A good audience recording with an excited and noisy crowd. The treble is somewhat shrill, and there is some distortion throughout. This recording was found on the same DAT tape as the previous 1988-05-04 Vancouver recording and has a similar sound throughout. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that they were taped by the same individual.

The beginning of Kaleid is missing, while Clean is missing about 15 seconds toward the end of the song, probably due to a tape flip. Compared to prior available sources, this version has less hiss, appears to have slightly less distortion, and has known lineage.

Since this is an LP mode DAT dub of the master cassettes, which limits the frequency response to 16KHz, this recording is considered a first-generation recording due to slight degradation of sound quality.

Many thanks to James K. for lending this DAT for archival.
