TAPER NOTES: I got lucky with this one. My seats put me directly in front of a speaker, giving this recording an immediacy missing from others from this tour. After some patching, dynamic range compression and a tiny bit of EQ, I think we have one of the better recordings of a complete "Springsteen On Broadway" tour show. SoB is an unusual show, nightmarish to tape because of the huge dynamic range: at times Bruce purposely steps away from the mic, such as at the end of Promised Land, making manual volume adjustments a must; at times he screams and plays the guitar purposely loud to mimic poor guitar skills, such as in the middle of Growin' Up. I have done my best to level things without adding a bunch of artifact or brickwall compression, and I am pleased with the results. Hope you like it.
