Vg+ sound after some EQ was done. Cleaning of static noise by wannerl (many thanks to him).

I don't have to mention that the sound level during the concert was almost unbearable (even with earplugs which where given for free at the entrance). And so I was wondering if my recording would be acceptable. I was very surprised to find out that it was. But unfortunately there was some static noise at some passages which made the pleasure of listening less satisfying. When I saw that wannerl uploaded the opener of the show, Baby Dee, and announced that he also had recorded the Swans but also with a lot of static noise I contacted him. He told me that his recording was more or less not listenable because of this static noise but he offered me to try to clean my recording from that noise. So it was done and now the result is really good. The static noise is still there but much less hearable than before. So I decided to upload it. Also at some very loud passages the vocals are a bit distorted but these are very few and the dstortions are not too bad.
So I think it's very enjoyable to listen (in a moderate sound level).
