This was recorded at De Boerderij, standing at the left side of the venue. At the beginning
there were some loud talkers, but I could shift a bit so this worked out quite well.
Most talkers were behind the mic so you you don't hear them that much. At the encores a lot
of balloons went around and you here some movement of people trying to hit them. Not much
phasing luckily. A bit of singing along though, but it was a party!
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.

IQ celebrates their 30th anniversary in 2011. Their touring this year is a celebration of IQ
music. Or 30 years of prog-nonsense as they say. This weekend in october they played De Boerderij
two nights on a row. This second night they played songs from every IQ album including some real
rarities. That makes this a very special setlist. There were three songs we already heard the
first night. This was mainly due to the fact that newcomer Neil and recurring member Tim had no
time to learn more songs. They are forgiven for that. Also special guest Johnny was present again.
Another memorable recording of a very special IQ weekend.
