Notes:  Pre-show music on the PA included the "Welcome Back Kotter" theme, "Feels Like the First Time," "Back in the Saddle Again," "Reunited," "The Boys are Back in Town," and "Foreplay/Long Time" which was interrupted by the band coming on stage. Post-show music was "Let's Stay Together" * - preceeded by footage from the movie "Castaway" on the jumbotron screens on the scoreboard (scenes in which Tom Hanks's character is yelling and kicks away, then goes to search for his befriended volleyball named "Wilson"); with "Tom Hanks" (actually Page's brother Steve McConnell; see if you want explicit confirmation) on guest vocals for the "Blat Boom..." part; ** - "Seven Below" began approximately seven minutes before midnight; during the song a disco ball was lowered from within the scoreboard and it began snowing on stage; several dancers in white with blinking light "stick figure skeletons", dressed as snow creatures (with a vaguely "winter/forest kingdom" fantasy motif, including white costumes with
fur and some horned helmets) came out and began circling the band on stage before moving off into the crowd - while in the crowd several grew into large snow angels by standing on covered ladders; midway during the song snow began falling on the fans on the floor from a pair of snowmaking rigs on the right and left sides of the scoreboard above the floor; shortly before midnight, the snow angels began shining small spotlights around the crowd, appearing similar to search lights; *** - at midnight, pyrotechnics spiraled around and behind the stage (some coming from the snowmaking rigs) and enormous white balloons with snow designs were dropped onto the floor. (Thanks to ZZYZX for pre-show info, and "Chris" for the sound check list.)

01/13/2003 scottz why the cd/eac gen if it was already on a HD?
01/13/2003 twatts Yes, why the EAC? And doesn't Montego II do "bad" resampling???

01/13/2003 CrazyED This seed also has faint diginoise in the left channel throughout piper (I stopped listening after guyute). Also, at the end of disc 1, there is some wierd music between piper>guyute, definatly an error. This is a bad seed, delete it if you have it.
02/08/2003 Schall Sorry for the corrupt set 1 folks. It was all we had so people could sample it before Johnny D left for Germany and canned the seeds.
I have retrieved a clean set 1 from one of my patchers. The conversion from the TB->Forge is flawless and was done at the highest settings, all ready to go on shn and audio.
