Thanks to the idiots in front of us for talking LOUDLY AND CLEARLY over the beautiful jam between Shoort First and Punchline. the end of Punchline, among many other places. "Are we being loud?" YES. And I know you say you were drunk, but we nicely asked you to keep it down at least 5 times each. You can't be that messed up. Egotistical, maybe? Thanks, jerks. Nobody wants to hear you BS over the recordings. And when you saw me the next day in Asbury you asked if it was posted so you could hear yourselves. Great. Now you'll be able to. Oh also thanks for yelling out the name of every tune you knew as they started it. Great for anyone who doesn't know the titles themselves. Really, we'd rather hear you than the band playing.

Subject: rotating or stationary ? good tunes
I was out there for this last show last Saturday night. The venue was only about half full. Why the promoters and the powers that be insist on the rotating stage is known only to them. I for one would rather have a “half round” configuration and a stationary stage. The rotating stage is not great for the sound or the visual experience. There is stationary sound reinforcement (P.A.) but the stage amps are in constant motion affecting the volume of the sound each listener gets in his or her particular area. The closest seats are actually to close because the PA is up high and are directed over the heads of the 1st 1/2/dozen rows or so. That leaves only direct sound from the stage if you’re up close and indirect sound from the PA. Visually it does provide some interesting angles but makes it impossible to focus on one player for more that a couple of minutes as the stage moves way only to return 6-8 minutes later.
Why the place was so undersold on a Saturday night of a holiday week end I have no idea but I was not surprised. The people who did come out to support were fans as evidenced but the sing-a-long factor.
The scene in the parking lot outside the show was kind of ugly with the influence of Nitrous Oxide vending casting a big sleaze factor over the whole scene. Is it still about the music and enhancing the experience? Seems to me not a chance.
The band played well and this recording reflects the quality of their effort after a long drive from the previous show in Maine. If the long drive did not disoriented them the slow rotating stage surely did. They got to the set break and looked bewildered as to where to exit the stage for a moment.
In some odd way it’s easier to focus on the music with this recording than it was being at the show. Some of the strobe like lighting effects throw off me as well. I must be getting old.
Thanks again to all involved. The band for the performance and allowing taping the tapers and seeders.
Peace love and respect
