This would be a decent audience recording if it weren't for the fact that some time during this tape's generation, an incomplete erasure occurred and now you hear most of the basslines from the tracks off "Singles 81 > 85" primarily in the right channel. I could drop the right channel to mitigate this, but it's still audible in the left channel too so I just left the recording as-is. The previous content isn't as audible as the recording goes on; by the end of the tape, you don't hear it nearly as loudly.

"I Want You Now", "World Full Of Nothing", and "Clean" are missing, probably because the taper forgot to flip the tape or was constrained by a 90 minute tape. The beginning of "Black Celebration" and most of "Route 66" is missing as well, otherwise this is a complete recording as far as I can tell.

Do note that this is a different source than the bootleg vinyl LP sourced audience recording at Source 2, otherwise I would not have bothered sharing this recording.

Thanks to Emmett for lending this tape out for me to transfer. I've asked him to ask his friends to see if any of them might have an unaffected or lower generation copy, but unfortunately they all discarded their copies long ago.
