A decent audience recording. It was recorded from the upper seating in the back of the venue (see photo below), so the recording sounds rather echoey and distant at times.

Dave messes up a line during Soothe My Soul (listen at 3:05). There is a false start for Personal Jesus.

Taper's notes

Taping location

Some moderate equalization and normalization made my mediocre first taping attempt much more listenable - I should've taken the effort to do this in the first place! It's still quite echoey at times, I can't do anything about that, but at least it's not a muddy, quiet mess anymore. A Question Of Time and forward don't sound as consistent as the first half of the recording for some reason - probably because I kept having to stand up to let people pass and that disrupted the mic positioning, plus I didn't stand for the entire recording which would have helped tremendously for the quality of the recording. You can hear an example of how big of a difference it made when I simply stood up and sat down during A Pain That I'm Used To - compare the beginning of the track to when I stand at 1:43, then after I sit down; it gets much clearer when I stand for those few seconds, and gets muddier when I sit back down. Bass is still somewhat overpowering for Enjoy The Silence through the remainder of the recording (with the exception of Home of course).
