NOTES:
First note... The Birchmere serves food and beverages, and it shows up in the recording.  Also, there was one point after "This Land" where my mic cord came loose from the recorder - you'll hear a change in audio quality as I fumble to hook it back in.  All that aside, this is an enjoyable recording capturing one of the early shows in this tour!  If you get to go see it live, please do - there's a lot more going on than is captured here.

NOTES:
I thought this recording turned out real nice!  However, after doing everything I realized one thing I forgot... The audio channels (L+R) are reversed.  I had forgotten to swap them.  I don't think it detracts from the recording in any way, but wanted to make you aware of it.  Also, there are 2 points where the audio level and quality changes for a short bit - that is due to me turning my head to follow the show at the other end of the arena (or at the end of my row... Chris Caffery actually stopped right at the end of the row I was in).  Again, not a huge deal.  And at one point you can hear the girls next to me laughing... That was due to the guy in front of us getting up, and realizing the people next to him were older and couldn't easily stand up, he climbed over the chair to exit our row.

Notes:
This was the opening act for Grace Potter & The Nocturnals at Wolf Trap.  I'd never heard them before, but as soon as they took the stage, I was digging it!  Nice mixture of rock, blues, and funk.  Being unfamiliar, I'm not sure all the track names are right, but I took a shot at it.  If I do have a track mislabeled, please let me know so I can correct it.  Enjoy!

Notes:
Another fantastic evening with Robert Plant. And a pretty decent recording if I do say so.  Robert was in great voice, and offered up a healthy dose of Led Zeppelin tunes, as well as some of my favorite solo material.  It was really great hearing In The Mood and Big Log after many years.  I have also included the opening act along with this recording as I'd never heard of Bombino before, but they really laid down some nice jams.  Sorry about the drunk and possibly tripping woman in the recording.  Not sure how I end up next to these people all the time.  Anyway, enjoy the show - I sure
did!
