Taper's notes:

For the encore, Tony Leone played mandolin and Adam MacDougall played drums.

I had a glitch in the beginning of Set 2, where I think I must have bumped one of the switchs on my preamp, sending the gain too high. The first two songs were brick-walled. Fortunately, the mighty DMan was there to save my ass and he gave me a copy of the set so that I could patch up my source. So the first 3 tracks (Intro, Stranger in a Strange Land, Ain't it Hard but Fair) of Set 2 are from Source 2. Big thanks to DMan!

For this first night, the Fillmore staff shoved us into the back corner of the venue, and we picked up a lot of boomy mid-lows coming off the wall. It was hard to EQ this show, but I think I finally got it sounding right for my playback rig.

Shout out to Cristian (SoCal), Taper Phil (NorCal) and DMan (AllCal)! It was great to hang with you guys.
