The Digital Dan
   (Audio - 6.5)

I lucked out and got the better of the available sources for this show. An incredible audience recording, not so much because of the sound but for the performance. The sound is quite good, a well behaved audience around the taper so no loud mouths to contend with. It can be ever so slightly muddy upper-bass at times, but a fine well resolved recording nonetheless. All the instruments are quite clear. What makes this show special is the mood the group is in tonight. Geddy gives the audience a bit of hard time by occasionally using a bad Southern drawl to introduce songs. But the highlight of the show is Alex and what I refer to as the Great Alex Freak-Out Series. I have shows before and after this concert and neither give any hint as to what Alex will do on this show. He decides to introduce "Prime Mover" himself with a little song and dance that seems to have everyone puzzled. He the proceeds to really clown around with the backing vocals at the end of the song. Next we get to 2112, and Alex goes on to add color commentary to the lyrics. Geddy sings "We are the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx" with Alex replying "Ya know, it's a really tough job"! It goes on the whole song and it is really funny. Just about everyone that has heard it is usually laughing quite hard by the end of the song. Well worth getting a copy of this show if only for Alex's antics. On the whole the performances is very tight, even in spite of Alex. He may be a clown, but he is a consummate musician the whole show. One of my most favorite performances. As with all Digital Reproductions recordings, it's only available via free trade and never for sale. Just visit the trading links section to find people that will gladly trade this recording for free.

Good performance, but has some sound issues. The sound is a bit mid-low heavy. The only high end that seems to come through are Neils crash cymbals and some of the higher synth sounds. There doesn?t appear to be a whole lot of hi-hat or ride cymbal coming through for some weird reason? (you can hear them, but for a show that sounds this clear and apparently close to the PA there should be more) Could be the ?placement? of those sounds on the PA system (the taper could have been on the left side, (close to the speakers) and the ride and hi-hat was panned to the right side? I don?t know) Everything else appears to come through rather well. This is a good recording to hear some of Geddy?s bass licks (Turn the Page and Closer to the Heart comes to mind) and synth pads (Anything Can Happen & Time Stand Still and the horn ?hits? in Neils Solo) however!

One thing I can?t figure out is how Geddy keeps a straight face when Alex is having his fun in Prime Mover?!?! (then again, it?s amazing how Alex could go from his ?antics? in 2112 and rip La Villa the way he does!!!) All in all it?s a fairly good show, the sound problems are not bad enough not to make this one to avoid. You can?t beat the performance and Alex having a LOT of fun!!!

Ron's Rush RoIO Review

This show comes from Rush?s sweep through the South on the HYF tour. The setlist is the same as it was for the rest of the tour, so no real surprises. The interesting part of this show is a bit of vocal clowning from Alex during the intro to Prime Mover, and again during La Villa Strangiato. A solid Rush performance.
