With all due respect but the recordings I heard so far of 2012 are sonically awful. It's ok to listen to it once, but it's not that I would make a best of from and listen to it over and over again. My audio system is to revealing. And I have such a developed musical hearing that I get annoyed by alot of stuff I hear. Like for example the acoustics of the hall of the Berkley recording sounds horrible. Also I have the feeling the band and Mark are not that well in shape peformance wise at the moment. So for now I stick with the 2010 live recordings of Paris and Nimes. Hopefully some soundboard stuff gets out from the 2013 Tour.

The Berkeley Greek is an outdoor venue, not a hall.

You can't expect the recordings to sound like studio recordings.  The quality of audience recordings from this tour has been excellent by any standard, Berkeley being one of the best. 

I don't totally disagree with you though;  I agree about the performances this tour! ;)

Marbletown is my favorite!   On the RPD cd it was not.  But the first time we heard it live, I was practically knocked out of my seat.    Never heard anything like it.   Used to be that I had to hear TR and/or StN, but now--Marbletown.    Especially the extended instrumentation.     btw  Berkeley is an outdoor arena; that seriously affects acoustics.

Outside of which particular song is the best:   of the venues recorded more than once, like San Francisco, Broomfield and others, which of those recordings came out best, in your opinion?

The SF recordings were probably the worst of the tour.  I guess this is due to the echo in the venue which also was evident in the recordings.  There isn't much to choose between them but the added bass in the 2nd night makes the echo slightly worse, therefore I'll give the nod to the 17th.

Broomfield was great sounding on both nights but the first night was a little clearer, still with powerful bass tones.  Gold medal for the 29th!
