Comments:
This excellent ALD recording was originally posted to Dime by "TheCommish" back in September 2008, and was provided to him by Jim Feisler (undiscokidd). For those unfamiliar with ALD (Assistive Listening Device) recordings, they can be hit-or-miss; they are essentially a low-power FM broadcast made available for hearing-impaired audience members in the arena, and the signal often does not extend beyond the room. They often under-represent the low-end and are staticky due to the low transmitting power. However, the system used by Ruth Eckerd Hall (at least, during the early 2000's) was better than most, and the fidelity was quite good -- and as evidenced by the fact that this was recorded in the parking lot, the signal was relatively strong. The recording is quite listenable and has pretty good dynamics; it has all of the hallmarks of a raw, unprocessed soundboard (after all, it was only intended to help hearing-impaired audience members hear the concert better) but overall quite enjoyable.
