ROB SEZ: Here's another collaboration with Colin from the Dream Remaster blog. Colin did his best with iffy-sounding files, which came courtesy of ziggyswoon & DarkCircleRoom. When you hear the somewhat distorted sound, just know it was worse before Colin worked his magic — thank you, kind sir! Check out Colin's blog to hear more of his remastering work. There are precious few Felt bootlegs out there, so I wanted to share this one in the best-possible sound quality. For this gig in Portugal, Felt prepared its usual brief setlist, but was surprised when the promoter insisted they continue playing after just 30 minutes on stage. This explains the repetition of songs at the end of the show.

  2. Still i prefer the original transfer with all the flaws. To me this sounds too bloated. It is nice to have more bass but the drums are much more present and muffle things a bit. Good effort still.
