Wow, the opening night of the 30th Anniversary Tour, and the "Fellowship of the M1" was there in full force. I guess you could call this the "Return of the Fellowship"!
I ran my hyper-cardioid capsules because we were in the 2nd tier section (literally) few feet from the soundboard.
The first 60 seconds or so is a patch from an alternate source because I ran just a bit late getting set up.

The mix sounded awesome from where we were sitting, and the recording faithfully represents the beautiful mix at the show. Overall, the highs were crisp, mids are punchy and Geddy really comes through nicely. One detraction is that the 1st set's balance is slightly shifted to the right channel. Also, there is that one certain guy who whistles a lot during the show; however, he's pretty back in the mix. Although, he's a bit annoying.

Mastering notes include: bass cut, mid bass and high end boosts, channel balancing and some basic cleanup.
Few amplitude adjustments were made and the entire show was normalized fully to 0dB.

Lastly, I decided to retain the long "Darn That Dragon" intro to Set II along with the post show music for nostalgic sake.

Please do not convert to MP3 or other lossy formats and TRADE FREELY.

What a recording. You can not be disappointed with this recording. It is very, very nice. I think I like this recording a shade better than the other recording from the same date, 30 Years Strong, but only a shade. Both recordings are very strong and quite excellent. Project R30 seems to have a bit more depth, maybe it is a tad bit fuller, I don't know how to describe it. I don't want to take anything away from 30 Years Strong because it too is excellent. This recording may just have slightly more body because of the pre-amp used, I'm not certain. This recording is just so good, get it and you'll be happy !   (2004-09-02)
