taper mimymu started in front row balcony, but had to move a little
further back and isolated himself in the center balcony, nobody
in any direction for several rows
(capacity around 500 people, maybe 300 were there)
This is a theater for small plays and such, you can literally
hear the building shaking in a few really loud passages,
a wonder the whole place didn't crack. Busy week for shows
in Phoenix that week, Greg Lake ($$) and Roger Waters ($$$$)
might have bled a few wallets keeping this crowd small.
I can't explain it otherwise. Same promoter for all three
shows and he advertised all three well.
Crank it for full effect, lots of dynamics here, I did not
want to spoil it by messing with it in any audio software.
There are spoken bits here and there by EJ that are just not
very audible, it was that way unless you were up close. I sat
2nd row and he was a little more audible, but still had to hang
on his every word to make it out.
I've included a small number of pictures from the gig in case
anyone wants to create artwork.
