WLIR 92.7 FM in Garden City, NY, USA broadcast some of this concert on Tuesday, March 19, 1985 at 21:00 during their "Tuesday Night Radio Concerts" program. The music was presented by Denis McNamara & Nancy Abramson and both announcers claim the show as a world exclusive from 1984-12-09 Hamburg, being recorded live for WLIR 92.7 FM. This radio broadcast is the only source for the track Ice Machine from this concert, which has not yet appeared on any official video or audio release.
Unfortunately, this specific recording was encoded as 128kbps AAC after being transferred from an unknown generation cassette. Sound quality is excellent, although a bit marred by the lossiness. See You is also incomplete, probably due to a tape flip halfway throughout the song. If somebody has any generation cassette tape of this FM broadcast they would like to contribute, please contact us at admin [at] depechemode-live [dot] com.
