A good audience recording. Some distortion and wow & flutter here and there, but overall fairly clear and enjoyable sound. It seems the two sides were crossfaded together, so the ending of Ice Machine and the beginning of Lie To Me overlap, but the previous version was missing the beginning of "Lie To Me" anyway. Other than some of the intro ambience to Somebody missing due to tape flip, this seems to be a complete recording with no missing music. This version is less hissy and has slightly better frequency response than the previous version, which was fallenqueen's transfer, also of a low-generation tape.

Dave doesn't begin the concert on the quite right pitch during Something To Do. Some samples are missing during Two Minute Warning, Blasphemous Rumours, and the beginnings of People Are People and Told You So. There are incorrect samples played throughout Everything Counts. A precursor to the concert in Lund two nights later with all its missing samples, perhaps?

Thanks to willer for transferring and sharing this recording.
