This show was recorded by Alan Last, hired muscle to The Bevis Frond on the European 2012 tour. The recorder was positioned slightly to the right of centre on a balcony above the audience.
The recorder is limited to 2Gb files which equate to aprroximately 1 hour of recording at the 24-bit/96kHz setting, so there were two files produced that were stitched back together. I personally wasn't able to detect the join, but that's not to say it is not there.
Also there was some clipping on one channel on the first three tracks, after which everything seemed to settle down nicely. The bass is a little heavy in places, but nothing that can't be adjusted with a tweak of the tone controls. Apart from that the sound is fairly balanced and all of the musicians' parts are audible.
Finally, please do not sell this recording as it is copyright of Nick Saloman and The Bevis Frond. Nick has given permission to share this file, and lease feel free to convert it to whatever format offends your ears the least, although I'd very much appreciate if you'd distribute it only as you find it here.
