Audio 1 - FM vers.- upgrade dull but better - Sound 3 - 88min - low? - 25 tracks

Safe European Home (bassy variant)

Safe European Home (thiner variant)

Video - full audience recording ciculates

Pro Shot by the venue - Cameras rolled until the band refused to play at Spanish Bombs until teh venue stopped filming - footage thought to be lost.

Copies of this gig vary from crap to above average.

One version is a single cdr with 4 tracks missing. The second was a tape which the reverse of had lost all semblence of sound and was inaudiable losing half the gig.

A third has a better sound but not brilliant. A split mono, the lead, drums and vocals exist but not the bass and the sound range is a bit restricted. Added to this is a slighly distorted sound here, kind of swirling and a touch thin at the top end, though the concert was outdoors.

A fourth one came from a better source but was a bit blown out at the thin end, but not bad. [87.44]

The best one, is an upgrade, full and with reasonable clarity and good mix. It still is affected by the poor acoustics of an outside sound. The sound on theis one is more toward the bottom end. Avoid the other poor ones and get this.
