Elvis Costello & The Imposters
with Emmylou Harris & Larry Campbell
Central Park Summerstage, Central Park, New York
July 19, 2005

Schoeps CCM4's > Sony PCM-M1 DAT
FOB approx. 20 people from stage, dead to center (see .jpg photo included in torrent)

Amazing show on a hot (94 degrees) humid summer night in the big city. It was so hot & humid
the ground was sweating and it never rained. To make matters worse, I couldn't drink any fluids
for several hours before the show and of course during the show, as in stealth mode recording a
taper does not have the luxury of leaving his place to go to the bathroom. (Little do you all
realize the full extent of how much we tapers suffer for our art.) The photo included with this
torrent was taken from the location where the recording was made using my cell phone camera,
sorry it couldn't be better quality. From right to left you have, Larry Campbell (guitar), Dave
Faragher (Bass); Emmylou Harris; Elvis Costello; Pete Thomas (drums, behind Elvis) & way on
the left, Steve Nieve (Keyboards).

This was the 2nd show of this tour. The first night was in Atlanta. I have not seen any recordings
of the show surface of yet. All in all this was a very enjoyable show which resulted in very good
quality, listenable recording. Of course the clapper and the screamer managed to find me from
time to time, but that just can't be avoided when in the midst of a crowd while in stealth mode.
Some slight rumbling noise during the initial 30 seconds of the introduction on CD 1 while I am
arranging my equipment.

Let me know what you think of this recording. Fell free to convert to whatever format you want
for your own use (I can't stop you anyway), but please, if trading copies of this recording, please
do so in lossless formats such as .shn or .flac.
