Mastering Notes:
The first 22 seconds of "No Speak No Slave" are missing from the soundboard source, and were patched with the CA-14 ambient source.

Show Notes:
While night one seemed to be the "deep cuts" affair, this night was a full-blown rock-show bacchanal.

Did this setlist have something to do with Chris' announcement about "As The Crow Flies" playing a few weeks of shows this spring?

The first 7 songs, right thru "Eclipse The Night", were like a battering-ram to the ol' coin-purse:

Dear Chris,
"We have Marc Ford....you don't."
Love, Rich

Then to have Riff and Effin' veer off into Dylan's "Billy 4" after that.............and the chilling "Cold Boy Smile", and "Tumbling Dice" played ***before*** the casino show the next night...it was clear the band was having fun, and eating up the adulation from the near-sellout crowd.

I will say that the upstairs (balcony and FOH) *was* shaking quite a bit during "Thick N' Thin", and again during, yes, "Soul Singing", so not sure if that affects the quality of the video or not (haven't had time to breathe since getting home). The FOH crew did warn me that this could happen during the show, so hopefully the "balled up sock zip-tied between the monopod and railing" and the telescope vibration disc put under it mitigated this somewhat...the above 2 songs are for sure where it would be the worst.


There were 2 setlist swaps, of which pictures have been included (before, and after).

So, in the interest of brevity as the previous NYC *soundboard* show notes state,

"Thanks Magpie Salute, Thanks Dennis, Fuck Hagar!"

It's really easy, and feels good to say so.

One. More. To. Go. (not counting the Cutting Room set...and it may be a couple days before I get Atlantic City all noted-up)

---Mr. Deep is off to the races...or something like that.
