Now sourced from a 1st gen tape which is far clearer than the previous production. There is virtually no hiss on this recording whatsoever and the high end is much improved. Easily the single strangest source I have ever found. What is strange is that someone went through a lot of effort to remove everything that wasn't a song from the tape. There is very little applause between tracks and all of Geddy's banter has been edited away. This was actually done at the show! I'm not kidding, they paused between songs cause you could here the noise of a tape starting to roll from a dead stop to record. Not to take any away from the performance though. The sound is fine, nice and bright with a good balance between all the instruments. It is a little distant sounding at times. The one bad edit is the middle section of "The Trees" was missing, presumably when the tape switched sides. The whole concert sounds like a 1.5hr medley!    (2000-11-29)

This is definatly the best Exit...Stage Left show in terms of sound quality and in performance quality. The boys were up for the night, and it really shows in this recording how amazing these guys can really play. The boys really showed a good spirit for the night. The only thing that I don't really like from this is that the person who edited this edited all of the talking out. Thus the cut with The Trees, and I think Xanadu was also cut, but I really can't be certain about that. The sound itself is really loud, but it sounds very nice at medium volumnes. I've never heard the regular version of this show, but the Platinum Edition version of Vital Signs is definatly the way to go in terms of performance and sound.   (2009-01-01)
