That's the one I have. It has some sort of, I can only
describe it as the sound gets thicker and thinner.
It's been that way with every boot I've heard of the
show. This is definitely the best I've had, but it's
so close to being annoys me. The "thicker"
sound comes between songs, but more often than not

Yes, I do. Hey, everyone was great that night. You
know the preshows are as good as the shows to me. I
wish there'd been a post-show, but the bar had closed
when we went back.

Not me. Sometimes it's more about the content than the
