This is a slightly more expanded soundboard of the show made famous by "Mystic Dreams". I like the sound on this version a bit better than "Mystic Dreams", a little less stale sounding. Taken from a very low generation tape, thus there is virtually no tape hiss. "Red Sector A" still has the same minor cuts as was on Mystic Dreams. "YYZ / Drum Solo" cuts out about a minute too premature, but not severely distracting. All in all a nice performance and everything is very clear, though Alex is low in the overall mix. Because the mix is more centric on Geddy and Neil, you can hear some nice but extremely subtle differences in the keyboard lines during some of the songs. As with all Digital Reproductions releases, this recording is only available for free trade. If you find this recording for sale, you are being ripped off!    (2004-04-29)


The remastered version of one of my personal faves, 'Mystic 'Dreams'. The fundamental difference is, the sound is more equalized than its predecessor. Also, more of the show is represented, including (most of) the drum solo.    (2004-04-29)


You?ll never believe this but, this bootleg is ?Mystic Dreams? with?BETTER SOUND! I think Alex is in mix soooo much better. Not only that, it is an expanded set list with ?Manhattan Project? between ?Subdivisions? and ?Middletown Dreams?, and ?Marathon? between ?Closer to the Heart? and ?The Trees? as well as 6 or 7 minutes further into the ?YYZ/Drum Solo? bit. So?better sound than ?Mystic Dreams?, a more complete set list and even better artwork, why is it you don?t have this? The best thing about this the best live recording ?New World Man?. A wonderful investment. However, there is one knock, only in that its not the full show. Until there is a full soundboard Power Windows show this will remain a very top class show. My favorite show from this tour is ?Capture My Thoughts? though. It is a complete show and a much better performance than just about ever show I have ever heard! Still, this is a real top class recording. NON-OFFICIAL LIVE ALBUM TRACKS-New World Man, Middletown Dreams, Territories (all are wonderfully played).    (2004-04-29)


This is the upgrade to the original Visions and Illusions released in April '01, which includes corrections to speed. The one flaw in regards to this, is that Red Sector A plays too slow (approximately 1.8% too slow). The resulting pitch drop is noticeable, and is most easily distingishable when compared to the studio release, or A Show of Hands version. All other tracks' speed appears to be perfect.    (2004-04-29)

This release is an update to V&I released back in April '01.? Sonically a better sounding source than "Mystic Dreams" and offers a bit more of the recording.? I would rate this as an EX- because it falls just short of being a great recording.? One major flaw....speed was too fast.? In comparing the sequencer intro of RSA from Visions & Illusions to its counterpart (no pun intended) on ASOH, it looks like there is about +/-1.5% difference.? I took this value and applied it to several songs on V&I and the result was good.? I then corrected the speed on CoolEditPro.? I noticed that Geddy's voice to have a nasal tone quality in the recording both during the songs and during his dialogs with the audience.? Did Geddy have a cold?? Who knows?? Few minor edits were made, mostly small clicks and single channel anomalies and such. Lastly YYZ and the Drum Solo were separated.? The original production for V&I was not available in SHN format. So, in addition to the speed correction, I made .SHN files from the master .WAV files after the speed correction.? Many thanks to Grande Kielbasa for his "tuning ears".? Freely available through trading or blank media trades.    (2004-04-29)
