Geetarz Comments:
This was the second of two nights at the Civic Center in Hartford, Ct. on this mini tour.
Eric Clapton's stint with Roger Waters really was a pivotal turning point in his career. His management was decidely opposed to his appearance as a "sideman", but this collaboration brought out some of EC's finest playing in over 20 years.
I received this CD set in trade years ago, a cassette tape dump onto CD, with no individual tracks.
I extracted it, did some light EQ and noise reduction.  The "Pros and Cons" portion of the setlist I tracked as well as I could.  Personally (and I know I'm in a minority here), I find it tedious to the extreme so I did the best I could.
It is what it is, not very listenable at times but a worthy document of this tour.

The ectours.de site lists the following: "The show was not sold-out, as promotion for the event was sparse, and the Horizon was not at that time the most popular venue for concerts."
I received this CD set in trade years ago, apparently a tape dump onto CD, with no individual tracks.
I extracted it, did some light EQ and noise reduction. The "Pros and Cons" portion of the setlist I tracked as well as I could. Personally (and I know I'm in a minority here), I find it tedious to the extreme so I did the best I could.

Eric Clapton live in Tampa 2001 - 2CD - May 19

Eric Clapton ,  Ice Palace , Tampa , Florida    May  19  2001
119 min Sound B+
ALD Soundboard & Audience matrix by  John Tsalikes from Master DATS !!!

Remaster by Boguspomp.

Here the reason for the remaster. Originally left channel audience source, right channel ALD.
Left channel was always in synchro with right channel at the beginning of each song, but at the
end between 26/1000 and 44/1000 secs early -  means the speed on the left channel was a little off.
So I corrected that, put them back together and converted the 2 channels into each other to create a matrix.
I  adjusted the volume in the way, that the ALD source is dominant and the audience serves as the reverb and ambience.
A difference in volume of around 4 dB seemed to work fine. All over volume adjusted, left channel
delayed 1/1000 sec to give a kind of stereo feeling and help the people like me, that will listen to
this show on 5.1 systems, not to be forced to listen to the show only through the Center speaker,
which would be the case in pure mono. As someone pointed out in the original post there is a certain
amount of distortion present, that as you might know or don't know, can not be removed.
Must have been recorded too hot. Distortion was also present in the left (aud) channel, not only in the right;
but as the right channel was most of the time dominant in the original post as well, you wouldn't hear it.
This show is by no means in a perfect sonic condition, but the overall improvement is audible and makes it
much more pleasant to listen to this wonderful show.
The 2 sources were obviously from the masters as the Spectrum Analysis' were perfect in both cases.
No equalization or other kind of sonic manipulation. No noise reduction ( has some hiss, but hey )
Enjoy
