From the original uploader:
Here is finally the complete version of this show from a December 2005 transfer from first gen cassettes held by the taper. The master cassettes are gone. A 90-minute version of this show has circulated for some time, but this is 30 minutes longer.
In general this is a perfectly fine average quality recording, but just so you know the first two tracks are lower quality than most of the rest.

The end of The Losing End and the beginning of second TTN are lesser quality than the middle part of the show. 22 minutes into the second TTN there is 3-minute portion where the volume drops significantly. Normally I’d just raise the
volume of something like that, but it really didn’t help much so I just left it as is. After the 3 minute portion the sound improves again.

The only thing I did to the recording was clean up some of the cuts and adjust the pitch slightly (it ran a bit fast). Don’t let all of that get in the way though. This is a great show similar to the TTN shows in England a week prior. Historic stuff
with some great between song raps and a 35 minute TTN!

Thanks go out to the taper for his efforts 33 years ago as well as with the recent transfer.

  1. What a year for Neil Young. Thanks for sharing a piece of it here.

    (If you’re a Neil fan and haven’t read Jimmy McDonough’s “Shakey”, you’re barely worthy of the moniker. It is remarkable.)
