A rather poor sounding recording. There is a considerable amount of hiss and background noise, and there are many excited fans around the taper making noise. The second half of the recording (Shake The Disease forward) is much noisier than the first half. "Pimpf" is missing entirely, Stripped is missing about a minute and a half of music near the beginning, Pipeline is missing the last few seconds, The Things You Said misses the first few seconds, Never Let Me Down Again is missing some music near the beginning, and A Question Of Lust is missing about 10 seconds from the beginning of the song.
