An excellent soundboard recording sourced from the television broadcast. Like most TV broadcasts of the time, this audio is presented in mono. 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.

Source 1 is a reworked audio source which includes two additional songs ("My Secret Garden" and "New Life"), plus stereo versions of Boys Say Go! and Leave In Silence sourced from a stereo FM broadcast recording and utilizes the audio from this source for the remaining songs to provide the most complete version possible.

Source 4 is a very good FM broadcast master recording, sourced from an LP-mode DAT clone. It contains 4 songs.
