1986-05-25 Walter-Köbel-Halle, Rüsselsheim, Germany/Source 1
A good sounding audience recording. It's rather hissy. Everything Counts seems odd to me - the quality overall is better than the rest of the recording, plus the transition between audience noise is not seamless. It's also much hissier than the rest of the recording. I checked recordings of other concerts around this date, but none matched Dave's shouts; at first I thought it might be from 1986-05-24 Rotterdam as a couple of the shouts and overall quality matched, but then the final shout did not match. Ultimately, I don't know how to explain the quality difference of this track.
