I need to mention first and foremost that this source fluctuates in sound quality; going from
fair to good to very good at different times throughout the entire recording. But, since
the taper is an experienced taper, I do have to commend him for his efforts. After all it
was his girlfriend who had bought him his ticket to the show-in addition, he mentioned to me that
he had moved three times during the show in order to get a better and clearer recording and
then the other time he moved was because people around him were talking too much, I just
knew this recording was going to be a challenge. And its kind of evident that the taper was
getting frustrated by making certain remarks during the show. Since I received the
DAT tapes back in December 2007, I roughly worked on this recording on and off for about
three and a half weeks, trying different EQ settings, a " phase differential" and few other
things before finally deciding on doing as little as possible would be the better result
in the production in order to gain some sort of balance to the recording. What I did was
reduce the hand claps by 6 or 9 dbs in between tracks individually. Lowered the bass with EQ
with minus gain and then normalized. As well as amplitude adjustments in different areas of
the wav file and that's it, basically in a nutshell there's only so much you can do with
certain recordings. This Rush show is put out for trade for the completest collector in mind. The
reason I say that is I haven't seen another source emerge yet for this venue, and if this
is the only one, then, enjoy it for what it is.
The one thing I do like about this recording is Geddy's vocals are sounding great this night.
And the band is premiering songs from their; "Snakes and Arrows" Cd along with their classics.
The reason for the song "Spirit Of Radio" cutting in is because of a DAT tape switch.
I have to thank our artist, Eric, for doing one hell of a awesome job on the art covers for
the show ! And lastly, just remember the days when you would walk into a independent Cd
store and pick up an RoIO at a high price and one of the reasons you bought it was because
the art covers looked grand ? And then you took a listen to the recording at home and it
wasn't that great ? Well, you didn't have to pay anything for this one !
