from DIMENEW collection # 269

Rec. Info:
DPA 4061 -> Roland D-26 (@ WAV 16/44) -> SD -> HD -> WeTransfer -> my HD -> Audacity (edit/remaster) -> WAV 16/44 -> TLH8 -> FLAC -> DIME -> YOUR EARS AND MIND...
Recorded by dear DIMENEW from 3-4 meters center stage. Exceptional fine recording, a bit bass heavy (but didn't expect this from a Swans concert?) but everything else is
just perfectly good. Sold out crowd. Sorry, no pics or setlist...

Could this really been their farewell tour as announced? If so, the Swans pulled all the stops for a majestic performance in Koeln. I've been told that on the other side of
the road, at big Lanxess Arena, The Cure played...that seems like pop music compared to this long strange trip...So, enjoy! SB.

02. The knot (48:51)
