Please note that there is contention regarding the true date of this audio. This FM broadcast as well as the 17.5-track soundboard recording are labelled as 1984-11-02, but depmod.com claims this London audio as being from 1984-11-03. The audio from all three sources (pre-FM vinyl and its "A Quick One" CD bootleg, this FM broadcast recording, and the 17.5-track soundboard recording) all match, so the only question is the date. There are no cuesheet scans from the original BBC pre-FM promotional vinyl and no recording of any radio announcer mentioning the date of the concert. I have asked Brat (webmaster of depechemode.com) but he does not have a copy of the original pressing vinyl including cuesheet, nor does he have any leads on tracking down the correct info and management would be of no help either. PeterToo's tape of the 17.5 track soundboard is labelled 1984-11-02, and twoshed's FM broadcast tape is labelled 1984-11-02 (info retrieved from an old section on BBC's website, unfortunately not even available on archive.org - but BBC's site does not have a perfect track record for accuracy). The only question is where depmod.com obtained 1984-11-03 as the date. I've requested scans of the original cuesheet, but nobody has come forth with any so far. Thus, for the time being, I will label this audio as 1984-11-03 until proof can be furnished confirming the date. In my eyes, that will be the original cuesheet that was with the BBC original pressing vinyl.

So, the only question is where depmod.com came up with 1984-11-03 as the date. I've requested scans of the original cuesheet on their forums, but nobody has come forth with any so far. Thus, for the time being, I will label this audio as 1984-11-03 until proof can be furnished confirming the date. I don't want to change the accepted date of this recording without concrete evidence; in my eyes, that will be the original cuesheet that was with the BBC original pressing vinyl.
