In the text file, it does not say if Randy taped with this rig. But I am guessing that what he taped with the 2nd night is what he indeed taped with the first night. Its sad because this was torrented about 20 days after the concert happened, and we already lost some basic information from the show. Great recording.

Not sure if its Jerome's IEM or a Tech's IEM. It has a click track to the tape and is pretty hissy. But its still listenable. If anyone has problems with the IEM being up here, e-mail us and we will remove it.

Moving around the venue does make the recording lack a bit. Used two minidisc recorders so that when there was the disc swap no time was missed recording as all they had to do was take the mic cable out and put it into the other MD recorder. For the 2nd disc as the taper stated the recording levels were too low which caused some of the noise floor hiss to be apparent.

Was recently back in San Diego for a wedding and I made a few trips to pick up some miniDV and HDV masters up in Los Angeles. Huge haul and I’m excited to be working on it. Just be coincidence, TIMP had gotten his master tapes back from his friend that has been holding onto them at the same time. Back in 2010, I got a lot of his masters from transfer that had been done long ago. They were done through the line out/headphone jack and I knew that doing an optical transfer could optimize the recordings. I had just told him to keep me in the loop with/when he ever was able to get his tapes back. To get back to the story, he was kind enough to bring them over to me so I can transfer them once I get back home! Huge! There was a lot of tapes that I did not have, including this one. Tape sounds excellent! Again, huge thanks for TIMP allowing me to take his master tapes to work on. Great to revisit these tapes again and get the proper transfers of them! At this point, this is the first time these two San Diego tapes have been released.
