from SPACEBANDIT archives
OKM2R -> Sony Hi-MD MR RH1->Sonic stage->Cool edit pro -> WAV -> CDRs -> EAC (SM) -> WAV ->
TLH8 -> FLAC -> DIME->YOUR EARS AND MIND...Recorded by Mr.Marmot, and I think he did good.
VdGG are always a difficult task to record...No remastering done here, what you hear is what
happened a famous Fabrik in lovely Hamburg City, home of St.Pauli soccer club.
As I mentioned before, VdGG are always a difficult band to record. The bass from their system
is as heavy as I can remember from no other band. And there are so many quiet sequences, where
you can hear the needlestick drop on the ground. I failed once at Leverkusen in 2005, but for
all of us, this was saved by Rockpalast. Even their TV broadcast had sereve problems with Mr.
Banton's approach at the deep end. Anyway, received this a few daze ago, here it is unaltered.
Haven't seen this here (or overlooked?) so far. One of my primo bands, and the best progressive
rock band ever. No doubt. Enjoy. SB.
