Another one of my masters taped from the front row DFC(Dead Center) Though the ticket states row 3 the front 2 rows were removed for this show and row 3 became the 1st row. Sometimes things just work out that way.

Taping Equipment: CoreSound BiNaurals (in Hat) -> Sony TCD-D7
Transfer: Tascam DA302->COAX->Sound Blaster Audigy->Sound Forge 8->Flac Front End level 8->you

I included the final 2 tracks from the opening act just as filler as it was all I recorded from their set.
The recording is outstanding, you almost feel like you are on the stage with the group.
The 2 tracks by the Wild Colonials are a bit hissy as I had the volume down too low, nearly off, and boosting it after transfering it to the HD produced the audible hiss.
Very memorable show as Pat appeared to recognize me from the Zellerbach show from October the previous year where I sat front row (My feet were hitting the stage right below Adrian's mic stand and you can actually hear Adrian strum the guitar strings prior to the sound coming through the amps in Dinosaur!) Pat first tapped his head at the end of the regular set and motioned at me as if to say "I can still see the microphones in your hat" just as he did at Zellerbach, and after the encores he walked to the front of the stage and gestured with a thumbs-up/thumbs-down looking for approval.
Big thumbs up to a great show!
