    Default Best Boot?

    In your view, what's the best sounding boot from this tour?
    So far, Charlotte (9/27) sounds the best, but I haven't heard them all.
    Any soundboard recordings floating around out there?

    IMHO, the 2/16 Jax show is one of the best. I've had about 15 or 16 shows so far, but that's the one I have kept. I am anxious to see if any decent boots show up from Reno or Vegas though, as those shows really seemed to be smokin'.

    I've heard Charlottes', Phillys' San Diegos' Torontos' and Jacksonvilles' and Jacksonville is by far the best sounding. So, I agree with this post.

    Ed seems to be playing well since the dates have started up again.
    Perhaps hearing better?
    Still don't know what the deal was...

    No one will ever really know for sure everything that has gone on the the past weeks.

    There are 3 'weak' points in the Jax show that I figured I would point out. Dave's voice really cracks on the first verse of RWTD, Ed simply cannot nail the intro to Mean Street and, like many shows, Ed's solo is too long (12 Minutes +-), and at times, even he doesn't seem to know where to take it next. Other than those 3, I can listen to this over and over w/o an issue, and even then, I'll skip around a bit through the weak spots and still listen to most of the 2+ hours.

    BTW, best listened to on a good set of headphones, or better yet, a stereo with a powerful subwoofer.

    Isn't Jacksonville where Dave had major microphone issues though? At the end of RWTD he says three times "can you hear me out there!" so the tech can get his mic volume correct.

    oh, and p.s. I still think Charlotte Steeco remaster has the best sound, closest to a soundboard. Guitar and vocals are extremely clear and up front in it.

    Ed is entitled to not nail everything. It's live and that makes it better. I don't go to concerts to hear exactly how it sounds on the album. Eds' solo could be 30 minutes, I wouldn't give a shit. And this is the one where Dave says "can you hear me out there" 3 times. I don't care about that technical shit but I was saying soundwise this is the best boot and yeah it rocks on headphones. The Charlotte boot I have sounds muffled and the sound is too weak.

    Get the remastered Steeco version and you'll be very happy. I agree with the comments on the rest - Jax is the best recording of the tour for sure in terms of sonic impact.

    I find all of my stuff here:

    Get yourself a good BitTorrent client, like Azureus ( http://azureus.sourceforge.net/index.php ) and go to town.
