A very good audience recording. It's a little treble-heavy. The recording is fairly muffled until two minutes into [[Two Minute Warning]] where the taper probably adjusted his microphones.

Do note that the master tape of this audience recording sounds significantly better than this unknown generation tape. Listen to [[Just Can't Get Enough]] in its entirety, encoded as 320kbps MP3 from the master tape: <sm2>https://media.depechemode-live.com/stream/dm1984-03-05.aud.unknown.unknown.flac1644/jcge-master.mp3</sm2>
Nothing other than this track currently circulates from the master tape. Hopefully one day it will be shared.

A very good audience recording. This is a significantly better sounding source than the previous tape source I provided. Everything Counts is missing about 25 seconds from the beginning. Photographic misses 5 seconds from the beginning as well due to tape flip. A power failure occurred right at the end of Just Can't Get Enough (which is audible on this recording), and according to fan Stefano Delmonte, the song was played again, and then the usual final encore of "Boys Say Go!" was performed. Neither the second JCGE nor BSG! are present on this recording; the taper, Maurizio, was asked as to why he didn't tape the last two tracks, but he never responded. It may have been simply because the 90 minute tape used was of insufficient length to record the entire concert.
Alan Wilder reported in 1987 to Comast Magazine:
"[T]he power cord ran through the crowd and, just as we started the last song, [a fan] cut through the cable and everything went off!"
Italian press Il Resto Del Carlino reported in March 1984:
"Just Can't Get Enough had begun playing and, coup de thèatre, the lights and sound system shut down: later on it will be discovered that a mixer cable has been cut off, perhaps by an overzealous fan wishing to give his personal contribution to the group's performance, or perhaps even by someone who was annoyed by the event's success. The mishap however did not influence the audience's morale, who, cheerful and clumped, patiently waited for the glitch to be fixed just so they could listen to the British band playing for a few minutes more."
The master tape source does not currently circulate (I don't have a copy of it); the clip was posted in a previous torrent's comments on DIME to provide an example of how good the original recording sounds. As you can hear, this new low-generation tape source still has some quality loss, but it is still a significant upgrade to the previous source I provided and is a very enjoyable recording. Hopefully one day the master tape source will be shared.
Many thanks to Markus for providing this cassette, and to Giacomo for providing some background info about this concert and recording.
