An excellent recording. This is a matrix of the Assistive Listening Device feed (which is basically a soundboard feed intended for use by hearing-impaired individuals to better experience the concert) and an excellent audience recording. There are infrequent bursts of static. Compared to the matrix recording of the prior New York concert two nights prior, the vocals have slightly more distortion, and there tends to be more frequent bursts of static.

Dave dedicates Heroes to "all the Heroes of 9/11, this is for them".

Revision A notes: fan zzed101 discovered that one channel was inverted on this recording, causing undesirable phase cancellation and resulting in a strange sounding "tunnel" sort of effect. This has been corrected. The recording is also re-tracked slightly to correct the start time of Going Backwards, Barrel Of A Gun, and to fold in a superfluous "Encore" track into the end of Never Let Me Down Again.

Thanks to RyanJ for taping and sharing, and to JD for lending Ryan the CCM4 microphones.
