If you recall my rant from a few uploads ago about having to make crappy recordings before you can truly make good recordings, this recording falls into that category. Just purchased the new DAT deck and learning the ropes with it. The problem with this recording is that it was recorded at a very low level throghout the show and the volume keeps changing throughout. There is an approximate adjustment of +30db for the entire show and there are certain sections of the show that alot more than 30db was applied. Fortunately, this is a DAT recording which allows for these massive volume adjustments, but the show sounds very muddy and constant volume changes and adjustments throughout. If this recording was made on cassette, it would have been totally unlistenable. At least this is listenable, but not too enjoyable from a sound quality standpoint. Buddy's performance is excellent as usual. Sample included.
