They just sound too dry too me. Not enough of the atmosphere of the venue is captured.
The only issue I have with the Amazon/Apple remasters is how they added a Disc 1/2 fade-in/out (I like a full recording without interruption, myself). The audio still is pretty dry for my tastes, too. Ultimately though it's awesome we got so many shows that tour. Even if it were of similar quality, I'd welcome more quick mix soundboards from other tours. Even 2009.
Unworthy is the ruler whose subjects seek the solace of false gods.
Agreed, I'll take a warts-and-all rough mix over an audience recording... or no recording at all.
"If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm neurotic as hell. I'll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days."
Those were shit versions in general. I don't need a recording of that in any form.
The bootlegs were so fun; it made the setlist threads extra-awesome knowing we'd get to hear the whole thing afterwards.
