PREPARING THE RECORDING
I recorded this show standing left of the stage, 6th row from the front.
There is some audience that you hear; some talkers and singers at the start,
not distracting though. A bit of singing at the start and some distant chatter
from the girls behind the sales desk, who were quit loud actually.
I recorded this straight from the mic without the pre-amp, because itŐs not
working properly. Dynamics are still pretty good I think.
Tracks were slightly EQ-ed and volume was a bit corrected, but I kept the dynamics in tact.
I use no compression. After correction, tracks were split at sector boundaries.
Flacs are tagged for convenient playback on compatible systems.

ABOUT THE CONCERT
IQ presented their new album The Road of Bones at the Melkweg. It has been a while
since they played in Amsterdam. They were set in the small hall of the venue (De Oude Zaal).
It was quite busy. People were receptive and eager to hear the band. Apart from some
mistakes this was a good concert. They sounded tight and good.
Just enjoy IQ and remember to buy the new album if you like it.
