As in 2010, it was once again a windy evening at the Paso fair and I forgot my windscreens, so there is some wind noise. I was on an aisle, so there is
also a lot of phasing from when people walked by. As for audience noise, there was a woman in the section to my left who was excited to hear "So," so you
will hear her in the beginning of that song. There is some clapping along during "Slippin' Into Darkness" and "Low Rider," as well as some occasional
claps that might sound like pops. The worst of the noise came from four people behind me, but they weren't as annoying as I thought they were going to be
and they kept their talking/screaming/singing to a minimum. The two men were loudest in "The Cisco Kid" and "Slippin' Into Darkness," and then the two
women started talking in "Spill The Wine," "So" and "Summer." You'll then hear all of them shouting a conversation in "Low Rider" about heading over to
the mainstage act and that's when they finally left.
I applied very minor eq to two peaks in the wave in "Me And Baby Brother." I did nothing else to the recording.
This is for my mom. For many years, we have sat outside of War shows to listen to them and this was the first time we were finally able to see them (last
year they played just a few miles away but we didn't go out of fear of being killed...and there were indeed stabbings at that show). I only wish the
Lowrider Band was a more frequent touring act because we'd love to see them as well.
Please support the band by buying their official releases and merch.
