Thanks to TN for sending this over to the archive. The master WAV was very low and I had to amplify the sound by almost 20db. Luckily, you still don’t hear any of the noise floor. Being on the front row, you have some very charismatic fans around you with some yelling and wooing around at certain times. But the recording is quite enjoyable to listen to! TR is a bit chatty at the end of the show before Americans and Even Deeper. Also he stated how stoked he was to be playing before My Bloody Valentine.

Thanks to Alan P. for liberating these CDs and sending a copy over to the archive. This is obviously an IEM feed from the Xavel label. Good quality. We will keep checking to see if they did Summer Sonic as well.

This was given to me by TH from Japan. TheBang had reached out to me saying that this was going to be broadcasted over the next few weeks and we needed to find someone to help capture it. I sent TH an email only to find out they already had it from the first broadcast last year. lol. This was filmed by Brook Linder as well. Only two songs were broadcasted from the festival set. But just like all the other shots from this year, it is very good.

Received from fillow! Here are their notes, "Saved from Youtube. Unfortunately Hiroshi didn't reply (I pinged him on YT and on twitter). Camera info also not available." This was filmed from the rear right. From the looks of it, this may be shot from a phone. But not sure until confirmed.

Many thanks to DD for sending this over. They liberated the bootleg CDs from Japan and this is indeed a different recording than the other sources on the archive already. This is an IEM/Aud matrix as the click track is still apparent on some of the songs. Although, they did a pretty decent job removing them. It is a very good recording. CD split comes after Only.
