A couple of people have asked me about this recording so I've had another look at it and made what I hope is as succesful a transfer from the 1st generation cassettes that I've had sitting here for over 10 years. Let me explain, the quality of the recording is excellent - a bit bass heavy, a couple of drop outs, a lot of yelling and screaming - but, overall, it's excellent. Until ...
The original taper (who can be heard throughout screaming his lungs out) was such a monumentally enthusiastic R.E.M. fan, that he couldn't stop himself from leaping around. This was fine until his tape recorder got fed up of being abused and cracked up. The resulting cracking up and drop outs begin in Finest Worksong (at the beginning of Disc Two) and persist through till the end of the show. The end of Gardening at night, the whole of Driver8 and the beginning of ITEOTWAWKi (AIFF) are missing.
Rest assured, the music in this torrent is an accurate and faithful clone of the original. It is what it is. Ii don't think another version ever showed up anywhere.

Everything else was done with TLH
