Notes: This was my first ever taping experience and Porcupine Tree concert at the same time. In comparison to some other Deadwing shows before and after the Munich gig, the band put on an even greater performance without any flaws, musically. Technically there have been some guitar issues (as usual?) e.g. during the heavy part of Arriving Somewhere But Not Here, which can be noticed if you listen closely. Impressed by the concert itself, I was as well pleased with the clear sound of my recording which is indeed a result of the great acoustics at the Elserhalle! Thanks a lot to 'Distortion' for the mics!

Furthermore this is the second and better version of my recording. After half a year, I eq'ed the raw file again and was able to do a better job with it. In comparison to the first version, I removed the hiss which was audible during calmer parts, fixed the channel problem as the left channel was louder than the right one (especially at the first few songs) and dropped treble.
