From the original uploader:
I can not say with absolute certainty that this is sourced from the same aud. recording as LB-350. What I can say tell you is this (unlike the LB-350) does not contain the opening numbers by the backup singers. The sound is excellent and I am thinking it probably is
from the same source recording but I do not have a copy of LB-350 here to do a comparison.

From the original uploader:
A month after the Bruce Sprinsgteen show I recently uploaded I was back in Birmingham to
see Bob. A great seat, about ten rows off the front, mainly I think because I just missed
put on the first night, so got to the front of the postal queue for night two. I’ve seen
several claims about Bob being in poor voice on this night, but it didn’t strike me as
being particularly bad then, or now.

Received this concert in a trade several years ago, I know not from who, in exactly the
condition it’s in now. It’s not often that this tape circulates with the gospel intro
section intact, indeed it’s a rarity I think to find it on any 1979 – 1981 shows, although
I stand to be corrected.

This may be one of the two “released” versions with the gospel section added, or at least
not subtracted, or a completely different tape, hopefully somebody can tell us.

Pity that Walk Around Heaven All Day is cut (hacked to death) because I remember it being
a lovely song on the night, although many seemed to take it as an excuse to head to the bar
on the night!!!

Fingerprints files and md5’s included in each disc folder.
