Notes from the original uploader – great performance. Sound quality is B+. There is some hiss and some minor distortion, especially in the electric sets. The sound seems somewhat compressed. I know this is widely circulated in various forms, none of which I’ve heard. I can’t tell you how it compares to the other sources. I suspect that this is a cleaner version.

notes from the original uploader:
This is a composite of two sources. A master cassette provides the portion from Black Peter up to the drum solo of Good Lovin’ as well as the last couple minutes of Lovelight. Possibly a monitor mix, the master cassette
portion varies in quality, most notably degrading in Black Peter and the end of Lovelight. A reel recording provides the end of Good Lovin’ through most of Lovelight.

It is possible that this is not the complete show, though it would be likely that only one or two songs may have preceded Black Peter. Sound Forge was used to normalize, correct the pitch of the master cassette portion, and
patch together the different sources.
This is a loud and very rowdy show, prompting some priceless banter from the band.
