Hello Ake, the transmission sound quality for LW3 @ Bush Hall was good . . . but then they've had almost five months to remix it. There's no word that I can extract on when (or whether) the DG set is going out.

Are you talking about the JT session @ LSO St Lukes? Front-of-house sound was excellent at that, as it always is at such an acoustically brilliant venue but Bush Hall is very problematical. It was the same story for the Oysterband Big Session but the broadcast mix was fine.

Overall, I had the impression that far more attention was being paid to sound quality in LW3's second half than in DG's first.   Martin Simpson contributed slide guitar on some of DG's set but he really needn't have bothered. It will be interesting to hear whether this is rescued and made audible in the final mix. I also suspect there was something wrong with the monitor sound as Mike McGoldrick was uncharacteristically out of time and fluffed a couple of entrances.
