The best sounding, most complete version available of this FM broadcast to date. The beginning of Told You So is patched using a pretty bad sounding source, but otherwise the rest of the concert sounds excellent.

Dave misses an entire verse during More Than A Party. This recording is currently the only soundboard-quality source for And Then....

This was the live concert debut of People Are People; this is a "hybrid" playback / live performance, with choruses mostly playbacked and verses sung live. Some interesting synth lines are played in contrast to later live versions of the 1984-1985 Some Great Reward Tour. This version of People Are People was first performed at 1984-03-30 The Tube, Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, England, UK/Source 1, a short television performance, but as mentioned earlier, this was the first time People Are People was played during a concert.
