Recorded by dear friend and taping viKING Lars front row dead center. Some raindrops here and there and a real frenzied crowd towards the end of the show distracting this recording a bit.
But it seems to be one of the few complete recordings from that show, as a massive rain including even small icy balls left the audience soaking wet. But it seems that you can't fool a
Norwegian with that kind of "summer breeze". Sorry, no setlist and no pics.

Spacey's notes...

The Mountain called again...and am I that stupid not to hear it? No.
Once again it was a gorgeous five days up on that hills in north easter Hessen filled with pure joy and fun. And even the weather couldn't resist to show its nice face
(yes, except for friday), but it all went very smoothly and fine. Thanks to the crew at BurgHerzbergFestival for making that possible. Almost a week "outside the society",
but as "WE" made our own society there, no violence, no rascim, no hate, no religious madness, no straight capitalism was found there and will never grow their roots up on
the "Holy Mountain". This year marked my 20th visit and I'm still amazed...or even...each year more...
My deepest thanks straight from the heart are to my crew at the campground and my dear fellow DIME tapers as there were...
Lars from Oslo, Martin from Bochum, Wolly from Kevelaer, Olaf and Eddie from Hannover, my bro' Martin + Martina, Klaus from Dortmund, Thomas and Manuela, Volker and Evelyn from Mannheim,
Maggie from Duesseldorf and my TAPERHEARTBROTHERS...Rendel, Propylaen, Krautbeard and HarrieTheFox...and all I forgot...except for the Horst...
It was a real pleasure...

Some Statistics:

Attendence: 12.000+
Ticket price: In advanve 90 Euros
Catering: A lot of food booths with tasty food, also a lot of vegan. Very nice prices. Good smoke, too.
Drinks: Beer tents, Cocktail bars, Winerys...all you could have. Very nice prices, too.
Loos: Refreshed at least twice a day. And there were many. Fine.
Music: I considered this before as the worst lineup in 20 years there, but there were some fine acts, too.
Security: I think...very low...didn't see any police or customs at all. Super!
Wellness: Showers, Massages, Mindaltering services (not included in the ticket). Great!

But now let's get the "tape" rolling...

Five years after his marvellous "stoood-in" performance for a sick Gregg Allman @ the Holy Mountain and two years after his life threatening liver transplant Walter Trout was greeted
back to Burg Herzberg Festival with high emotions. If only the weather would'd been in the same mood, but unfortunately it was not. What started with light constant rain grew into
a massive downpour with strong winds. As I was late for the show I decided to stay at our camp which was "lifesaving", at least for our tents and pavillions. Walter's show to be
interruped for about 45 minutes and he jumped straight back in again where he stopped. Great! So, without any further useless talk, let's hear some fine bluesguitar....SB.
