Alejandro Escovedo w/Don Antonio Band
29th March 2017
A Dutchbird recording
Source 1: Soundboard-> Zoom H9 [24bit/48kHz]
Source 2: 2x DPA4061-> MPS6020 > Sony PCM-M10 [24bit/48kHz]
I also used the Zoom's X/Y capsules to make an recording, but because the recorder was plugged into the soundboard far in the back that recordings sounds a bit distant,
so I preferred the other audience recording I made with another recorder and mics from where I was seated,
middle 3rd row
The hall has an echo, which is reflected in the recording
Mixed in Audacity, dithered to 16bit/44.1 kHz with Soundforge 9.0

- Recorded with Alejandro's kind permission. Don't misuse his trust in me by selling this recording.
- Before the show I was allowed entrance to the green room, where I could officially ask recording permission and talk with Alejandro and his wife Nancy Rankin about the tour
- I also recorded the opening set of the Don Antonio Band, which will be uploaded separately. The Don Antonio band consists of members of the Sacri Cuore band
- This shows marked Alejandro's return to the Netherlands with a show of his own since 20 years (I did see him a few years ago in Amsterdam
as part of the Light of Day Tour. I also saw him in the south of England and in Paris.
- Fantastic show. 2 standing ovations and 2 encores.
- Zonnehuis is one of the locations the Paradiso organization uses for their concerts. It's a historical building in the architectural style "Amsterdamse
School"in the northern part of Amsterdam. Over the years the building has had many functions. After its restauration to its original style the main hall, which has been used as a theatre and movie theatre
now is a beautiful concert hall in the 30-ies style.
- The concert was seated, which my feet love, but an Alejandro show should be standing. The rows of chairs were rocking and as the show progressed more and nore people left their chairs.
- A plus: plenty free parking places close to the Zonnehuis
