A good audience recording. It can be a bit tinny sounding and the bass is slightly distorted depending on the song. This was uncommonly recorded with the first MiniDisc recorder on the market. There is unfortunately some diginoise for the first few tracks, but shortly after Walking In My Shoes begins, it clears up. MD uses a recording head which contacts the media, so if the taper moved around a lot, it could result in diginoise if the head was jostled during recording. "Mercy In You" is missing entirely, and I Feel You is missing about 20 seconds from the beginning due to MD and battery change, otherwise this is a complete recording besides the gaps from diginoise. There was about one blank minute at the end of One Caress that I trimmed off.

Thanks to Ronny for performing a direct digital rip from the original MiniDiscs.
