A good audience recording. The left channel is louder than the right for much of the recording, and there is a moderate amount of hiss. See You through the end of the concert was quieter than the rest of the recording for some reason, so I normalized it again to -0.1dB to make the levels more even - this resulted in louder hiss for those tracks as well, however. Due to tape flip, New Life is missing the last few seconds of the song, and Shame is missing the first 35 seconds or so. Other than that, no music is missing from this recording as far as I know. Leave In Silence has some incorrect samples played at the beginning, and Martin sings "leave in silence" with a different inflection the last time those words are sung in the song.
Revision A notes: This tape was retransferred on the Nakamichi Dragon cassette deck on June 11, 2016 for better bass response and less wow & flutter.
Many thanks to Falko for lending me this cassette to transfer and share.
