PREPARING THE RECORDING
I recorded this show standing in front of the stage, a little to the right.
It was not very crowded, and the audience was quiet, so a good recording situation.
There is one minor glitch in the second song, due to me fumbling with the gear. No further distortions.
My mics were sent for rewiring and they arrived back from Canada just a few hours before the gig.
That was good, because otherwise I wouldn't have recorded this.
Tracks were slightly EQ-ed and volume was a bit corrected, but I kept the dynamics in tact.
I use no compression. After correction, tracks were split at sector boundaries.
Flacs are tagged for convenient playback on compatible systems.

ABOUT THE CONCERT
Moon Safari was promoting their latest album Himlabacken vol.1 and some new songs were played.
Close harmony vocals, 12-string guitar and lots of nice guitar and keyboards. Singer Petter mentioned that tuesday is called Little Friday in Sweden, hence the title of this recording.
There were about 200 people attending and they were all very attentive to the music. That, and a good recording spot, makes this a very nice capture of a band that will hopefully grow to a much bigger audience. They really deserve it!
