A very good audience recording. Christmas Island is missing the very beginning and strangely the ending as well, Black Celebration is missing the very beginning, and A Question Of Lust is missing about 12 seconds in the middle of the song. More Than A Party is also missing several seconds from the beginning. This source is different than Source 1 available on the wiki as well as the bootleg LP of that same recording.

Many thanks to Falko for generously lending me a batch of five low-gen cassettes of Elly's recordings from the Black Celebration tour to transfer.
