A very good sounding audience recording. Somewhat distorted bass throughout. Everything Counts and Photographic are missing parts of their beginning. The crowd is very enthusiastic for Boys Say Go!, so I tracked the song a little early to include that. I patched a missing segment of And Then... using an alternate source of the track which was found at the end of the B-side of this tape.
