A very good pre-FM broadcast recording. The songs contained here are from the TOTU tour rehearsals, because Wrong and Walking In My Shoes later appeared as bonuses on the "Tour Of The Universe" DVD. This pre-FM version does not contain the interviews found in the other sources, which are an FM broadcast capture and a webstream capture.

Unfortunately, this source seems to be lossy based on spectral analysis and auCDtectTaskManager's results, but out of the three sources, this is still the best sounding in my opinion. It does not have any FM radio dynamic range compression applied, it seems less lossy than the 128kbps MP3 webstream version, and it has none of the slight clipping that the webstream MP3 version has.

Note that there is a FM broadcast capture of this source, including an interview with the band interspersed between the songs, at Source 2.

And, that FM broadcast content was available to stream on NPR's website along with a bonus track (Come Back). That source was captured in its original MP3 128kbps format and split into tracks, and is available at Source 3.


You can listen to this entire recording below. Note that the original source appears to be lossy, so sound quality may be noticeably diminished compared to the original files that you can download in the archive below.
