- This is officially the second audience recording I've made. I was motivated to tape this Umphrey's show because the last show they played at the Crystal Ballroom was killer and never had an audience source circulate, so I brought what gear I had to document the night.
- A few times during the loudest parts of the concert you can hear what sounds like a little distortion. I wasn't clipping, so I can only assume since I do not have a shock-absorbing mic stand the rumble of the floor was able to climb up the stand and leave some artifacts in the recording.
- Crowd chatter is minimal for the location. The Crystal Ballroom's stage is in the corner of the rectangular venue with the beer garden splitting the room in half creating a couple of haphazard right triangles. Because of this I was able to position the device so nobody was around it for a whole half circle where the walkway between the beer garden and all age age sections was.
