This compilation contains songs from most of the concerts I recorded in 2009. Some of these recordings are very good, some are not. Some of these shows are at small venues with 50 people; some are at baseball stadiums with 50,000 people. Some of these bands have a lot of talent; others suck.  Please keep in mind that I do not necessarily like all these bands.
This is the first time I listened to samples of each of my recordings back to back and it was a real learning experience to compare the sound at different venues and with different transfers, especially how poor my camcorder audio is compared to the stealth mic. After filming a few shows, I now record separate audio when I film to sync in afterwards.
