You had a great spot John. We were more over to the very far right of the stage near gate 7 row Y, which I think is close to row 25. You were basically right in the middle of this small venue.

Thanks for posting this show so fast. It was a great night. Did you get there early and have a picnic? One of my favorite shows and I've seen a lot to say that. I appreciate you posting this show. Having a recording of a memorable show is nice to have in your collection.

Your thanks are what make recording and posting worth the effort.  Yes, I was right in the middle, albeit farther back than I like to be, :).  Private boxes are kinda cool, anyway.  No picnic for me, but I did see a friend and her husband.  Got Notar to autograph a pic I took of him, too. He's a really nice guy.  

As for the recording, as I said in another post, being in the "box" had a negative that there were some talkers, but they pretty much shut up for the main CC songs and didn't arrive till 5 songs in.  I was caught by surprise at the start time, thought it was supposed to be 8, so I was moving the mikes a bit during Caravan.

well, if we've never met in person, I definitely give you a pass, :D
that was directed at some folks who I've seen at a bunch of shows who have a low opinion of me.  I should've just kept my mouth shut here, I know it's not anyone here.

I think my recording of last night is even better than this.  BUT, (isn't there always a "but"?)  my recorder shut off at 10 p.m. and I missed the last 1/2 hour of the show.  Surgery today, maybe I'll get this ready to upload in a few days.  Depends on how I feel.
