A good audience recording. This transfer is significantly clearer than the previous lossless version I had, but there's still a fair bit of background rumble / noise, and the audience can be very loud and overpowering at times. There are some small dropouts and missing segments here and there, but the recording is mostly complete. Christmas Island is more complete on this recording. Master And Servant played slow on the previous version as well as this version (master tape flaw?) so I corrected that. People Are People had a second or two of duplicated audio near the beginning and Just Can't Get Enough had Dave's "thank you" after the song repeated, so I removed those. The previous lossless version had clipping everywhere and this transfer has none whatsoever.
