Man, this one was a tough one to prepare. I rebalanced it four times before being ok with it. It’s an odd mix- guitar and vocals are up in the mix, snare and bass buried.
I am a huge fan of the band- I have been recording their shows for 35(!) years. This one was a special set- when you see D.I. you usually get 45-60 minutes of the hits. On this night, they did songs off of State of Shock (which is rare in itself), but they were also writing new material that apparently never saw the light of day. There is a song in the set called Talk Show Murders that I don’t remember being released anywhere. It makes sense- the band didn’t release their next album of original material until 2007- 12 years later with a completely different lineup.
I shot video of about half the set. I need to get this synched up to it.
