I was thinking the same thing. On first listen, I was so annoyed with the
background noise, imagining myself in the audience cringing and wishing
everybody would shut up. On second listen, though, I heard it as an
interesting piece of the texture of the performance. I wonder if Corwood was
annoyed with the recording or just accepted it as a document of the evening,
for better or worse.
