This is the first night of a 2 night run at Casino Rama.
Lineage: Sony ECM MS-907 -> Sony MZ-R70 -> Cool
Edit -> WAV -> FLAC Level 8 -> CDR
Show taped from 4th row, dead center. A few chatters and clappers nearby, but
minimal interference. Recording came out very well. Show was either sold out,
or near sold out (5000 seating capacity).
Show is about 88 minutes long, but was not tracked into 2 discs. If you need
to burn to 2 audio discs I would recommend splitting at Sisters of Avalon or
Shine had a nice long music intro that was new to this tour. Sisters of Avalon
has a different arrangement than usual, I saw her the following 2 nights as
well and she went back to the 'normal' live version. Sallys Pigeons was done a
cappella by request. Fans were yelling for many songs spanning her whole
career, and she chose to do Sallys Pigeons.
Someone yelled out for She Bop about 15-20 minutes after she had played it.
Cyndi makes the comment "We already played it, didn't you recognize it?". Big
laughter. During Girls Just Want To Have Fun makes a positive comment towards
Canada and states that "You aren't run by some crazy guy from Texas!". After
At Last someone yelled out "That was beautiful, you should put it on your next
album". But, At Last was the title (and first track) on her 2003 release.
These are some of my recollections from this show, it was a great night.
Shorter set than shows done on the 2004 tour, but still very enjoyable.
