Front artwork


A very good sounding FM broadcast, but inferior sounding to the other available sources. This is a speed-corrected rip from the 2x silver CD bootleg Performance. This bootleg is sourced from at least two tapes of the original Swiss DRS3 radio broadcast to yield a mostly complete recording. It is missing the intro but is otherwise complete. It has poor dynamic range and may sound rather muffled, likely due to the "NoNOISE" noise-reduction system by Sonic Solutions, USA" used. There are spoken "DRS3" watermarks throughout the broadcast. High-resolution and cleaned-up scans of all of the artwork are also included in the download and are available below as well.

According to Swiss newspaper records, this recording was originally recorded by DRS3 radio, with the first broadcast occurring on December 5, 1984, and the audio is said to have been mixed by Daniel Miller.

If burning the recording to 2xCD-R, the split is between Ice Machine and Lie To Me - in other words, CD2 will start with Lie To Me.

A pre-FM recording from this concert can be found at Source 1.

An excellent sounding master cassette FM broadcast recording is available at Source 2.

Many thanks to Ryan Mayer (RIP) for giving me this bootleg.
