I think this is TIMP's best tape. Great recording. I had been talking with TIMP to get his MD masters almost 10 years ago. But they were with a friend. I knew I would see them one day and finally in February, I was able to acquire them to work on! The previous transfers were all done headphone out on the minidisc player. I have taken these and done a full digital transfer using my optical out on the MD deck I have. It has made these recordings sound better and it’s amazing to have the best transfers available to preserve these recordings. Great recording done by TIMP this night. MD Flip is close to the end of ‘Wish’ and ‘Only’ starts during the middle of the song. This night was the make up show from 09/16/2005 that was rescheduled. This is one of the longest setlists during this tour at almost 2 hours long. Nice little touch to this make up show for all the fans. Sound quality for this recording is awesome too!

This source has been uncirculated until January 2015. This tape smokes! Great recording and happy to see a second source for this show! Thanks to Ed for taping/sharing his tape, and to BLG for transferring and tracking it!

This is an additional source to this rescheduled date from September. There are problems throughout this recording up until the last third of the concert where there are dropouts. I was going to matrix this with Ed Davis’ recording, but it doesn’t seem worth it at this point. I am really only adding this for archival purposes, or for people that want to collect sources from shows they’ve been to.

I had another version of this same recording that was in 16:9 and had the first part of the recording twice. This looks to be the definitive version of the recording. This was recorded from the left-rear of the venue. A pretty decent recording. Some wide angles and a few close up shots. It is on the filter's YouTube page upres'd to 720p. This DVD does not include the watermarks.

A good recording but the levels are sometimes too high, or too low (this has been evened out), and there are other anomalies from the taper moving around and the mics aiming off-center. The intro to Pinion fades in. The end of Gave Up has some bad mic cord noises and there was a small dropout in the sustain near the end of Hurt, which was removed so you won't notice. Right Where It Belongs and Beside You In Time is basically missing. There was a fade out between Suck and Hurt.
