SANTANA 1992-08-27 Santa Barbara County Bowl Ex+ SBD (with binaural ambience) Dat master - 132 min.

August 27, 1992
Santa Barbara County Bowl
Santa Barbara, California, USA

Stereo soundboard plus Sennheiser binaural mics on "dummy head" (live matrix mix). It really sounds a lot like a soundboard-only recording, except that some audience noise can be heard low in the mix in the background. Recordings of this show and the three nights that follow (Concord, Shoreline and Cal Expo) all sound fantastic. Carlos loved recordings made with the binaural mics and was into making the live tapes sound as good as possible. Highly recommended!
