The Library has four audience recordings.
The first is a very good stereo recording, compromised only by a bit of microphone bumping (or rubbing) at the outset and a clipped beginning of Joey. Mike, the taper, wrote: "The flip was less than perfect. Slight cut at beginning of Joey." I'd also note that a handful of microphone bumps and a drop in volume level accompany said tape flip. Mike taped from the back corner (right hand side when facing the stage) of the floor with a Sony WMD3. A very nice tape. Thanks, Mike! Dubbed 12/03/98. 90 min. Request 9811011.
The second is a pretty good stereo recording, compromised by a some fluctuation in volume level. The beginning of Gotta Serve Somebody is clipped. The taper, Ammitai X Worob, wrote: "There is some minor fluctuation in volume during some of the shows, as I was just learning how to use my new DAT. The MSG show was my 1st attempt at recording with a DAT." The recording was made from the fifteenth row, left of center with a Sony M-1 and Core-Sound Cardioids microphones. Thanks, Ammitai! Dubbed 01/07/99. 90 min. Request 9811012.
The third is a good, but a tad strident, recording. The beginning of Tangled Up In Blue is clipped. Otherwise, complete and problem free. Recorded by KP. Contributed by Joseph Pastor. Thanks, Joe! Dubbed 01/07/99. 90 min. Request 9811013.
The fourth is taken from an amateur (two camera) video recording.
A bit rough at the outset - a good bit of the beginning of Gotta Serve Somebody is clipped and there are a couple of rough spots as the audio is adjusted. A rough edit falls between Gotta Serve Somebody and I Want You that results in the clipping of the latter. A few rough spots are also to be encountered during I Want You. Thanks for the loan, Joe. Dubbed 03/22/99. 90 min. Request 9811014. Video source also available on 120 min. VHS. Request 9811014V.
