If you are a fan of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and Al Pitrelli...
This is a MUST HAVE.
Uncirculated until now!!!!!
Some Notes: This was my 2nd or 3rd trip traveling from Maryland to Cleveland to see the band. There were ALWAYS so great.
My buddy Charlie had a table right up front for capturing video and i had a table near the front with my H2 Zoom recording and then i
talked to the soundman who said i could hang my Minidisc mic from the pole right next to him. So we had my bases covered as far as
closeness and ambient audio. Boy was it worth it. The audio i think came out beautifully. You can hear everything really clear.
I am SOOOOO proud of how this turned out. I also decided to play with some of the features of Sony Vegas Program. Yeah it may be a little
Cheesy but i like certain cheeses. The only problem i really had was for some reason the MD audio and Zoom audio were different lengths.
So i had to cut out a few milliseconds here and there to get everything in sync. What a PAIN IN THE ASS!!!!....But i think those that download
and watch this will agree all that hard work paid off.
Watching Al play with such passion and precision is amazing. Anyone who has seen TSO knows what i am talking about when it comes to watching
him up close. I dont give a fuck what you say but John O'Reilly is an amazing drummer. Hopefully this will put an end to some of the naysayers
who think Jeff Plate could play circles around him. Thats like comparing Apples to Oranges. I'd be willing to bet John could teach Jeff a thing
Nothing against Jeff but John is amazing! Maybe he doesnt get to flex his muscle like Jeff does but maybe he doesnt need to.
Anyway......If you like a sort of Jazz Fusion mixed in with some Rock mixed in with some mellow ambient textures....DOWNLOAD THIS!
And if your not?....DOWNLOAD ANYWAY!!!
I am Harleyguy...... Who the fuck are u??
The Following 32 Members Thank Harleyguy For This Torrent
Jane Mangini and Al Pitrelli of Trans-Siberian Orchastra fame and Al's countless other bands(Savatage, Megadeth, Dee Snider in Widowmaker). Actually Jane started the band and recruited her husband....LOL
It's a mix of Jazz Fusion mised with Rock...and had a sprinkle of New Ageyness.
Thanks to Harleyguy for putting this up. . . I had to sit on this for awhile for various reasons, but it was worth the wait - at least for those familiar with Al Pitrelli's work. John O'Reilly, on drums, has also toured with BOC, Rainbow, and a number of other fairly well-known acts, shows his considerable chops during this outing.
Thanks to Harleyguy for authoring and upping this. It's been way too long, but I wasn't able to green light this one for quite some time. Bottom line is that anyone who's even moderately a fan of Al Pitrell's work needs to see this show. Also, John O'Reilly, who's toured with BOC, Rainbow, and a host of others, shows his considerable chops during this outing. One of the most underappreciated drummers of our time, IMO.
DL'ing this just so I can seed it. People really need to see this and appreciate the work Harleyguy has done on this.
