Styx: 2003-06-08 Dallas, TX (FLAC_Bootradr Master AUD_1 CD) (Uncirculated)

Here's another "new" show I recorded of Styx at the "Classic Rock's Main Event" concert in Dallas.  This was one of the Styx, REO Speedwagon, and Journey shows when they all toured together.  I did record Journey (already uploaded here) and REO Speedwagon too on this day.

This show has never been shared until now.  I, back in 2003, created a non EQ'ed version and an EQ'ed version and burned them to CD-Rs.  However, this upload is the non EQ'ed version.  While the EQ'ed version sounds better in many ways, it has too much bass and can distort when turned up.  Besides, baring the definite need to EQ, I like uploading and downloading unaltered recordings and doing my own work on EQ'ing them.  And I know many of you prefer the same.

I wish I'd tracked the songs better back in 2003.  Each song is its own track, but back in those days, I'd start a track marker before the music started playing to catch what the artist had to say about any specific song.  I no longer do that :-)  When I jump to the next song on a CD, I want it to start with music!

For some reason (maybe the hot Texas June heat or seeing REO, Styx, and Journey a few times), I cannot recall too much detail on this concert other than it was great.

Anyhow, I hope those who download the show enjoy it...
