Taper: Mike Rowefoen
Taper notes: Ol' Mike is happy with the way this came out. The sound was loud but clear, no overpowering bottom end. Too many shows at this place have the bass and kick drum overmiked, shaking you to the bone. OK for Scorpions, I guess, but Rush got it right. Result: a really good recording. Crowd around was respectful (thank you, Rush fans!), lots of bopping, lots of air drumming, but not much chatter at all. One of Ol' Mike's better recordings at a big venue. You'll hear Geddy mention the heat (once), but that doesn't begin to cover how sweltering it was. It truly was a battle of wills for Ol' Mike to hang in there; gotta thank St. Andrew for delivering the gratis bottles of water during "The Larger Bowl" or we might not have survived - at least the complete recording!
joeyjay notes: Ol' Mike pretty much said it all. Great job, and it was hotter than sweltering. Not much air moving around, at least under the covered-seats part of the venue. Rush even went on a half-hour later than the scheduled starting time to let the sun go down. Ol' Mike didn't mention that they had to sop him up with a mop, wring him into a bucket and carry him home. Anyway, a fine recording. Crank it up. Enjoy. On with the show ...

comparable to the Chris Milazzo [sp?] source, quality-wise, though the master volume levels of both recordings seem to be lower than other S&A boots preceding this date (Tampa, Mtn. View, Concord spring to mind).. perhaps it was just the venue itself?
one of the hotter tempuratures the boys had to endure during the dog days of summer '07 but their playing didn't suffer one bit.
this is on par with the finer S&A dates out there; do add this to your collection. (2007-10-08)
