I already reviewed the show for the AUD version, so I'll just make a few comments here about the soundboard quality.
The SBD is clean and the instruments are well mixed. You can hear Brent's wonderful electric piano sound very well - better than I remember hearing it at the show, in fact. It contributes in a big way to the beauty of the Playin'.
However, the recording is a Half-Step low in pitch. That's a deal-breaker for me right there. I have plenty of cassettes that are either high or low, fast or slow. I won't accept any more off-pitch recordings when there's so much available at the correct pitch.
Worse, there's a HUGE cut in the middle of Playin', which would be obvious to someone listening to this show for the first time. This version is 2 minutes shorter than the audience version, even though it should be slightly longer due to the slowness. That tells you that a lot has been dropped out.
Still I suggest you at least listen to the Playin' once to hear what the keyboard should sound like (though you will have to mentally transpose the pitch up a half-step unless you have the equipment to correct this).

Not that bad
This is an ok sounding SBD .... the Jim wise version might sound better if you like Auds.... but to call this version terrible is not fair... and it deffinately deserves more then one star... download one track of each and see which one you like better.... IMHO
