I've adjusted for the most part, too. But that MSG Encore CD is just
plain bad. It's very difficult to listen to.
But I admire Daltrey for his *own* adjusting, & the re-phrasing he engages
in to make up for his diminishing range. Ironically, those vocal re-phrasings
freshen up the songs. And most importantly, he doesn't overdo it.
> And I think you're right about him sounding better in person than on the
Well, you've got the "rough-edge-reducing" sound of the crowd, the echo
of the venue, etc. These all help eliminate the more obvious vocal limitations
a singer may be experiencing.
I just think Daltrey had a bad night at MSG. He may have overdone it
at Mansfield, he may have had a cold or a throat ailment...... It's happened
to Pete, too. Go out & rent Pete's 1993 PYCHODERELECT live video.
My MSG Encore CD will get about as much playtime as that video.
