Coming up on 15 years later, and this one is finally seeing general release. Impressive when you consider it's been traded around for a long time. Funny how these 'rare trades' things go. I'm not totally sure how it originally got into the trade pool, this might have been part of the infamous shower heist (somebody jacked a bunch of tapes from a tapers drawer while the taper hit the shower).
This source is coming direct from a transfer of a first generation DAT clone, and likely better lineage that what's commonly circulating in the trade circles. Especially considering a bunch of the 1997 IEM feeds that got released were sabotaged in some way (cut songs, noise/clicks inserted, etc), so no clue if the traded Helsinki version has any added baggage.
I do like these Crew feeds. You hear the occasional talk over, occasional instrument changover. Seems like the full-band crew feed didn't appear back until the 360 tour, but looks like not many people knew how to pull it. Must be the allure of a kickass Edge microphone pull!
The crew kinda freak out during the Lemon changeover, and end up just muting the channel. I deleted the 3 minutes of dead air. In general, there was several points of cable dropouts or scanner beeps. I cleaned up most of these, but you might notice a few occasional skips.
Did some basic remaster stuff. Broke out my scanner EQ curve (derived from EQ fingerprint comparisons between IEM receiver vs scanner), some basic exciters/reverb/etc. Nothing to extravagent with the remaster.
Included a little instrumental from the soundcheck for a little added fun.
This is dedicated for all the hyper active traders. This is a fun hobby.
Please don't sell this recording in any way - no cash for blanks, 2:1s, or any other form of "getting paid for your time". Just share it freely.
If you're going to destroy the sound of some ultra-spiffy high-end rigs by encoding and spreading them via poorly encoded mp3's, please keep them on your own computer and not dilute the tradepool. This means you!
Please do not attempt to remaster/remix this recording and spread it around. There is little to no point of trying to compete with the original processing. It just creates problems with conflicting effects and processing errors. If you need to re-eq it for your own listening pleasure, that's fine, just don't spread it around. If you think you are truly capable and still want to take a stab at it, then trade for an untouched copy.
