Brent's Bootlegs
   (Audio - 8)

What does Brent do when he gets hooked up with some excellent source? Make a production out of it of course. This is one awesome boot. Throughout these 2 CDs, Alex's guitar comes in pure, before it has gone through any effects processors, through the right channel while the rest of the concert comes out of the left channel. I suppose this was recorded with some type of scanner picking up the wireless feed but then I'm not sure. For the last track, Red Barchetta, the concept is the same but this time we hear Geddy's bass through the right channel. This is no "Roll the Bass" though. You can hear each pluck and hear his fingers sliding across the fret board. Any aspiring Alex Lifeson impersonator will love this CD. You can hear exactly what he's playing at all times. You can set the balance of your stereo all the way to the right and swear you're hearing Alex play an acoustic jam in your house. The only downsides of this CD are that this is not quite an entire show (you get what you can take) and also there are some problems with the last few songs on the first disc. The feed fades in and out every few seconds. I normalized the volume on those tracks to minimize the fadeouts and it helped, but it still doesn't sound near as great as the rest of the content on this boot. The 2nd CD is pretty much perfect aside from the occasional fuzz that gets picked up now and then. The left channel throughout this boot sounds like a mediocre audience recording but then that's hardly the point of this CD. This may be the closest to RUSH: Unplugged that we may ever get. This is a must for both the musician and the avid fan.    (1999-04-01)
