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.

Everything Counts is missing most of the beginning. Photographic misses some of the beginning as well. "Boys Say Go!" was not recorded.

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: Play

Nothing other than this track currently circulates from the master tape. Hopefully one day it will be shared.
