Download: FLAC/MP3

FM broadcast recorded to Maxell UDXLII cassette>Yamaha-KX330 tape deck>Terratec-EWX soundcard>EAC-WAV>Audacity-FLAC

This is straight from the mastertape. The only editing I did was that in the first 21 seconds of the Track 1 the right channel had static, so I pasted in a bit from the left channel. I have not done any other editing, EQing, filtering, or any kind of tampering with the sound.

I don’t put sound ratings on these uploads — I’d prefer to have somebody independent (such as yourself) judge that. So, after you’ve downloaded and listened, post a comment on the sound quality.

Additional comments from the original uploader:
Very good audience recording from Hamburg 1992! A recording which reflects the solid and good performance of that evening very well. Includes one of the best sounding versions of the rarely performed song When It Comes To You. Nice version of Tunnel of Love and more. Very good remastered sound. Solid Rock and Wild Theme are taken from another master and have less good sound, but the rest of the recording is excellent!
