Comments:

Hadn't seen Carlos since 1991, what a great show! We were just off the
floor behind the soundboard, nice sound back there. The crowd was not
too bad for a saturday night in Vegas. Carlos went on at about 09:10PM,
and all beverage/food sales stopped at 09:30PM, crowd mellowed as the
evening progressed until the show ended at midnight. Acoustics were
better than average for this show, and I was happy that Carlos' Guitar
was well represented in the "mix".

Added Comment :

What a great show. Almost 3 hours long and full of energy. When I first heard this show I knew, the recording had potential.
So, I straightened up the frequenzies until the SA showed me a smooth, straight response.

I edited some of the tape music off the beginning and shortened the audience before the encore. Besides that, it's all here in all it's glory.
Before and after samples are provided.

Enjoy
