Taper notes :

This show was given in front of an unusually small attendance. Even though the venue capacity was around 1000, I don't think a third of the room was filled. I can remember the band making fun out of the situation. However, they gave us a killer performance !!

Former drummer Stuart Cable was sacked in September 2003 because of "commitment" issues following the release of the band's fourth LP. Steve Gorman, from The Black Crowes, stood in for him during the band's live performances until Cable got replaced by present drummer Javier Weyler.

Binaural recording. Left and right caps were inverted during recording, so I swapped channels during conversion. The mix from my spot was great and it's also good to hear a reasonable amount of crowd noise in the background. Don't let you mislead by the low-budget rig in the source : this tape is quite enjoiable :)
