... And Bootlegs For All

Megadeth - Live in Covington, KY, USA, 2009

 Venue: Madison Theater: Covington, KY, USA
 Date: November 20, 2009
 Time: 50:39/40:30
 Size: 2 CDs

 Sound: B/B+, AUD, copy from master
 Notes: Taper: mutationzone. Lineage: Marantz PMD620 using built-in mics, recording to SD card in CD quality wav format -> Adobe Audition (EQ and volume optimisation) -> CDWave (tracksplitting) -> TLH (FLAC). Taper's comments: "Some might call it Cincinnati OH - in particular I think some promoters seem to be doing that since most people probably won't know where Covington KY is. In fact, it's on the opposite side of the Ohio River in the relatively lawless state of Kentucky where booze is cheap, gambling is legal and people are still allowed to smoke. The Madison is a much better sounding, sensibly laid out, CLEANER and less security invasive place than Bogart's in Cincy which is the more traditional local rock venue. Last night, Robb from Machine Head was very complimentary about The Madison and quite the opposite about Bogies. Interesting comments from Mustaine there. He did seem to be complaining about something at one point but we couldn't hear what he was saying - his mic was borderline useless for the first couple of songs and his guitar was not as high in the mix as I would have expected."
Here are Dave's comments about the show posted on the off. bb: "Droogies! Our apologies to the fans tonight for the outages with the power all night. We employ professionals and they know all of our specifics before we even come into any city or venue. From me, to management, to the agent, to all of our crew, we know better. I don't understand how this happened, but rest assured it won't happen again. We have some people to buy plane tickets for and some people to replace and sadly, so very sadly it comes down to performance. It would be so easy if it was about personalities, because I love all of these guys, but the buck stops with me, and you said you believe in us by showing up and we let you down by playing the place we did with the PA and lights that were there. The building was great, don't get me wrong. Its just that we draw too much power for this quaint club to handle and it affected our show. You didn't think so by your cheers, and staying to the very end, but just know, all I think about, all day long, is getting up here and giving my very, very best."
