight as if the band had been playing it since 1993. Finally, what can I say about the versions of "By-Tor," "Cygnus X-1," and "Working Man," other than ? brilliant. As the tour progresses, there will surely be boots that beat this one in terms of pure sound quality. But until that point, "By-Tor On The Mountain" will do nicely, capturing a unique early concert from what is already shaping up to be a great tour.    (2002-12-16)
