A very good audience recording. Bass can be a bit boomy at times. This is "Revision A" of this source; changes include speed correction and manual removal of 260 clicks during the last 17 minutes of the recording, which seem to have resulted from a bad or damaged CD-R copy. The source used for this revision also has better frequency response than the previously available version.

There is a gap in audience noise between Love In Itself and Get The Balance Right, but no music is missing. Pipeline fades in and is missing the first 50 seconds or so of the song. There is a cut during More Than A Party at 2:44 resulting in about 40 seconds of lost music. Otherwise, this recording is complete, as far as I know.
