Regina Spektor October 16, 2007 Hammerstein – Lossless Download

Regina Spektor came home to a huge admiring crowd at the sold-out Hammerstein Ballroom on Tuesday. Regina has come a long way from her Lower East Side anti-folk days and such venues as the Sidewalk Cafe, Fez and Tonic, but she has truly retained her modesty, charm and deadly sense of humor. All were on display at Hammerstein, as she worked through a delightful and varied setlist.

This recording was made from the best location for sound in this cavernous venue. However, recording a solo piano artist can be difficult, particularly when the crowd is so supportive. While Regina sings the recording is outstanding, but the volume levels boom when the crowd cheers. Be prepared for those boosts, and enjoy an otherwise thoroughly engaging performance!

    Thanks for this. Great job! Her show here in Phoenix on November 4th will be my first recording attempt.

    Well, recording Regina can be tough, especially with her increase in popularity. The crowd cheering in between (and often during) songs is so much louder than her singing/piano.
    I would seriously recommend getting as close to the PA speakers as possible, and using hyper-cardiod/uni-directional microphones.
    Also, I was lucky that I didn’t have a lot of loud sing-along and screaming people, but I’ve heard that the tour has been rife with them.
    Good luck and let us know how it comes out!

    Yeah I missed out on seeing her when she was playing the small venues :( This place is a 1300 seat theatre and I am sitting front row with an iriver e10, so we’ll see what comes of it. This is my first shot at recording and I bought the iriver because I see other people use them.

    Thanks again for a quality recording. I think it sounds great. Sure you can get just a hint of the cave effect and the crowd is loud. But you still managed to catch Regina’s voice and piano quite clearly. And I like to hear the crowd, it gives the recording energy!

    Love the restart she does on Samson. lol

    General info, my wife already has Begin to Hope, sorry.

    Great sound! If you want to convert the file, you can decode it by downloading the appropriate converter for your operating system, import the tracks, select the “dec. through errors” option and press decode: http://flac.sourceforge.net/download.html

    It worked for me.
