Minimax-master-series #1077

Master - Audience recording

Sound quality: exc

Equipment: Zoom H4N with Sound professional microphones SP-CMC-8

When the announcer announced him as "The legendary Don McLean" I had a bit of a doubt about that.
Don and his band gave us about two hours full of blues-songs, country songs, singer-somgwriter songs,
classical songs. The problem was that he's not such a good entertainer on stage. So he stood there with his band
playing all these songs with nice guitar-picking and his voice where he sometimes did not hit the notes. And sometimes
he told us something about the songs but it was a bit lame, just the info about that song and "on we go".
So after a while I nearly felt asleep.
Everyone was waiting for "that no. 01 hit" where he could have done it a bit better by doing jokes or
saying something about it, but -no- one song ended and this song was played. So, yes, he did "Vincent". (Listen to his
announcement to that song! ZACK: "I'm gonna play you "Vincent" ZACK!
Maybe you'll understand what I mean!?

Anyway: hope you like my recording and his performance.

Don McLean
