Stellar sounding, well-mixed soundboard audio of two songs.

This concert was filmed by video director Blue Leach, and the three singles (Precious, "A Pain That I'm Used To", and Suffer Well) were released for promotional use to EMI affiliates around the world. These video clips are particularly notable as they bear visual similarities to the official Live In Milan DVD minus the video effects added in post-production.

Unfortunately, the video clip for "A Pain That I'm Used To" was not on this MiniDV tape. These videos were previously available on depechemode.com with poor video and audio encoding; these two songs are a massive upgrade to that.

The videos that this audio is sourced from can be found at Source 1.

Thanks to RyanJ for digitally transferring the MiniDV tape.
