A very good audience recording. This concert had the first live performance of Shake The Disease. Some wrong samples are played during Blasphemous Rumours at 2:45 and some wrong samples are played during Told You So at 2:16.

There is some vinyl surface noise and some light clicks and pops throughout, but I was able to remove the worst of the noise with automatic click removal. I added about 10 seconds missing from the end of Blasphemous Rumours and about 2 seconds missing from the beginning of Told You So from the next concert at 1985-07-07 Werchter Festival, Werchter, Belgium in order to complete the recording. Note that there is about 5 seconds missing at the very end of Master And Servant and I was unable to patch this flaw with Werchter's recording due to difference in sound and Dave's shouts.
