A very good audience recording. Somewhat noisy crowd around the taper. Bass is slightly distorted depending on the song. This is a well-recorded tape with Dolby B noise reduction utilized, so Dolby B was used during playback as well for a hiss-free capture. A tape flip occurs right after Master And Servant ends and the result is a little jarring, but no music is lost. Unfortunately, the first minute and 20 seconds of Enjoy The Silence are missing due to tape change, otherwise this is a complete recording. There is a 10-second drop in volume in the middle of Stripped which probably occurred when the recording deck's level adjustment was accidentally changed.

Many thanks to subwave collection CH for recording this concert and to Vince for his assistance with securing these tapes.
