C High Great show, which really picks up steam when the Come Clean material starts. Favorite track: Chinese Burn.

rikm There's something magical in being able to hear this show. It takes the listener not only to the performance itself, but also to a time and an ideal and an era, and especially now when live music has been so distant it has an even greater resonance and significance.

This recording captures a series of precious moments, and we're lucky to have it. Thank you to all involved for sharing it...

rob3fish curve has long been a favourite band of mine, with a substantial cache of great songs, but is one of the few that i never saw live. the sound quality here is not bad but the performance is electric and gives me goosebumps! seems to me that the essence of curve is best captured live.

Double Door Chicago IL Monday 6 April 1998.
Audience recording made with a Radio Shack handheld stereo cassette recorder (possibly SCR-59) with a built in microphone and auto-level record volume. Recorded onto Radio Shack MP-X 110 metal type IV cassette. Transfer lineage: Cassette Master > JVC TD-W707 Stereo Double Cassette Deck > stereo RCA cable > Edirol UA-5 USB Audio Capture interface > Sony Sound Forge 7.0 set to WAV 44.1kHz 16 bit. Post production EQing to boost bass and treble, left channel volume boost @ 1.4dB, fades in & out, tape flip noise
during encore break removed.

Recorded and mastered by Gavin Miller

Tape recorder was purchased the day of the show on a whim. This was the only concert I used this recording device for and was returned to the store days later. Audio quality was not as good as I had hoped.

Special thanks to Gavin Miller for this live recording. He did good. :)
