I had been swore to secrecy to keep this hidden in the vaults, but considering its been just over 9 years since The Bottom Line closed its doors (Jan. 22, 2004), I think it's safe to say that nobody is going to lose their job if this recording circulates now.
This is a pure raw digital soundboard. The audience is barely audible. The mix starts out a little uneven, but the soundman quickly gets things under control. While this could probably still benefit from a some EQ, I haven't touched a thing.
As any fan of MC knows, he's a human jukebox. There's often at least one song that really takes you by surprise. This show is no different. All I can say is...watch out for track 14!
The final track (#21 - closing announcements) isn't really necessary (it contains no music), but I like it (from a historical perspective). The array of artists that graced the stage of The Bottom Line was truly impressive.
