Well, this guy named Dennis told me Black Mountain was playing in Seattle March 11, so after researching plane tix ($216 r/t) and finding a cheap rental car ($148 for 5 days), I started poking around in that time frame and found the first Ann Wilson of Heart show ever, tour starting in her hometown 3 days earlier. After sitting on the tarmac for a half hour upon arrival, I was then told my car had no trunk, and one with a trunk would be $300 more (OOOPS!). Well, at least the Portland homeless won't be wearing my duds!!!
On to the show itself...what a rocking rocktacular rockfest! She easily blew away any middling expectations I may have had. Several reworkings, several covers. This was recorded from the 2nd to the last row in the balcony (as to try and film), but you really wouldn't know it (there was no one in front of me for an easy 10 rows).
I'll never get over how adequate the internal mics on the DR-2d are. I mean, seriously, to capture her *voice* the way they did, truly drops my jaw. I also ran my Sonics, but they did something they've never done before...there's like 4-8 db dropouts of sorts throughout (the short may be appearing in the mics again after 23 years...).
He's got a ginormous heart, and his name is Dennis. Thank him for working some magic with the raw materials "The Button Pusher" provides. There is more to come. Much, MUCH more. Promise...!
