A very good audience recording. Clear, direct, and next to no crowd noise thanks to having been recorded from the mixing desk area. There's some slightly audible hiss because the tape was recorded at an extremely low level and without Dolby noise reduction. The first performance of [[Shout]] was not recorded; the song was restarted due to technical issues, and three-quarters of the restarted [[Shout]] are missing. Due to tape degradation requiring a physical tape splice, approximately 2 seconds of [[What's Your Name?]] are missing from the second verse of the song, and due to pauses in tape recording, the first few seconds of [[Photographic]], [[Dreaming Of Me]], and [[I Like It]] are missing. There are also some strange unexplained dropouts in the second half of [[Dreaming Of Me]].

Technical problems are initially encountered during [[Shout]] when the concert began. The song was restarted, but this tape unfortunately only contains the last 30 seconds or so of the restarted song. There were further technical glitches experienced throughout the concert; [[The Meaning Of Love]] and [[Just Can't Get Enough]] are songs which have quite noticeable technical problems with the synthesizers. Andrew Fletcher said in the November 1982 issue of One Two Testing magazine:
Technical problems are initially encountered during [[Shout]] when the concert began. The song was restarted, but this tape unfortunately only contains the last third or so of the restarted song. There were further technical glitches experienced throughout the concert; [[The Meaning Of Love]] and [[Just Can't Get Enough]] are songs which have quite noticeable technical problems with the synthesizers. Andrew Fletcher said in the November 1982 issue of One Two Testing magazine:

<blockquote>
"The [synthesizers] Roland, Moog, PPG, they were all causing trouble. We had to hire another [Moog] Source and Danny [Miller] programmed it in 45 minutes before the gig started. And then when we went on stage there was a big crash and we thought the PPG had blown up. It was the PA - even that had gone wrong."
