    I had a pal who was friends with most of the sound guys who worked the Bay Area venues and they let him plug into the board to record performances.

    One of my favorite all-time recordings of his was made one night in March of 1983, (IIRC) at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland. The board was full and he couldn't get a spot, so he recorded a show from the 2nd row, resulting in a distinctly different ambience than typical live performance recordings.

    The show is Neil Young doing a several hour solo acoustic performance, playing guitar, piano, organ, harp, banjo and organ. I always like his acoustic shows because he actually interacts with the audience.

    Also the audiences tend to be quiet and respectful, which resulted in recording where you could hear not only every creak of the floorboards but every slightly out of tune/dead string and klunker. (those who've seen him now he's doesn't concern himself much about those).

    The temptation is to turn it up to very high volume to hear all those nuances. But when a song ends and the crowd erupts you can hear the applause as if you're actually sitting in the second row. Really envelopes you and give you the feeling of sitting there.

    I like to listen to it in a comfortable chair in a dark room.....really takes me back.

    Most anything by Jesse Johnson (formerly of "The Time" Prince fame).
    This is what a Strat sounds like with not much on it. Nevermind the syrupy lycrics, just listen to that Strat. I can almost guarantee you'll be very pleasantly surprised.
