A very good audience recording. This is a significantly better sounding source than the previous tape source I provided. [[Everything Counts]] is missing about 25 seconds from the beginning. [[Photographic]] misses 5 seconds from the beginning as well due to tape flip. A power failure occurred right at the end of [[Just Can't Get Enough]] (which is audible on this recording), and according to fan Stefano Delmonte, the song was played again, and then the usual final encore of "Boys Say Go!" was performed. Neither the second JCGE nor BSG! are present on this recording; the taper, Maurizio, was asked as to why he didn't tape the last two tracks, but he never responded. It may have been simply because the 90 minute tape used was of insufficient length to record the entire concert.

Alan Wilder reported in 1987 to Comast Magazine<ref>[https://issuu.com/neckcns/docs/depeche_mode_magazine_comsat_3_1988 Depeche Mode Magazine Comsat Issue #3, 1988]</ref> that "[T]he power cord ran through the crowd and, just as we started the last song, [a fan] cut through the cable and everything went off!". Italian press Il Resto Del Carlino reported in March 1984 that "Just Can't Get Enough had begun playing and, coup de thèatre, the lights and sound system shut down: later on it will be discovered that a mixer cable has been cut off, perhaps by an overzealous fan wishing to give his personal contribution to the group's performance, or perhaps even by someone who was annoyed by the event's success. The mishap however did not influence the audience's morale, who, cheerful and clumped, patiently waited for the glitch to be fixed just so they could listen to the British band playing for a few minutes more."<ref>[http://www.depechemodeitalia.com/press.htm Depeche Mode Italia]</ref>

This being one of the concerts of the final leg of the [[:Category:1983-1984 Construction Time Again Tour|1983-1984 Construction Time Again Tour]], [[Big Muff]] was performed in place of "Pipeline". The band lovingly referred to the song as "Big Cunt" on their set list sheets for the final leg concerts, and they also referred to [[New Life]] as "New Crap"; see here for an example: [[1984-03-08 Pacha Club, Valencia, Spain]]
