Following up again and a bit more thouorghly regarding your question, Argentull, I saw Tull in the 70's at two places in MD. The Baltimore Civic Center and The Capital Centre. Their earlier shows were at the Civic Center and they moved to the much larger Capital Centre (which opened in 73 as the band's popularity increased). The Civic Center (renamed but yet open) has less capacity than the huge Capital Centre did. The Centre was demolished in December 2002
after the Verizon Center(the current corporate sponsored name (per the current annoying trend of arena sponsorships) opened in 1997. DC wanted their basketball and hockey teams in DC. The Capital Centre fell to waste.
(The reason I missed your initial question was at the time I hadn't learned the navigation means of the forum, showing past posts I'd made and when someone quoted me and continued the discourse. Since remedied since becoming more active here).
Regarding the initials of the post, the member who paid $3 grand for that media, wow, I can't imagine nor would ever pay such an astronomical for concert footage, but to each...
I've been wracking my brain somewhat trying to remember. I recall Ian's weird silly looking in retrospect blue outfit with the orange things on the shoulders and the more I think about it, I think I do remember feeling annoyed that cameramen were roaming and sometimes obscuring view, but all beyond vague as this was just so long ago. I had upper level seats (bad) and no view of the FOH sound area, per ypur question regarding multitracking. It wouls have likely been remote recorded anyway and no one then would have seen any 8 or 16 track tape nachines. But had you not asked, I never would have given it a thought.
Capital Centre shows were always a pain as the Landover location caused huge backups on the Capital Beltway on show nights. (Baltimore was just easier). Just like Jiffy Lube live in VA is even a bigger pain which prompts me to always skip that venue for as much as I even go to arena concerts anymore.
The two Tull shows I most recall was Passion Play in Baltimore and the "red bowler hat" show in Baltimore, finally floor seats for that one and a bit late irritatingly due to a bad snowstorm and my car getting stuck.
