The embarrassment of riches that was our trip to Cooperstown was further enhanced by the quality of the support band, someone quite familiar to NYCTaper, Lee Ranaldo. Back in December, we recorded a couple of the earliest performances of Lee’s new band (Glasslands and Maxwells), but since he’s literally been touring the world since then, we had not seen Lee since those early shows. At Ommegang, his set began while the sun was still shining, and the forty-five minute set of material from Lee’s excellent new album Between the Times and the Tides seemed to fit the scene perfectly. Of course, the abundant availability of Belgian ales didn’t detract from the enjoyment, but this was still a special set. Lee’s band was joined for a couple of songs by Wilco’s keyboardist Pat Sansone, and for almost the entire set by Nels Cline. This intense version of “Xtina As I Knew Her” was supplemented by Nels’ signature guitar style, and we are streaming it below. Lee Ranaldo will return to NYC from the just-completed Wilco tour for a performance at ATP on Pier 36, on September 21.

Of the six NYCTaper rigs running for this set, we chose to mix my Sennheiser 8040 Cardioids with Acidjack’s AKG C 414’s in the omni setting. The mix gives a nice clear signal while also capturing the full soundstage and that “outdoor feel”. While our distance from the sound source (90 feet) was not optimal, this recording nevertheless provides a true “you were there” experience. Enjoy!

Wilco: July 28, 2012 Brewery Ommegang – FLAC / MP3 / Streaming Songs

After catching Wilco’s excellent show at Terminal 5 earlier in the week, to say that we were excited about trekking up to the lovely Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown to see them again would be a gross understatement.  It’s becoming a bit of a tradition for the entire NYCtaper crew to make it to at least one outdoor Wilco concert a year and we decided to expand our range outside of the city after the superb Central Park gigs last September (HERE and HERE).  The tradition also appears to bring rain with it, but judging by the fabulous time both the band and attendees were having you wouldn’t have guessed a single drop fell that night.  No doubt the exceptional Belgian-style beers the brewery serves as well as their hospitality and the gorgeous upstate surroundings bolstered our good spirits.  It became evident early on that Jeff Tweedy and company were as impressed with the fans as we were with them, citing a checklist of criteria that makes for a great crowd at one point.  Along with regular favorites “Heavy Metal Drummer” and “Impossible Germany” (which is always an opportunity for the impressive Nels Cline to shine on guitar), the troupe shrugged off the wet weather with an infrequent showing of “Either Way”, and brought the rare “Laminated Cat” and “What’s the World Got in Store” back into rotation.  Topping the evening with two encores, including a triple-shot of songs from ‘Being There‘, it’s nights like these that keep us eager for the next show and make recording them so enjoyable.

The rain aside, between the four of us we ran no less than six pairs of microphones and were able to set up very close to center right in front of the soundboard.  Having so many choices at hand, we ultimately decided to use acidjack‘s Schoeps and Johnny’s Milabs for our mix.  With Wilco’s FOH engineer extraordinaire Stan Doty at the helm, the sound was exemplary and, in light of the weather conditions, our recording is really quite excellent.  We hope you like what you hear as much as we did.  Enjoy!
