A very good audience recording, but unfortunately incomplete due to a problem with the Sony recorder requiring the unit to be power cycled before recording could continue. Policy Of Truth is missing the second half of the song, "In Your Room", "Everything Counts", and "Precious" are completely missing, and My Favourite Stranger is missing the first minute of the song.

Martin's guitar sounds strange during Walking In My Shoes. Dave erroneously sings an extra chorus during A Pain That I'm Used To.

Thanks to Anonymous for taping and also thanks to Mike for arranging.

Both the original high-resolution 24-bit, 96KHz fileset and a downsampled version in 16-bit, 44.1KHz are available for download below.


You can listen to this entire recording below.
