Steve Augeri isn't as up front in the sound in this show, but he can still be easily heard and sounds great. I think this recording was made from a little further back than the previous night's show was recorded from. But I could be wrong too? As I was listening to "All The Way", Augeri's voice suddenly gets a lot louder and up front more. And actually, the whole show's sound did too. So it could be the soundboard guy causing the issue to the person holding the microphone recording it, to the label trying to change the sound up. But it does sound like the sound improved. And it's continuing on into "Remember Me" and through the end of CD 1 as I listen.

This concert is not as long as the previous night's performance. It's only about 8 minute (one to two songs) shorter though and is still a good, long, at right at two hour show. And the setlist starts out the same but soon changes in order from the previous night's show too with some new songs added and others like "Open Arms" dropped. But they did add "Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin'", a track they had dropped the night before, back to the setlist.
The sound issue, where it gets better, that I mentioned at the beginning of the post seems to really have made this an excellent recording in the long run. It is a lot better sounding than when the show first stars as I am listening to CD 2 now.
There is audio clipping again, and like I mentioned in the previous night's post, it's probably from Sylph (the label) messing with amplification and EQ'ing. But I have no way to know for sure. It is not anything most people would ever even know because there is no distortion or obvious problems caused by it. You'd pretty much need to look at the waveform to see it as you were listening to see it. Otherwise, most people would never notice anything wrong (or very little if anything wrong). It's still not good to clip audio though.
I hope you enjoy this show...
