Recorder's Notes:

Great night for Elton. He is a master on multiple levels. He decided to play Charlotte as a last minute show prior to his gig in Bonarroo.

The acoustics for PNC is horrific. A stand alone audience would be embarrasing. Trsut me on the mtrix being the better option.

The IEM's were decent and at time may have static. Does not to interfere with recording, but can be noticable. Most have been eliminated, healed or minimized. Should not be distracting.

ALSO, during "Crocodile Rock" Elton (out loud to audience) asked the light guy to turn down the lights because they were "Fucking Blinding me" and he in the next verse called the light guy an "Asshole"
