A good audience recording. There are backing tape issues during Shout and Dave starts too late.

This source sounds clearer than my previous lossless version, plus it's a complete recording (the other source had The Meaning Of Love fade-in with some music missing and was missing I Like It in its entirety). There is a fade between Ice Machine and New Life but no music is lost. There is another fade between Dreaming Of Me and I Like It but again no music is lost. Some audience noise is missing after "Photographic" compared to the other lossless recording, but I don't think anybody will complain about that.

This recording was spread across two tapes; Just Can't Get Enough and forward is a little noisier than the rest of the recording, but it isn't too bad in my opinion. Only the first tape and I Like It from the second tape required speed correction.
