Notes

A very good audience recording. Some distortion at times, but otherwise enjoyable. There is a tape flip one minute in to Lie To Me and about 30 seconds of music is lost. The first several seconds of the concert intro is also missing. This source is much better sounding than the previous FLAC version of this source that was available, no doubt due to the low generation and transfer using very good equipment.

Many thanks to darkdevoted for obtaining the tape and performing the transfer.
