Butterking for JEMS :
The second of three NW shows on the Elevation tour where JEMS was running multiple recorders of multiple sources (Portland "Live at Leeds" mix being the first).
Up in the fantastic city of Vancouver it was mono ALD and audience recordings of what turned out to be a pretty good show. The resulting composite recording is not perfect by any stretch (ALD feeds have dropouts and there are some here though most if not all static bursts have been patched), but still quite good.
JEMS had never done a properly mastered version of this show like we had with Portland so it was just sort of sitting in the vault gathering dust when we heard Francesco's terrific remaster of the Seattle 4/24/05 ALD matrix. After hearing that I contacted Francesco to see if he would be interested in working on Vancouver which he was, the result of which is the torrent you see before you. He did some terrific work on correcting phase problems and opening up the sonic spectrum. Samples provided so you can judge for yourself.
I figured it was worth getting this up before the new tour hits. Enjoy and thanks to Francesco for lending a hand and doing the torrenting.

"When we set out on this record it was Larry who came up with the plan not to have a plan. He put up this idea that wouldn’t it be great just to make music for its own sake, not for the purpose of a live show or on album but just to see what we’re capable of.."
