365MM Tape #2. Audience recording from balcony left. Zoom H1 High Quality WAV->Audacity track divisions/labeling/dead air cut->MP3. First generation, uncirculated.

Second taping. Technically, excellent sounding. Acoustic performance was a lot easier to capture without error. The performance is mixed, however. Garfunkel’s voice is recovering, but still sounds magical most of the time. On one hand, it was amazing to even half of Simon & Garfunkel doing those classic songs I’ve grown up revering. On the other, half the concert was absolutely horrid, pretentious poetry and self-aggrandizing name dropping. Compared to the wonderful storytelling from Arlo Guthrie several months prior, this was frustrating. If you can get past (or simply skip) the talk, there are standout solo versions!
