Amazing news! Looking forward to Set II's Peaches > AC/DC Bag > Gumbo (Another One Bites The Dust teases) > Down With Disease in remastered glory. Keep on keeping on!

sickness <>< this is a great show. the bag is stellar, but still pales in comparison to the bags from msg and hampton 97 imo it is a little slow and at times too spacey... still looking forward to a possible remaster of 6/30/00 i know i've posted that a few times now... but what a show and I'm hoping to have a remastered copy to crank up before summer tour thanks again <><

hey Conrad, if worse comes to worst i may just have to hook you up with your own personal "take it or leave it" remaster of 6/30/00.

i've been wanting to get that Holmdel > Hartford run up, but the sources I have for 6/30 and one of the others are not really up to snuff remaster-wise.

i've been trying to track down better sources but no luck so far. if tour is approaching i';ll let you know.

I remember going through this myself years ago when I was searching out the best sources for all of summer 2000. I remember reading all the reviews on the etree data base and from what I can recall, most of that summer's auds were extremely bass heavy. At one point I had the whole tour on DAT-B&K 4011's or 4021's I don't exactly remember... but they were way heavy on the bass and hard to enjoy. However, I want to say that I remember the 6/30 B&K to be pretty good. I don't know if it's "remasterable," but let me double check to see which SHN files I have of that show. I also want to say that that show was the only show from that tour that I purposefully hunted down multiple copies of because it was just that good... I appreciate you listening/reading my rants and pleas for this remaster. If it can't be done though... it just can't be done. peace

actually i just checked and the one source i have for 6/30 is actually pretty good. it's an MBHO 603 shnid 1022). it's a little muddy and bass-heavy but it's loud and has tons of energy. i could work with this. if you get ahold of any B&K sources let me know. I think those end up being good remaster candidates because while the low end tends to be way overemphasized (case in point the FOB 9/17/00 i used), i really like how they sound after you mellow out the low end and spike the high end.

i must have been thinking of 6/28 and 7/1...i have two sources for each night, but none are great.

i guess sometimes i get picky and decide i should only do a remaster if it passes a certain sound quality threshold in my mind...but for people who have shows that are really special to them and would like to hear my attempt even if it's not great, i guess i should just try my best and put it out there.

i've been working on 7/4/00 too, and it would be great to do all of 6/28 > 7/4. But if that's too much for one project, perhaps I will try to do 6/30 individually very soon. unless you want me to check out the B&K sources first.

After doing a little research, I think the MBHO source is the same one I have at home in SHN... I do however have the B&K discs at home from my original DAT>CD transfer that I did years ago. I really like the MBHO source, that's the one I have on my iPod currently. It's up to you if you want to try and get a copy of the B&K source for I only have my transfer from DAT>WAV done without any xtra preamps or mixers or fancy technological tools. Your 9/17 remaster does sound stellar! I would totally dig on remasters of all of 6/28-7/4! That was my first full tour, and many of the sources are hard to enjoy. Although I think the 7/3/4 sound pretty good. Anyways... Thanks again for your hard work... and I hope your vacation was kick ass <>< what shows are you doing this summer? peace
