Taper�s rant / equipment used : You want to know what gear I used? Thank your lucky stars you haven�t had to
wait 6 months to get a copy of this on a badly recorded sixth generation C90 lo-fi cassette from a friend of a friend
of a friend. Did you drive for 3 hours, spend a fortune on petrol and leeks, stay in a noisy flea-bitten hotel, eat a
dodgy curry, smuggle gear into the gig, sit there as fear gripped your heart? No, all you had to do was sit on your
fat spotty arse and download it!

Anyway it was Sonics + PCM-M1 > soundblaster > cool-edit pro > cdwave > you, you ungrateful bastard!

The taper was cranky but the recording is excellent - pristine A+ sound for an audience recording.
