The Hip BT Tracker :: Sloggett’s Cross Country Adventure with The Tragically Hip

Fan and friend, Mark Sloggett has just posted “Sloggett’s Cross Country Adventure with The Tragically Hip” to The Hip Tracker.

Here’s what Mark has to say about the post:

“This torrent is comprised of every single show from the Hip’s mini club tour of the four major Canadian markets between October 17th and November 10th, 2006. I was lucky enough to be able to go to all the shows. Every show was taped with the same equipment. The shows were taped with Neumann KM184 microphones with a Lunatec V3 pre-amp into an Edirol R-4 hard disk recorder.

Personally my favourite shows of the tour were Calgary #1 – my knees buckled when they started to play Fiddler’s Green, Toronto #3 – couldn’t believe that they were playing Tiger The Lion, and the Horseshoe Tavern show – finally after following the band for so long I was able to see them in the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern.

Soundwise I loved the sound of these mikes. I was able to borrow them from a couple of Guelph taper friends. Thanks Dave and Jeff!

Specially thanks to Patrick, Bernie, Sarah, Jenn, Mav and the rest of the crew at EggPlant for making it possible to tape the shows.

A special note – Vancouver #2 was my 200th Hip show.

Also shout out to the European crew. We found out about these shows after the Amsterdam show from the Hip’s manager. Amazing that everything fell into place like they did.

Anyways enjoy the shows.”
