Sounds a little flat spatially and sort of set back ... but very cool to have a live recording from Red Rocks of all places.
I guess it sort of mimics being seated somewhere back near Row 50. That's the best way I can describe it ... like being further back and definitely above stage level. Sound stage kind of leans compressed to center. "Leans" being the key operative word. Nowhere near a full, punch you in the face & ears type Shpongle studio production.
Still an excellent recording nonetheless...
Hadn't spun the London live recording til just now. More forward. Bigger punch. Definitely more exciting!
You'll have to hear them for yourself. Once I get to hooking up the 'puter and ripping those two sides - I'll make em available to you in FLAC files. The Red Rocks tracks aren't bad by any stretch, just not as punchy as the London one from the year prior.
Good test case disc for 'the Cube'. This album is rather low-output. Plays clean now but the Sweet Vinyl SVNR 'plus' function does little to mitigate background & low frequency groove noise. Honestly, I can't find any instance where SVNR does much of anything other than shifting the dynamic range to the point that I have to boost up my Pro-Ject phono amp gain - a click or two.
