A good audience recording. It's mono and a little muffled sounding with occasional minor distortion, but quite listenable. More or less quiet crowd during the songs.

The director (?) even announces someone taping the performance; at 5:02 of the first Dream On take, he says "just a quick note there, just in case anyone else decides that they feel like trying to record this, stop those MiniDiscs now; we just found out someone in the audience with a MiniDisc player, so no remixes going out on pirate radio, we got that one didn't we, we did alright. So if anybody else is recording we'll send the boys in, basically. You wouldn't even get the whole album, anyway." I'd imagine there was at least one other taper at this performance since this recording exists, it sounds like they confiscated the other taper's gear.

You can watch the two songs in the form they were broadcast on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQ62Sisapz8

They are somewhat edited; Dream On is missing the middle instrumental break, and I Feel Loved has its ending cut short.
