This was a great night in Dallas with John Bonham's band playing Led Zeppelin songs as the opening band and Heart ending it this night with a Led Zeppelin set and Bonham on the drums with them too.
I'll be uploading the John Bonham show too in the near future!

This recording came out well but it wasn't the full range of sound kind of "well" I'd hoped for. I'd taken two digital recorders, a camcorder, and a camera also to get shots. Needless to say; all of this was too much for a blind guy to control. But my buddy, Digital_Journey, was there and he helped with some video and some photos too. That was until the security guard came up behind us.
Less than halfway through the show you'll catch an audible "no video, right" or something similar being shouted a second time. I honestly didn't hear the first time the security guy came up in the recording as I listened to the show all the way through for the first time today. It was just as well that the security for the venue wouldn't let us use the video camera because the audio was very distorted due to microphone problems. We learned after the show from the security guy that the reason he even said anything was because a woman a few rows behind us came to him twice reporting we were recording the show. He said that nobody at the venue even cared about that stuff but when someone comes up and reports it, especially twice, they have to stop it. They didn't make us stop taking photos or even notice the audio recorders probably.
The show came out sounding real clean and good as I listened to it after burning it to disc today. I'm not sure what made the sound less than perfect though. It may have been where we were in the venue or it may have been the sound coming from the stage? It's definitely not bad at all. I don't want to give that impression and I'll post some samples on Dime so others can hear before they download anything and be sure they want it first. I don't think anyone will regret getting it. I've just heard better recordings of this tour and I really was hoping to get one of those myself.
Both Heart and Jason Bonham's band were really great and the night was very enjoyable. There was no clipping in the waveform at the 96 kHz/24 bit WAV I recorded in. But after down sampling to 44 kHz/16 bit WAV there is a tiny bit. It's definitely nothing to worry about and really it isn't worth even mentioning. You won't hear any distortion or breaking audio. And the audience noise is low too in the recording. I did not alter the audio in any way (no EQ'ing) other than what has been mentioned.
I hope you enjoy the show...
