A very good audience recording. Policy Of Truth has a missing segment due to tape flip.

This recording almost purely mono up until mid-way through Policy Of Truth for some reason, which explains the approximately halved bitrate compared to the stereo tracks (although, the entire second side of the tape, beginning with Clean, has double the bitrate despite having some mono tracks - don't know how to explain that one). I copied and pasted the left channel over the right, through 1:06:58.801 (which is the missing segment of POT, just before stereo begins). There was a constant ringing noise throughout the recording which I was able to almost completely remove with the notch filters.
