Geetarz Comments:

This is one I received in trade some time ago, dumped to CD-R directly from analog tape, with no real song splits. 

Remastered in January 2009, I extracted the audio, applied a little gentle noise reduction and EQ, cut out some of the tape flips, and just generally made it more user friendly, no compression or other heavy-handed weirdness.

This tour has always been interesting to me, and it was under-recorded, so even though this recording basically isn't that good, I have enjoyed it because of songs rarely played in concert.

Now, it's said that you "can't polish a turd", but as the Mythbusters have pointed out ( it is at least possible to put a decent shine on it, and that was my goal here.

Again, this tour was under-recorded, and it's a pity. This was only the second gig of the european tour that year.
