Started off as a good day when the UPS guy delivered my new microphones just in time to get everything ready to go to the show.
Was a little worried as I did not have a lot of time to test out the mics before I had to leave for the show. The show was not sold out and I had
4 empty seats to my left so I eventually moved to those seats and was able to comfortably monitor the levels and get them adjusted. I think the
recording came out really good. I also got some Hyper Card elements too. I will try them sometime soon but for now I am happy with the mics.
The show itself was great. Steve Howe was the most impressive of the group, he never fails to impress me. I thought Jon Davison did an
admirable job as well. When I first heard about this tour I thought .... "Why Going For The One?" but I have to say I have a much deeper apreciation
for that album now. I always liked Wonderous Stories, but had not paid real close attention to the rest of the album. My mistake... it is realy much better
than I remembered it to be. There was an intermission between Close to the Edge and Going for the One. I cut out that intermission and spliced the
very begining of the Going For The One set to the end of Siberian Khatru. You can hear the cut for that split second as they don't match perfectly but
it is audience noise so you have all the music intact.
As these are new mics I welcome any comments on the sound quality.
As always... Enjoy!
