The 19992000 NBA season ended up being fortuitous for the Los Angeles Lakers, who were in their inaugural year playing out of the Staples Center.

  • Viashal
Bought this during the RSD in Amsterdam. What a disappointment. Bad live registration. I got rid of it and bought this one: 19075866371, which is a far better live registration of this amazing band
  • Jeb
Decent pressing. Honestly a release more only for Rage fans. The six tracks are nice and do have a good live quality but the audio could be recorded or mastered much much better. as previously stated, it sounds like a bootleg. If you're looking for a live Rage experience then Live at the Grand Olympic is a much better choice. This feels more like a nice compliment or smaller puzzle piece to grab if one looks to achieve a substantial Rage collection.
  • komandante
This is a fascinating and perplexing release for many of the reasons stated here. Upon first listen and a comparative listen to 'Grand Olympic', I do think it's possible some of the audio from 'Grand Olympic' may have been used to supplement the less than desirable sound quality of the audio that was recorded at their 'Convention 2000' appearance. Not altogether different from Kiss 'Alive' not actually all being recorded in Detroit at Cobo Hall. The difference being this record is specifically billed as being a document of their performance at 'Convention 2000'. As stated here by others previously in a variety of ways the audio is less than ideal. I wouldn't say it's as bad as cell phone quality, but that appraisal isn't completely off base, and you can hear voices in the crowd clearly, as in an audience recording. It certainly has a bootleg quality to it, but I've heard some pretty horrible Zeppelin bootlegs, so I'm not that upset about it. Having watched lots of this 'Convention 2000' footage previously online, and watching the DVD 'Grand Olympic' extras, I knew the sound quality of 'Convention 2000' recordings was not that great, and I was curious who might actually have some decent quality audio from this show. I can't help but wonder if they had good audio from this show, why hadn't it become widely available previously via torrent files? I suspect the prospect of a $20-$25 price point for a Record Store Day vinyl release was the impetus to get this project started. If you want a document of this historic show on vinyl, try and find this for $20-$25 and know what you're getting into. This isn't going to sound as good as 'Grand Olympic', and neither will sound as good as the Music On Vinyl pressings of their studio albums. Paying $50 for this pressing is nonsense when you can get a 2018 pressing of 'Grand Olympic' for $20 when it has 16 tracks as opposed to 6. $50 would be better spent toward the 2003 pressings of 'Grand Olympic'. 5,000 copies of 'Convention 2000' were pressed and eventually you'll find a sensible price as I did. I love the band, but my expectations for the sound quality of this release were not that high to begin with, especially after reading the comments here. All of that said, I think they did a fairly admirable job of getting the 'Convention 2000' audio to sound as good as they did....even if they cheated and used audio from another show.
  • Vushura
The vinyl itself is of very good quality, but the recording from the live concert is horrible, seems like some amateur decided to sell his personal record. For the same price you can get a lot more songs with a better quality.Good record for big fans of RATM, bad investment for a casual listener. It should have written LIVE on the front cover, not in between some text on the back of the cover.
  • Frdi
Does anyone else's copy have a misprinted label with Side B printed on both sides?
  • Ahieones
Mine has switched side, side A has Side B songs and viceversa
  • SoSok
mine is misprinted. it should be more expensive? lol
  • Moswyn
I have label swap on my copy. Strange mispress for mpo....
  • Jonide
The audio is definitely lifted from a bootleg of some sort. If you are looking for something that highlights the technical precision of RATM, this is not what you are looking for. In exchange, you can hear the unrest of the crowd and feel how raw the performance is. As far as audio quality, the only disappointing part is the solo at the end of Sleep Now in the Fire, where Morello winds up drowned out. Otherwise, this release is a satisfying and interesting addition to the collection.
  • Conjuril
sounds like a bootleg :( but the energy is there, so good bet if you never saw them live
  • Gavidor
Umm, upon listening to this record I’ve discovered that this is the same audio from the “Live At The Grand Olympic Auditorium” live album.. this is not the real audio from the democratic convention performance. If you watch the crowd shot videos of the democratic convention, and listen to the Grand Olympic Auditorium tracks, and compare to this release, you’ll hear it. I’m sad to say that this release is a lie.
  • Not-the-Same
I know when watching the performance, the audio sounds very similar. Or at least when Zach says “What Up Los Angeles” that definitely felt “added in”. I haven’t given the cd or vinyl of the GOA album a go in a while, but as I mentioned Rage’s live stuff quality wise was sometimes odd.
  • Flamehammer
How Republican of them to pull such a scam, geesh
  • Milleynti
Is it possible that the audio for the DNC youtube video is what is using the audio from “Live At The Grand Olympic Auditorium”.The crowd noise sounds different to me. I'll have to listen to the DNC record again.
  • Manris
saw some of the comments on youtube stating the same thing
  • Questanthr
I've been watching the video performance and the recording or mixing of that performance wasn't thrilling either.Come to think of it actually, the best live quality Rage content IMO is "The Killing Zone" bootleg. This coming from someone who owns quite a bit of Rage material including live material... The stuff Rage released in terms of live material has mainly felt, stiff in a way.
  • Bine
I can`t understand the people complaining about the quality of the sound.... fuck this is a live session. Awesome.
  • spacebreeze
I really enjoy this, it gives you a front row seat perspective of their show in 2000. You can feel the energy from the music, the crowd, the vocals. You can just envision de le Rocha whipping the crowd into a frothy, wild frenzy off this album.
  • Erennge
I agree with Crakaveli. It is a really cool record to listen to. It has the sound to make you feel like you are there and you can hear all the music just fine. I dig it!
  • Hulbine
I actually like it. You can tell the crowd was live and loud. It feels like you’re there and not just recorded out of the mixing board. Very clean press.
  • Cordabor
The songs are great. The pressing is clean. The mixing/recording is horrendous. It is as if this is the audio of someone's cell phone. Its cool to have and gives you a sense of the crowd, but for instance sometimes you can literally hear conversations from members of the crowd as if they were next to you~ like on a cell phone recording.
  • Taur
yeah I was pretty disappointed with this too. It varies as the record progresses but it's not great
  • Vozuru
nice amd clean press but definitely a bootleg quality recording. Still, it captures RATM at the time pretty well and is a good nostalgia trip for me!
  • Bludworm
Quality of this pressing is good but im pretty sure that it's recorded pretty poorly. For example I cant hear nearly any guitar parts in Freedom. It was also way too expensive for not so well recorded and mixed 6 tracks (25€).
  • PanshyR
This depends on the record store. I bought mine for 20€
  • Cerekelv
Nice pressing and a great show, but it sounds somewhat like a bootleg- at least the vocals do. I hope next RSD they release the Denver 2008 DNC protest show.
  • Opilar
Well it's full of energy, but it sounds like you're at the back of the crowd and you want to push forward. Heavy compression makes it a bit of a disconnected listen. It's a good pressing, no surface noise, or clicks / pops etc, but I am left feeling I would rather watch it on Youtube. The highlight, 'Killing in the Name Of' sounds like the bass guitar failed half way through....
