A good day in Portland. Weather was beautiful. Good coffee everywhere. Long conversation with Matt who drove up for the day. Performance was joyful. I don’t think many audiences understand just how much they can influence a performance. The enthusiasm and active listening at this venue in Portland always brings out the best in us. Afterwards our engineer Stephen announced that he decided to record the performance. Right on. I’m glad.

    I always was wondering, what you do with these live recordings. Do you keep them, store them away like a “memorabilia”. Or do you analyse them like Phil Collins used to do in his Genesis years?

    Anyway, I’m surely not the only lad here, that would be really interested in some board bootlegs ;-)

      Good question. I don’t analyze the recordings. I don’t even ever listen to them. But I understand that it would be a nice resource for people who might not be able to see a performance.
      After the concert Matt said that he thinks he has seen about fifty of our shows and that the Portland performance was a special one. So, in a few weeks, it’ll become part of the Backstage offerings.
