A very good audience recording sourced from master MiniDiscs. There are a few screamers near the taper, but thankfully they are quiet during songs for the most part. Bass can be just slightly distorted at times depending on the song. Halo has a small glitch toward the end, Walking In My Shoes has a small gap at the beginning, Enjoy The Silence has a small gap toward the ending, and a few seconds from the beginning of I Feel You are missing due to MD change. Unfortunately, the recording ends after Personal Jesus as an aisle attendant caused the taper to hide the device before the encore.

Immense thanks to davevil for lending me his MD masters all the way from Japan. Also, many thanks to Ryan J from ninlive.com for donating his old Sony MD player which I used to digitally transfer these MD masters.
