A rare show from the latter part of the Hemispheres show. The sound quality isn't fantastic as you can definitely tell it is an audience recording. The sound is a little distant and the resolution isn't all that good. You can hear the separate instruments for the most part but there are times in the recording where the signal seems to get very compressed to the left channel. I spend many hours trying to improve this recording, but I could only get so much out of it. It does sound better than the sources that I have found so far. There is also the last minute of Cygnus X-l that is missing when the tape was flipped during recording so the segue into Hemispheres is quite abrupt. The highlight is one of the better versions of Hemispheres I've heard, and at over 19min it is one of the longest. The other highlight is the introductory riff for Working Man, surf style! It is quite humorous, just as good as the reggae riff used during the MP and ESL tours a few years later. This concert is more recommended for completists such as myself and people that actually went to the show. You may ask why I even produced this show. Well, first I had 4 different sources for it, all sounded the same. Second, if people are going to trade this show, at least offer a better version of it than what is already out there. As with all Digital Reproductions recordings, it's only available via free trade and never for sale. Just visit the trading links section to find people that will gladly trade this recording for free.    (1999-04-01)
