    Can't wait to put it on in my car. This will likely go down as the most overlooked show of the tour. Phenomenal setlist (one of the best of the tour), and the band was really tight based on my perception at the show. Hope the bootleg confirms what I heard live.

    Everything I've listened to so far on the boot only confirms your points. Definitely an overlooked show, I must concur. Up to Daughter now and the main set has been close to flawless. Killer boot, and its not just because I was there. It's really a fantastic bootleg in terms of sound, flow, energy, performance, and just so well done.
    I like to hear that. I still think it was close to the most 'balanced' show. It didn't tail off anywhere or go off the rails. Greenville was great, for example, for Vs., but then right after it had a lame 5 song run. Hampton never did.

    Listening to it now...did they just kind of abruptly end setting forth and go into not for you, or did something get cut off on the tape? Kind of an odd transition.

    Ed struggled a bit on jeremy. Faithful was fuckin great. Havent made it past not for you. Good quality recording.

    I just checked mine and it sounded like a normal, smooth transition between the two songs (Setting Forth-NFY). I have the MP3 download from Nugs.

    I concur. The flow just felt effortless to me at Hampton; whenever it was a "hits" section it never felt vanilla imho. It felt like a masterfully crafted setlist. The boot conveyed the same vibe to me. "Balanced" is a good word for it, and "varied" as well.

    Is your setting forth about 1:24 minutes long? I listened again and it seemed more normal...but it felt like more couldve been done to close out the song. Its hard to tell cause i have about a milisecond of silence you can hear when the tracks change...whatever though. I could just be upset cause i love setting forth and wish it was longer.

    This show and set is great. Ed is clearly having a harder time getting through songs these days though. Havent heard him give up vocals to the crowd so much..ever. Band is tight, and the passion is felt.

    1.25 mins exactly on my iPhone. Enjoying this boot so much today. This might be my #1 show out of the 10 I've seen. It and Columbia 16 are essentially tied at first place.

    Did you Burn to CD's?(I'm assume you got FLAC files?) If so, it's SBE, or better known as Sector Boundary Errors. I know with a lot of PJ's Bootleg ther is this problem. I'll Burn a Bootleg to CD's for friends and ther is a gap between songs sometimes. I use this : http://trader-s-little-helper.software.informer.com/ It's a easy tool to use. Even for someone like me who's LOW-TECH>LOL


    I haven't got a chance to listen to this yet. looking forward to it as i thought the performance was really good.

    Finished listening finally. Sounded like a lot of distortion on in my tree. Other than that the boot sounds good, though I think the 2013 bootlegs were superior. Band sounds great, but overall a rough vocal performance from ed to say the least. The majority of songs have parts where he'll just stop singing and come back in a couple lines later. Sounds like he was struggling quite a bit. Wondering if he's just losing some of the vocal stamina he's had or if this was just a tough night for him. Songs like faithful really suit his voice these days, and Im suprised that one in particular doesnt get played much anymore. Overall still a pretty enjoyable bootleg. Great setlist.

    Edit: Mustve just been a tough night for Ed's voice. I just listened to Greenville and he sounds great.

    I understand disappointment among some fans but it was a killer night for me as well. All I felt was 25 years of music come to life in front of me.

    I watched the band smile almost all night. Ed was particularly lively. This bad band mood I'm hearing about on here, I didn't see one bit. Killer setlist in my view with a great performance. I slightly preferred Gville, but Hampton was a really wonderful rock show. Crowd was ok, but the band really seemed to enjoy them and themselves. Shocked to see mixed reviews, but we all experience things differently from all kinds of perception. I was in balcony, shit seats, and still found it an utmost powerful experience.

    Yeah, and in Miami he said "Firebird" I believe.
  • wndowpaynewndowpayne Posts: 753
    " Firebird" is understandable...not sure if " Fried Chicken" is slang for something..

    He said 'fire chicken' - slang for firebird/camero.

    Good call... Not to be confused with the classic 84 Thunderchicken (tbird).
