You may have heard that this CD is recorded "slow". Yes it is. I think that the song that is REALLY effected is "Ghost of A Chance", due to that being a slow song to start with. The sound quality is excellent! Especially Geddy's voice. The only other drawback is that it is not an entire show. If you can live with "speed" problem it is definitely worth trade value.

This would be an outstanding show except for one *BIG* problem -- it runs too slow. I guess some people do not mind but personally, it drives me crazy. Good thing someone had the idea to fix it and re-release it. Check out the review for the much better sounding, "Run Faster". (1999-04-01)
Rush CD Bootleg List
(Audio - 9)
You may have heard a lot of talk about this CD, about how great the sound is. It's put out by KTS, a name that bootleg collectors will recognize -- they are notorious for putting out recordings of excellent sound quality. I've even bought one trusting in the KTS name without hearing it first (I was not disappointed either). You'd think this was the greatest bootleg ever. BUT (and that's a very BIG but)...The recording was done at a slightly slower speed than the original. Best estimates run at about 5%. Why it's slower, when taped from a radio broadcast is anyone's guess, but it is. You might not notice it at first (I didn't, and I even knew about it beforehand), but several songs into the disc and it makes it nearly unlistenable. And unfortunately, not many have speed control on their CD players. I'm honestly surprised that someone else hasn't taken this, sped it up, and re-released it. Packaging on this is decent, with several pictures taken from New Orleans (if one believes the back of the CD), and the cover repeated again on the CD itself. Although the sound quality is superior to most of the RTB boots, this is one to pass up. The slowness of it will make you want to hit your CD player by the time you get to "Freewill". Try Atmospheric instead, if you're looking for an audience CD boot, or trade for it with someone who has sped it up and taped it on normal speed. (1999-04-01)

My very first Rush boot and one that I purchased. This boot kind of spoiled things for me as it sounded spectacular. My next boot (an audience one) just didn't sound anywhere close to this one so I was quite lost.
Anyways, the mix, sound and instrument seperation are phenomenal. I really wish it was the whole concert. I prefer it over "A Show of Hands". Its also nice to hear the crowd fill in "Xanadu" during the chorus of the song.
Of course, there is the whole speed issue with this cd. I originally thought Geddy just naturally sang about an octave lower. Little did I know...
Highly recommended, though I suggest you get "Run Faster" instead, which is the speed corrected version of this release. (2004-09-02)
