A good right-shot audience video recording, previously uncirculated. Video is fairly stable and clear throughout. Audio is quite good as well, and there aren't too many loud people around the taper. There is a slight amount of distortion and some light background clicks that can be heard throughout the video, but it is not too distracting. I had to paste the left channel over the right for the ending of Walking In My Shoes through a couple minutes in to Only When I Lose Myself because the right channel was damaged and had many dropouts. I masked the video overscan edges so they would not be distracting. Otherwise, I left the video and audio as-is.

Painkiller is missing the first few seconds and "Just Can't Get Enough" is missing entirely, and there are a few small cuts when the camera is moved around significantly, but otherwise this seems to be a complete recording.

Many thanks to Kevin Fitzgibbons for taping the concert and lending me his Video8 master to transfer on a high-end setup.
