An excellent audience recording with very direct and clear sound throughout. There is minimal chatter around the taper except during Soul With Me, the encore break, and Waiting For The Night.

A few tracks had to be manually patched due to interference noises caused by microphone adjustments or people accidentally hitting the mics while dancing.

Towards the end of Enjoy The Silence, a severely drunk woman stumbled into the pit, pushing everyone, including the taper. The interference noises caused by this incident have been patched out, leaving only the upset chatter of the audience. During Waiting For The Night, another drunk woman entered the pit, causing more interference that had to be patched out. Here are some more extensive notes from zzed101:

It was a great show from the start, nice atmosphere! We all had a fantastic time, you may hear my applause between the songs - if you listen carefully my singing even)) It should not bother anyone though, I paid attention to not interfere with the recording or 101united. But I will never understand how some people go to concerts just to get excessively drunk and piss off the other attendees who just want to have a great time ~or~ do a quality recording! Nevertheless, the show was great and we are happy how this recording turned out, despite the minor inconveniences - ENJOY!

Both the original high-resolution 24-bit, 96KHz fileset and a downsampled version in 16-bit, 44.1KHz are available for download below.
