notes by the taper
I first found the ultimate place to record the bands (close to the stage under the right suspended PA) but after hours,
my wife had a short dizzy turn due to crowd immersion and extremely loud basses delivered by the Gary Clark band.
So we had to move to fresh air.
When i wanted to join this position again it was impossible and i had to stand 15/20 meters from stage still facing right PA.
It was very uncomfortable to be surrounded by the crowd with a lot of people movement, (mainly by very talkative Spanish people - don't insult me, i really love Spanish guys, but just not when they are drunk at a C Horse show -).
Some were fair when i explained i planned to record the show (i promised to share it with them if they don't shout) but others did not; it's not a sin to celebrate the Horse.

By chance, we can hear chating around the mics only during the quiets songs and not throughout.
Finally, only Blowin' in he wind suffered from this bad treatment and it's a very unjoyable recording.

The show was classic considering this European tour setlists, except for a double second solo on Powderfinger and Human highway.
