A very good audience recording, although it has fairly objectionable hiss. Still, I feel it's overall better sounding than the previous lossless version shared by Wiecor (elviz101) which is muffled sounding and has unbalanced channels. It's your choice as to whether it's an upgrade.

Notable from this concert:

  • Martin dedicates Somebody: "I've been asked to dedicate this one tonight, to Evonne from Daryl. And the message is, he loves you."
  • Martin also sings "treat me like a dog" as Master And Servant begins. He sings this several times later in the song during the instrumental break (beginning at 3:04) as well.
  • During Master And Servant at 3:49, the distorted "master" sample is quickly repeated several times. I don't know if this was intentional or if it is the fault of the recording somehow - there is no other source available for this concert.
  • Dave dedicates Just Can't Get Enough: "This one is for an old friend of ours, and I hope he's wearing his wig tonight. This one's for Jo. This is Just Can't Get Enough!"
