July 2, 1998 Riverport Amphitheater – Maryland Heights, MO

Show Notes

Excellent show with the opening songs totally rocked out. Band looks really happy and playing great. ‘Oceans’ is a beautiful opener and ‘In Hiding’ is one of the finest versions played. ‘Nothingman’ is introduced as a song about a man who “not only couldn’t change the world … he couldn’t even take care of himself.” ‘Institutionalized’ is a Suicidal Tendencies cover (“I’m not crazy, you’re the one who’s crazy … institution.”) ‘Fuckin’ Up’ is a total surprise! Great crowd.

Notes

This 5.1 mix utilizes 5 fully discrete channels.

Disc 1 and 2 can be assembled seamlessly on longer media.

The matrix mixes made for both rear and front channels have
been D’EQed using CE Pro 2.0

I used a matrix mix for the front channels to add a little
life to very dull mono SBD recording. The “surround sound”
feel is still there, IMO.

Sporadic FM static from the mono SBD ALD source mostly found
btwn songs. Infrequent and nothing bad. A few bursts were
removed entirely and others were reduced and masked with the
2 AUD sources. Most of these edits are smooth and most likely
undetectable.

4 seconds of static on the very beginning of Daughter has
been edited out. Both AUD sources were trimmed to match.
This is smooth and most likely undetectable.

A few minutes of crowd cheer was cut on the mono SBD btwn
the last song and first encore break. Both AUDs were trimmed
to match. No music, tuning or talking was missing, just crowd
noise. 1:23:59.589 to 1:26:15.036 total of 02:15.446. This
is smooth and most likely undetectable.

d2t10 “fuckin’ Up’ was cut on AKG source. Patched with Mk4
source, +5db & D’EQed. 1:53:45.781 to 1:54:18.488 for a
total 0:32.707. This is smooth and most likely undetectable.

d2t10 all 3 sources were paused btwn the last song and the
final (2nd) encore. They were all missing a different amount
of btwn crowd cheering. They were trimmed to match and cross
faded to keep sounding smooth an natural. This is smooth
and most likely undetectable.

Neither the SBD or either AUD were all that great. What we
have is about as good as it can be given the source material.
Interestingly enough, listening to each source individually I
was left wondering if it was worth the effort. In the end
the 3 sources ended up complimenting each other very nicely.
Kinda filling in sonic areas that were missing individually.
Maybe like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Jelly alone,
not that great. Peanut butter straight, also not very good.
And plain bread is just that, plain. However, mix all 3
together and bingo, gourmet food! With that said, enjoy this
show, it is really good.

show notes:

ahhhhhhhhhhh, the beginning of the *real* PJ ’98 tour….caught 11 of the shows over 2 months, and this was the first one.

still remember walking to the hotel post-show (this was a fly to St. Loo > fly to Dallas > fly to Phoenix > rent car > fly to LA kinda trip, so no rental car here), and hearing the crickets and frogs.

got “Fuckin’ Up”, right off the bat…it don’t get much better!

THANKS Dan!

FUCK OFF a thousand times until your asshole looks like blue whale asshole Hagar!

or something like that…
