The only similar peculiarities are due to the tape source. Anesini’s mixes have a natural liveliness and a vintage ambiance. Ferrante’s work was mechanical and uneven. No need to try to disparage others as “internet experts” as if they have no ability to discern the quality of the work presented — many have closely evaluated and scrutinized the recordings to come up with their own conclusions about the engineering. At the very least, Anesini never removed the mid-show monologue to the end of the show for “playing convenience,” an alteration to ruined the Live In Las Vegas disc. Although to be fair, that was likely Ernst’s directive rather than Ferrante’s misguided decision.
