This recording sounds a lot like a soundboard and just goes to show how well a person who knows how to capture a live concert can do when they want to. There is a little hiss from the tapes that has been left. But that is the way I like it most of the time. Rather than take out the high end musical and similar frequencies by removing the hiss (something you don't even notice after 5 minutes of listening), it is usually better to leave the recording alone and maintain the natural, excellent sound just as it was captured in a case like this one.

I'm not really sure who captured this show's superb audio or where they were sitting, but they were able to keep the majority of the crowd noises out of the recording too. I'd have to guess they were up front with directional microphones for them to have kept the audience noise out as well as they did on this show. The stereo separation is excellent too in the recording.
The one thing I don't like, and chances are this may have been done by someone other than the taper, is the audio clipping in the waveform I see. As I've mentioned a thousand times before, 99.9% of the listeners will never even recognize any clipping. And I imagine the boot label may have played with the amplification or even some EQ work to raise some levels that caused the waveform (audio) to clip. And maybe it was the taper recording with too high of a recording level for all I know? But even with the clipped audio frequencies and my speculations as to how they happened, this is a superb sounding recording and great show. Just listening to it as I prepare this upload makes me think of the midnight movies and seeing The Wall and other shows like The Song Remains The Same and the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Those were the good ole days!
I hope you enjoy the show...
