Technical Notes: Recorded with an ENG clamp on the security barrier in front of the stage. DPA DUA089 w/s, Shure A53M shock mounts, 5m Bumblebee Silver clad MiAGi Mic cables used. ZU-Pivot 0.5m mini to RCA silver cable between Sonosax and SBM. Sonosax at high gain setting, approx +25dB; SBM gain 8 on the dial. Sonosax powered on a 10XAA sled. No DSP.

taper notes: The stage was part of a two stage set up between the PAs. Meltone played on the eight hand stage which made for location recording further back a problem. I opted to move to the stage lip and run hypercards to elminate the PA sound from the recording. As a result, there is a bit of a hole in the middle and extreme stereo seperation in the recording.
