Production Notes by Cabin Music:
This is a really (and I mean really) nice show from the T4E tour.? All the instruments come through clearly and the vocals are really upfront.? There is a wee bit of wind noise on occasion but nothing that is too distracting.
There were a few things that needed some work when I originally received the source but the taper did an excellent job and as always, should be commended.? However there is one big flaw in the recording.? When it was originally transferred from the master tape, the person doing the transfer added fades at each track separation. There is no practical way to correct these fades.? Alas the master tape has been destroyed and lost to us forever thus this is indeed as good as it gets.?
Since there are fades at each track, you might be tempted to burn this show DAO.? DON'T!? That will add yet more separation between tracks.? Please burn it TAO as you would any other show.

This is a terrific recording, so my remarks below should be taken as minor complaints.
At first, I thought this was a soundboard recording, since the vocals have that sort of "close" sound and the drums are bit "dry" sounding, but I guess it isn't. There are also a few moments of close fan noise/talking, but not bad.
It starts off with an almost-chopped Driven and it ends with YYZ, so I guess that means it's not a complete show; too bad. During disc 1 there is sort of a volume "swirl" effect, but it's minor. I guess that is the wind sound referred to in Area 51's review ?
The fade-in/outs referred to Area 51's review occur only during the audience noise, not the music, and they are not extreme so it's not very bothersome. They sound like not-very-good crossfades where the CD maker wanted to delete the boring crowd noise sections. They are not bad and it would be easy to fix them in any wave file editor by simply shaping the volume.
The "swirling" volume effect is goes aways towards the end of Disc 1. Disc 2 is terrific, almost a 10 rating, especially 2112 and RTB. The Synth sounds in the beginning of 2112 are particulary good.
The CTTH acoustic into has a rare minor Alex mistake, if you find that sort of stuff interesting.

I don't know if it is or not, but it sounds like you're talking about my recording, there!
I taped this show (and Vancouver the night before) ona Sony WM D3 analog Cassette walkman.
First half I was up the hill on the grass, second half I was moved down the hill into the terraced area... hence less of that wind swirling sound...
My masters still exist, and there's only breaks when I had to flip tapes. I never mastered it to digital yet, only made a few tape dubs. Someone maybe hacked it up?
O.K. maybe there's more than one taper? (2007-05-13)
