2008 tour recommendations: sound quality

Post by richardrj » Sat Jul 12, 2008 10:08 pm

What are people's views on the best sound quality recording of the tour so far? I am on Dime and I have the Moncton show, which is excellent (almost professional live album quality). Are there any other recordings on Dime which are as good sound quality as this one? Many thanks.

I've listened to all of the recordings except Bruges. Moncton remains the best, although audience applause is annoyingly loud. There is a remastered version of this recording with audience mixed down. It is on The Traders Den at

All of Banalny's recordings on Dime are very good to excellent. The best two quality wise are Manchester 17th June and Copenhagen. Audience noise is not intrusive on those. They are both fantastic recordings.
