We have here a gift from hamp_dk who recorded this and
provided a transfer for preparation and posting :
"I started to dive into my box of MiniDisc recordings.
They were done from the end of 2001 up until about 2005.
I recorded a fair amount of shows. Some sound pretty good,
when considering the circumstances, others sound rather bad.
I never really shared any of these recordings before,
although a few have been copied once or twice.
I hope someone will enjoy my efforts."
The music was not familiar to him so I've done my best to fill
in the details (a few instrumentals are untitled).
This is a solid recording on "really cheap gear". There is
just a little very occasional overloading on the loudest parts
at the show (from the initial recording). The crowd is pretty
restive (closing show of the closing night of a four day outdoor
festival). It is mono and though the channels did not have
completely identical levels I left that as it was (the flacs
appear to have compressed as mono).
Some info and a poster are on the festival site here:
