Very nice quality audience recording from low generation CDR received in trade. As I was concerned about digital flaws described in Lossless Bob,
I have just played this through in headphones and the only problems I can find are a slight crack towards the end of Lay Lay Lady, and light intermittent ‘scraping’
during Dark Eyes which is hardly noticeable until it becomes more persistent in the last 40 seconds of the track. Not fatal by any means.

Have to say this is a thoroughly enjoyable show, with a tremendous ‘Desolation Row’, and a lovely ‘Big Girl’
