This is a great recording i'd go 9/10. One of Brother Ruprecht's best. The clarity is awesome - sounds like you are in the room with them.

The security was mental at this show - there was a sign outside informing patrons that if they used their phones for texting they would be asked to leave. Signs said you couldn't stand up and that anyone using a phone for pictures would also be asked to leave. Brother Ruprecht, as you know, is a simple soul but does like to understand the rules. He stood in front of this sign for a quite a long time and re-read it. Finally he was certain that it didn't say anything specific about using a Sony PCM M10B so he decided it was OK to carry on as planned and see if he could get a good recording. On hearing it I think he succeeded.

All the band got introduced - early on in the show - except Joe - but you can hear when he came in - the crowd let you know.

A few late comers pushing past Ruprecht at the start make a few squeaking chairs interfere with the recording - but other than that it's pretty damn good.
A famous taper friend of Ruprecht in the US heard a sample and said "Don would blow a gasket if he heard this!"

Joe is talking about the festival of lights in Melbourne the night before when he introduces Life's been good. Brother Ruprecht considered thanking the venue for the no stand up rule - as it meant he had clear line of sight for the entire show, ensuring no muffling on the recording - but he didn't have time at the end as he needed to catch a train back to the halfway house before they realised he was out of bed again.

Ruprecht split this show over 3 CD's - set 1 on the first and the second set split over 2 more.
