In September Backdraft released one of the best boxsets ever, Rebooked At The International. For obvious reasons that release was a complete sell out within days. Now Backdraft released On Stage – The Ultimate Editon, for those that missed the full boxset.
The release is presented as most bootlegs are nowadays… top notch! The 12 page booklet contains the best pictures that were included in the book coming with the boxset. It could hardly be better. The CDR for in the car looks better than the CD, but who cares? It’ll be in the player most of the time. It is a nice gesture, by the way, to add a CDR for in the car.
The released saved me the time to put together the best content of the boxset on a single disc for car usage. The rough Felton Jarvis Mix, or Felton Jarvis’ rough mix is the opening of the CD. The remaining space is filled with parts of the dinner shows of February 18 and 19.
The only minor I can find is that the CD ends with See See Rider, So if you have it on repeat, like I did, you get that song twice in a row.
If you have the boxset, this CD isn’t really a must, but still I enjoyed it very much and the extra copy is in the car indeed.
