recording details:
recorded from a VIP-box with Sennheiser cardoid mikes MKE-40 > custom made power unit > Sony TCD-D8 DAT

editing/mastering details (for the techno-freaks):
Tascam DA-40 > analog > Yamaha 2x31 equalizer (some low boost only) > SPL Vitalizer (some small changes in the low/mid range) > Layla 24/96 > digital > Sound Forge 7 (fade in/out, normalising, some dynamic equalizing, click & crackle, editing) > WAV
(Don't let this all scare you. It didn't ruin the original recording. It just gave the recording some extra drive & power and the things you don't wanna hear were suppressed or removed. This is the complete concert and NO essential parts were deleted! The editing is done with a well-trained musical ear!)

conversion:
WAV > FLAC Frontend (level 8, verify, align on sector boundaries)

Notes from info file:
This concert was uploaded a couple of weeks ago. It was a nice one. But this upload is from ANOTHER SOURCE. The sound quality of this one is, in my humble opinion, so good that, maybe, it is a candidate for the best 2006 recording of Bruce. Perhaps not the best one but at the least IT'S AN ABSOLUTE TOP RECORDING OF AN EXCELLENT CONCERT! That's the reason why I wanna share it with you: it's a clear upgrade. The music comes out very well: bright & clear. The vocals are very near by and audible. There's an almost perfect balance between the music and the audience: almost no talkers, no singers and/or handclapping by the public in the music. Just like everybody wishes a good recording must be.
