show notes: when you're following Gov't Mule and you hear the Stones are playing LA on Halloween, you just gotta make sure you go. I really did want to catch all of Sheryl Crow's set, but LA traffic was a bitch. and there was a lady behind me I had to talk to a bit to mitigate her ruining the Stones recording (she didn't)....great taping seats from my scalper buddy Graham translate into what you hear here, and I'm pretty damn happy with the results (much better than Anaheim a few nights later, that show is ruined by the crowd). see if you agree.
he's no beast of burden, but his name is Dennis. if you don't say thanks, then you can't always get what you want. but that don't (sic) mean that there's no more brown sugar in the pipeline.....so be sure to stay tuned!!!
This was one of many shows scheduled at the end of '02, which included 2 more Stones shows (Anaheim and Tacoma), 2 Guns N' Roses shows (Tacoma and the aborted Vancouver show), and 6 Gov't Mule shows (Seattle thru Scottsdale, AZ). My scalper buddy knows what I need when it comes to taping, and got me a good seat near, just behind, but still in line with the PA on Keith's side. I did chat with a lady behind me a few times, but rarely if ever during the music playing. And the music came out mighty fine indeed. Let your ears be the judge.
The debt of gratitude just grows for Mr. Orr...he seems to have the upload thing down...which is a GOOD thing. Because there's a lot of stuff sitting here that has never seen the light of day (at least source-wise). So if you like what we do, stay tuned, as there is MUCH more to come.
- Tape flip during applause after "Rip This Joint" - seamlessly spliced, no music lost.
- Tape flip during applause after "Honky Tonk Women" - seamlessly spliced, no music lost.
- The recorder was stopped during the "Encore Break" applause, and restarted at the start of "Jumping Jack Flash". It seems like the first second or two of the song is missing.
