* Twilight Dance typically has a space in the middle, but I chose to break out this one due to it's voracity.
# Rum Runners Members join in, but I don't think they were piped into this mix, just the PA, I do remember hearing them.

There is some static, since this was an outdoor improvised stage, the grounding may have been compromised, it' only noticable during the silent parts and didn't warrent any wavelab adjustments IMO.

This was one of the many fond memories of the band and the "gatherings" they inspired.  The main thing to focus on here when anlyzing the sound quality, is that this was a weekend long gathering of several hundred people who by Saturday evening had wafted themselves into a sporatic peak of lysergic energy.  Most everyone who attended and performed were in quite a pickle ;)

The sound this evening was really good, the equipment large enough to get the music to spread the dozen or so acres everyone was spreadout doin' their own thing. Every piece of land around was owned and farmed by the very strict Amish community.  (betweeen you and I, those folks can party ;)). I think some of the band got into the punch bowl on friday with the rest and I thank em' fer that, cause this gathering was the best place to experiment.  None the less this is incredibly documented and is very "error" free in lieu of getting things just exactly perfect.

The most telling, the aud and announcer's request fer one more...that died off into the announcer and audience, just dropping the idea ;)

One of my faves :)
