A bad audience recording - boomy, distorted, and muffled. It's nearly 100% mono. Up until 12:20 or so, there is a significant amount of wow (long-term, slow speed fluctuations). Afterwards, the tape plays OK. I speed-corrected everything past that to be approximately correct. At this point, the recording is actually listenable, if you'd like to try. The first seven tracks of the concert are missing, there's only about 1 minute 45 seconds of Pipeline, and there are some glitches causing missed music during The Landscape Is Changing. Otherwise, this seems to be a complete recording, but note that I didn't actually listen to the whole recording.

Thanks to weste for the transfer and permission to share the recording.
