Judging by the grades I've seen given to the few versions of this show I have seen on others' lists, I suspect this is a significant upgrade. (I did this transfer specifically for a trade with John Amato in June '03, and he confirms that this is
better than the version he had prior).

I don't know specifically what gen my tapes are, but I got this shortly after the actual show, so it can't be too high. The sound is clear, and well-balanced, but a bit muddy. Still, I give this a B+ overall.? Unknown (Low) Gen Cassette > CPA 7.0 > WAV > SHN.

As with the other volumes of these releases, the goal is 100% preservation. This means that I have done a straight transfer from tape, with no EQ, only normalization, and fades at the beginning and end of each disc. Please keep it this way, and do not remaster this recording.

Special thanks to Dan Eckert for the artwork.?    (2004-06-07)

RFR is definitely a boot just for the records. The sound does not capture the performance; it is not outstanding as in other venues. Do not get me wrong: a superb sound does not necessarily equal a great performance. Besides, the chattering around distracts you from what is happening on stage. The instruments are quite distant and there is too much hissing in the EQ. A bigger effort is necessary for “The Trees”; it’s as if the taper was asked to move back since the sound is more distant. The set list is the usual for the gig. “Red Sector A” is cut; hence, the first seconds are missing. “Roll the Bones” does not have the key intro. RFR does not have much to offer. You can consider “Driven to the Edge” for 1997, for example.    (2008-03-04)
