1982-12-14 Muziekcentrum Vredenburg, Utrecht, The Netherlands/Source 3
Excellent quality audio from the television broadcast of this program. Like most TV broadcasts of the time, this is mono audio. Other than a small glitch during The Meaning Of Love, the audio is quite stable. Just Can't Get Enough has been edited to reduce the duration of the program for broadcast by cutting out the extended 12" portion toward the end of the song.
This was the last concert from the 1982 leg of the A Broken Frame tour. Too bad more of it wasn't broadcast!
Many thanks to TravisBickle1963 for unearthing this superb tape. If you have any master video recordings of Depeche Mode or other bands, please contact us and we can help you preserve those recordings!
You may find the video that this audio was extracted from at Source 2.
There is also another audio source which includes two additional songs ("My Secret Garden" and "New Life") from an FM broadcast, but at this point it needs to be recreated using this source's superior audio. It can be found at Source 1.
