Comments:
A really nice show with a great setlist. The audience is respectful during
the show. The biggest problem with this show was the low end was too high
and the high end was too low, making the recording sound quite muddy and
overpowering. I boosted the high end and mildly dropped the low end. This
brought out much more definition with vocals, cymbals, and guitar and cut
the bass drum thumping down a bit. Its still a bit heavy on the low end, but
I didnt want to remove anything from the feel of the show, so I didnt
attack the low end very aggressively. There was also a microgap in 'Blackest
Eyes' at 4:35, which I removed. Aligned on sector boundaries and FLACed
(level 8). Fingerprinted genned with Traders Little Helper. I think it came
out pretty good compared to what I started with. Hopefully you will agree.

I received this show thru a weed in the PT-WEEDS group. It went through
a number of copies, so I cant guarantee complete accuracy with regards to the
lineage. The hardware info was culled from COTM for the only show listed
for this date. I received it as 2 audio discs and used EAC to rip it. I
confirmed the files were lossless sourced after ripping the audio discs.

Enjoy the show! [Spectre]
