    I know y'all are gonna hate on me for this but I actually talked to rob about restricting the youtubes that go up for exactly that point................i think youtubes are by and large a huge disservice to the artist let alone to the fan who feels compelled to hold an iphone up......but let the fan do what they may the point I was making is the crap that gets leaked - particularly in advance of the album - may give the wrong impression - as it just did in this case

    I would also like to again point out how cool our relatively new grayhead is.............while I in no way speak for anyone apart from myself Simon had the courtesy to check in if it is ok to share such wonderfulness...............again I thought it was a classy gesture that maybe I shouldn't be making public but feel right in doing so...........so thanks again dood for both the courtesy and the recording I am gonna enjoy this weekend along with tony! :p

    I can understand why fans like posting their concert videos, though; even if their cameras don't capture the sound very well, it's still an intimate memento for them to share with their friends and family, remembering their experience at the live concert. They try their best with the equipment they have.

    oh i get that and totally up to them................my point is when they go up on you tube it extends beyond the f&f realm and is now totally out there in the public domain

    not that I am at all down with people who hold up iphones............. ;)

    i think a recording like simon's is in every bit an act of passion, trying to get a good recording, mixing the thing and giving people on the other side of the world or wherever the opportunity to sit down and really listen. whereas holding up a phone is more a zeitgeist thing. i feel it's a bit overrated, for instance kari's mutineers has under 300 views... compared to the masses of files it's just meritless.

    edit: and to simon, i'm glad you asked and all but wow this so badly needed to be on archive.

    i am not talking about scott brown - or simon - or marcel with the stealthy way he does it ;)

    I love a good audio recording and listen to them all the time.................the ONLY time I listen to youtubes is if I cannot get a legit fix elsewhere or I want to clog up my friends' feeds with my incessant postings on various musicians I am cryin about those days........... :)

    It was a conversation with no clear side or answer - it appears to me thath purposefully restricts to only sanctioned videos - hence there isn't any bad quality out there for the most part - or at least that was true around the album release..............not sure that is the answer either - but I am behind the artist having his people monitor the situation and restrict the crap..........I view kari's vids as the exception to the rule cuz she was just in a great spot at the right time........99% aren't that good

    by the way I am just on as the crow flies and agree this is very good so far.............but even this recording is having trouble capturing the essence of the sound textures...........I don't how you would get that without going through the board.....

    edit: simon where were you sitting? my guess is up front........

    YES! Do what Dave Matthews (aka that guy...from that thing......who started your career...) does!!! I'd be broke tomorrow if that happened.

    But, predictably, there's gonna be some sort of professional capture done on the live end. (It may take YEARS *coughcascade* but it's still likely to happen, yeah?)

    i know a lot of members miss neil, but is it fair to say that kitt and smith add some proper freshness to it? fugitive sounds so good... and how the audience don't even recognize the start of babylon, first time i listened through babylon in years.... man, i'm a bit overwhelmed by the whole thing right now. bed now. ok, one more beer one more birds, bed soon.
