Those were the Grateful Dead taping section days.  Then it was who could get the most wasted it seemed.  I still remember a Greek Theater show when a taper with a PCM-F1 and TLM 170's hooked something up wrong and next thing I saw was smoke rising from his gear.    Running  >:D none of that works.

Funny story, only once in over 1000 shows
I had to pee so bad I got up left my seat went to the
bathroom walked back to my seat all in 90 seconds.
My friends thought I was having a heart
attack because I never leave my seat for anything!
Having friends there made it easy to patch my recording later.

Before and during shows I don't drink. I'm there to do get the job done. Stealth taping - audio and video - is hard work.

After the show I usually drink a few beers.
mics: nakamichi cm-50 | nakamichi cm-300 (JB mod/cp1/cp2/cp3) | primo em4052pmi4's | sp-cmc-4u/at-853 4.7k mod (shotguns/h/c/sc/) | ca-11 (c)
power: ca-ubb (x2) | ca-9200
recorder: roland r-05 (x2)
video: panasonic hdc-sd600 | panasonic hdc-700 | sony hx9v | sony hx50v

I do not like to drink or eat anything before or during a show, but sometimes I'll make exceptions but only to the point where I will not have to go to the restroom.

I do have a favorite Santana recording from back in the late 70's or early 80's when Schaeffer or Dr Pepper or Miller had moved their NYC concerts to the pier. It was in my "less sedate" years and I used to like to record from the back of the pier where you had a few rows of bleachers and could get up above the crowd noise. At some point your hear a little bit of wind noise followed by the music suddenly somewhat muffled followed by better clarity with a bit of wind noise and then the sound is back to normal. That was the march to the porta-san, a few moments of solitude (holding the mic up to the little window vent) and the march back to my seat. Every time I hear that spot in the recording I can visualize the moment as clear as if it happened yesterday.  ;D :headphones:

The rule of field recording: The recording takes precedence over everything else, find a way...  ;D

Wonder if that was the same taper who liked my TC-153SD at Shoreline '87 and offered to patch me in. Like a fool I said no thanks and that I wanted to use my own (shitty) Superscope EC7 Cardioids! I've never seen that source circulate. He had Neumann TLM-170s >PCM.

I am straight as an arrow when  >:D taping. Don't drink (don't want to pee.) I too am old and have a reduced-capacity bladder. (It's not that I Use Old Neumanns. I'M OLD...and I use Neumanns!) ;)
I gave up smoking at taping events years ago because of making too many mistakes. Same with Mushrooms at OTS Dead shows! 12/28/90 Oakland was a DISASTER because of mushrooms! Never again.

Pretty sure it was the same guy.  I remember him being a real nice guy who "had too much fun",
