Notes from info file:

1st show of 2 at Chicago's United Center; he's been on a bad streak in Chicago for the last few years, with sub-par performances on the Rising, D&D, and Seeger Sessions tour, so I had somewhat low expectations for the first night in Chicago. All things considered, it was a pretty good show, with some lesser-played (so far) tracks in the set such as "Adam Raised A Cain" and "Cadillac Ranch"... although these early-tour shows are short (for Bruce), he played with high energy and whipped the crowd into a frenzy, as usual. I have high expectations for tomorrow night.

This recording was made in the back third of the floor, even with the soundboard and in line with the left speaker stack. You'll find some talkers near me for the early part of the set until I was able to navigate into an "oasis" of fans that weren't carrying on lengthy conversations with their neighbors. The early "Magic" songs (Gypsy Biker, Magic) are kind of a mess with chatty fans near me, but the quality of the recording improves significantly as the show goes on. The sound was quite good on the floor, and it's reflected on the recording.

There may be other sources that surface over time, but this is quite enjoyable as it is. This is the raw source (obviously, since the show ended 2 hours ago) -- no EQ'ing has been done. Feel free to remaster and repost as you wish, but please document what you changed.
