    - I got to this show late and didn't have a floor ticket so it wasn't easy finding a patch. At the very last minute I see these guys behind the stage with their mics setup on tent poles pointed at rear facing repeaters and split by the aisle dead center. Less crowd, great view, nice mics and no security back there. Only problem was that no one in the patch chain talked to anyone else and everyone just flipped their tapes anytime they felt like it. Being towards the end of the chain I got a lot of cuts in my recording and always hoped that someone else higher up on that food chain would convert this sweet sounding source but it has never surfaced; so here's a taste.
