There is "master clone CDR" have circulated since 2002 from the taper Doug himself. However, the CDR version has only 61 mins because the taper lost the 2nd 60 mins tape which had the third side of this recording. Also the source tape got heavy tape transfer and the sound quality is horrible. On the other hand, there are very limited number of copies made in 1970s have circulated among old tape traders and that version have 77 mins of the show and the tape transfer is not so heavy. Still the sound quality is very poor, though. This title sourced unknown gen. old tape copy and has almost entire concert with slightly better sound quality than "master clone CDR". Again, the quality is BAD. The "master clone" also lacks latter half of 'Something for Nothing' and has only 11 mins of '2112' and it seems the source tape for "master clone" is 60 mins tape. On the contrary, this unknown gen. tape has complete 'Something for Nothing' and almost complete '2112' and cut is on Anthem' and it is just 45 mins after start the recording. This cut is available on "master clone" as well and it is thought that these facts implies the original taping was done with 90 mins tape but then copied to 60 mins tapes by the taper himself (and the third side was lost after that) and finally he used the 60 mins tape for making CDR. At the same time, the 90 mins tape copy which made from original 90 mins tape master have circulated among tape traders with remain original form. So, it could conclude that the "master clone CDR" is actually sourced 1st gen. tape. Anyways, here is the original entire recording from unknown gen. analog copy. Although sound quality is very bad, this recording has historical value at least. Jun'ya aka the_sphere   (2006-06-06)
