Decent quality video which can get pretty blocky at times due to the low bitrate and resolution. It's blocky primarily when there's a lot of lighting changes or movement going on (i.e. during Black Celebration, A Pain That I'm Used To). There is a very irritating banner over the entire video. Good quality soundboard audio which uses high-efficiency AAC encoding to yield quite fair audio quality at a fairly low bitrate. This concert had the first performance of Shake The Disease on the Delta Machine tour.
My rip was flawless, except for some missing segments during Just Can't Get Enough; some missing around when Dave sings "and when it rains, you're shining down on me" and near the end, before Fletch's solo. The video stops, moves a couple frames, stops again, then continues. The audio is unaffected for most of the second batch of missing segments, but there are many missing video frames unfortunately. Just before the end of the song and Fletch's solo, both the video and audio stop for a couple seconds. My apologies, I don't know what happened since my connection was solid for the rest of the stream.
There was a dropout near the beginning of Walking In My Shoes, probably a technical error on the production side since others reported the same thing. The short 3-track FM broadcast is unaffected by this issue; find a recording of that broadcast at Source 3.
The announcer was talking over the very beginning of the concert intro. I retained all of the concert intro music despite her blabbering over it.
There seems to be more distortion overall from Personal Jesus forward - perhaps somebody at production ramped up the volume somewhere where they shouldn't have.
Some mistakes from this concert:
- Some Policy Of Truth samples were played during Should Be Higher, around the middle of the song.
- There is a false start at the beginning of Shake The Disease.
- Dave misses his cue during Soothe My Soul at "I can't stop / desire in me / I'm not waiting / patiently".
