Gomez
Genre: 
Rock and Pop

For their 10/11 and 10/12/2002 shows at The Fillmore, Gomez hired Tony Brooke to engineer a live multitrack recording. The system he used was a 40-track DTRS system, a combination of 24-track DA-78HRs and 16-bit DA-88s. Read more about Gomez at Wikipedia.

Gomez released a live album, "Out West (Live At The Fillmore)" in 2005. But according to the liner notes, that album was recorded in January 2005, which Silent Way did not record. However, there was a DVD that accompanied this 2005 album, which was likely a limited edition release. That DVD, according to discogs.com, was "recorded at The Fillmore - San Francisco February 2000. Title and end credit music: Saturday afternoon soundcheck jam."

The recordings engineered by Tony Brooke were made on Friday 10/11/2002 and Saturday 10/12/2002. It is possible that the DVD was actually recorded in October 2002 and listed as from February 2000, either by mistake or due to contractual reasons.

From the CD liner notes: "Apparently, they had wanted to release a live album for some time, but could not reach an agreement with Virgin, so when Gomez and Virgin parted ways following the release of Split the Difference in 2004, the time seemed right." So, it is possible that they waited until they were out of the Virgin contract to release that older recording.

Silent Way is seeking a copy of the DVD to verify.
