Well folks, I had really, really hoped to do one huge post containing the whole Holmdel > Hartford > Camden 2000 run, but a combination of just not having the time as well as a couple of the sources being problematic for remastering has led me to this single show remaster post. Also, I was hoping etree's "10 years ago today" project might hook me up w/ some upgrade sources for the remasters. So far the only new source I grabbed was 6/30/00, which is ripe for a remaster - nice and full, heavy on the bass.
I figured since the current tour ends on July 4, and with the big weekend coming up, it would be fitting to just toss up 7/4/00 for now. And the second set has got to be one of my faves...great flow and ridiculous jamming. The Jibboo is of course legendary, but don't overlook the last section of the Twist jam. Some chugging, aggressive, classic/hard rock riffs going on right there.
As a couple people have pointed out, the original source is a bit muddy. I decreased the amount of bass and increased the high end to bring out a clearer listen. Before I applied the EQ settings, it was difficult to appreciate Trey's nimble noodle work during the 7:39 - 8:30ish section of Jibboo (among other things). While some of Mike's oomph has been lessened as a result of my tinkering, I find his notes to be a bit easier to decipher. Hopefully you'll like the balance I arrived at. It doesn't quite pack the punch that some of the other sources I've worked with do, but I think it's an improvement. Finally, the stereo balance was lopsided to the left, so I boosted the right channel to give it a more centered sound.
Enjoy, and HAPPY 4TH!!!
