I’ve previously posted this show from two other sources:

Child’s Balloon which you can find here.
Stadium of the Damned which you can find here.

Please note that what I previously posted as Stadium of the Damned may or may not have actually been that boot. Some of the text/art work files were screwed up so I couldn’t figure out if it was actually that boot or another source. I have since reuploaded the correct boot and updated the post. Sorry for the trouble.

This is an audience tape and contains TWO tracks missing from the PA tape.

This is #10 of my 1981 additions / upgrades.

probably same recording as jtt LB-5579 based on similar clapping at end of d1t14;
in comparison this is warmer but a little more muffled;
(did not listen to all of this)

  1. Okay, I think this is another version. I think it is the weakest of the three. I would suggest people go with Child’s Balloon as it has the best vocal sound. My $.02.

    But thanks again for all these gems!
